How do I disavow backlinks using Monitor Backlinks?

First, identify your bad links. Make sure that they are indeed bad links, because if you accidentally disavow good links, it will hurt your rankings. 

Second, disavow the bad links that you identified inside Monitor Backlinks. To do this:

go to Your Links:

check the links you want to disavow, click the "Disavow" button and "Disavow Domain" (Generally, we recommend disavowing the domain rather than the URL - here's why.)

Please note that our tool helps you easily create your disavow report, but you'll still have to download it from your account and then submit it to Google. 

Export your disavow report by going to and then clicking the "Export Disavowed Rules" button (If you have created a disavow report before using Monitor Backlinks, you have an option to import your old report in our tool.

Finally, upload the exported file to Google's disavow tool ( and submit it.
