The archaic practice of contacting website owners in an attempt to get any damaging links removed may finally be over.
You see, quality incoming links are an important part of any SEO effort - they tell the search engines that your site has clout. Spammy incoming links can actually do the opposite and your hurt rank.
In a move that shows Bing is trying to win the hearts and minds of SEO professionals, Bing recently announced you can “disavow” incoming links within Bing Webmaster Tools. Rest assured, Google will follow with a similar tool.
