" Mueller responded the following: "Usually we do not talk about how many algorithms we use.
We publicly state that we have 200 factors when it comes to scanning, indexing and ranking.
This question was put to the John Mueller, the company’s employee during the last video conference with webmasters.
For instance, one algorithm can be used to display a letter on the search results page.
The question to Mueller was the following: "Some time ago we sent a report on a spam, but still have not seen any changes. " The answer was: No, we do not check all spam reports manually.
" Later Mueller added: "We are trying to determine which reports about spam have the greatest impact, it is on them that we focus our attention and it is their anti-spam team that checks manually, processes and, if necessary, applies manual sanctions.
I have it for 4 years already and I do not have a file named Disavow. Thus, in the case when before a website owner was engaged in buying links or using other prohibited methods of link building, then conducting an audit of the reference profile and rejecting unnatural links is necessary in order to avoid future manual sanctions.
It is important to remember that rejecting links can lead to a decrease in resource positions in the global search results, since many webmasters often reject links that actually help the website, rather than doing any harm to it.
