When launching Link Detox Boost, we confirmed it works for Manual Penalties. Now we can confirm it also helps sites trying to recover from a Penguin penalty . First disavow your unwanted links, and then use Link Detox BOOST to force Google to re-crawl those spammy links.
The client disavowed ~40% of his links on a Friday, reduced the Link Detox Risk (DTOXRISK®) to 207, and started Link Detox Boost on Monday. The next day the Boosted site moved up 20 spots.
