Here's my question- How can you really tell if a website is hurting you? Do you check that website's page rank and/or monthly traffic? Or can you tell by looking at it that it's spammy?

This is the problem. It is very difficult to say absolutely, definitively, if you may have been affected by 'bad links' as opposed to some other Google (or Bing, or ...) algorithm change.

This gets even worse trying to say any specific site may be the culprit.

This is why, unless you are as sure as you can be that you have been negatively affected in the SERPs (i.e. ranking drop or removal etc.) and can be fairly (or very) certain that it was as a result of this or that or these links I rarely advocate removing them.

You are as likely to remove 'good' links (whether they should be good is another matter) as you are bad links.

For removing bad backlinks, Google webmaster is the best way. There is a option for removal of links in Google webmaster. You can request to remove all your bad URLs from search engine. Google will consider the requested URL and delete in some days.

That would be my concern with the disavow tool. I guess we have some idea of the type of sites that Google considers spammy but you still don't know for sure.

Its better not to play with whatever's out there. Rather, you should concentrate on getting more quality links out there. I personally see the bad links not affecting you much on Google, if you cover them up with good ones and assure that not more new links are added in the coming future.

Yes you need to remove the backlinks which are not related to your keywords. But the links which are some how related to your keyword but not your exact keywords you can still keep them. Although you don't have to worry for old links you can start your seo with a better company.

Disavow links is not about that you can just say google to remove links!

If you don't want to link your site from this various unranked back link then tell your seo company provider they review your site's back link and they remove all this back links which linked from your site.

You should only use the disavow tool only on the links which you havenít been able to remove manually or your ranking may be dropped. Use this tool as the last resort after you have made all efforts to remove links manuallty.
