How much time it will take to recover my traffic?

From Nov 28 my search traffic decreased a lot, I discovered in GSC that from that time I got 40 low quality spammy backlink from 10 domain. I disavowed these 10 domains, how much time it will take to recover my traffic?

  • Michael Martinez: If the links were really hurting your site Google has said it could take several weeks to a few months. It depends on how quickly they recrawl the links and process the disavows.
  • Alan Bleiweiss: And it could be that something else caused the problem you are having. No way to know without either doing a deep dive across the spectrum of signals or waiting to see if the disavow resolved it.
  • Toka Janelidze: I think I got negative SEO attack from competitor because: - All 10 websites has same theme - Are registered on same registrator - No any content expect my links and spammy ads - It links to my top performing posts
  • Toka Janelidze: I know it can take months but since it`s only 10 domain maybe it will be quick?
  • David Ogletree: What may have happened is that you got a lot of value from those links and then lost that value when Google removed their value
  • Ryan Jones: Disavowing links usually never gets rankings back unless it was a manual penalty. It’s because of what David said above. Or because the links weren’t really the cause of the drop.
