hello Dani community. hope you guys are doing fine. My name is Manzar the comapny i work for as SEO strategist happens to be a fashion house that owns two online fashion stores namely www.dressrepublic.com and www.raneemstore.com
The SEO guy before me inserted the inbound link of Dressrepubic (DR) store into the footer of Raneem Store (RS) to improve the ranking of DR website (as you can see at the bottom of the home page of Raneem store with the anchor text "eCommerce Solutions") which resultantly has created over 22,000 inbound links for Dressrepublic.com coming from Raneem store.
My question is: in a post-penguin world, are these links still good for Dressrepublic store in terms of SEO, or should I Disavow all those links as Matt Cutts can potentially flag them as spam? i personally think i should disavow all those links and also remove the inbound link for DR in the footer of RS to cage the beast! thanks for your time!
