    Google recommends that you should only use this tool if you know what you're doing: "We don't recommend using this tool unless you are sure that you need to disavow some links to your site and you know exactly what you're doing."

    According to Google, the disavow tool is only a suggestion to Google and it does not mean that the links will be ignored. Google also says that it will take a few weeks until they process your request. Basically, Google says that they will continue to judge the links as they seem fit.
