Gary Illyes says there is some lag with the process, but for most, it won’t even be noticeable. For the majority of SEOs, unless you are removing an entire disavow file with thousands of URLs, chances are the changes will be more subtle.
John Mueller suggested that SEOs do what they feel they should do with regards to disavowing and reavowing, and then let the situation settle.
It does go along with another “reavowing disavowed links” scenario that Gary Illyes & John Mueller commented on earlier this month. He suggested that when you disavow and see a drop in rankings, you start removing higher quality URLs from the disavow. Then, Mueller said “There’s no artificial delay / time-penalty, it’s just a matter of recrawling & reindexing / reprocessing the pages.”
What is unchanged seems to be the time for Google to process the disavows initially.
