After a Link-Based Penalty is Removed, Will Your Traffic Increase?

"There are many articles written on what steps can be taken to recover, but not many on what to expect once you have done the work to get out of the penalty. Will your traffic increase suddenly? Will you see any increase at all? Will you see a decrease in traffic because you have disavowed links?"

Given the massive number of unnatural links penalties that were delivered last week, this post is extremely timely.  It also offers a much needed reality check for site owners that are trying to recover from penalties.
