Is it still possible to lower down the percentage spam score of a site? I have already disavowed the links which contain a high percentage of spam score. Even removed a few links through email outreach. Then requested indexing of the site in GSC. But still, when I checked it, the spam score is still the same, 60%. Any ideas?
It's a madeup score that doesn't matter. None of the 3rd party tools out there have any idea if you disavowed links or not, so that is not taken into account at all. Removing bad links will help, but you will have to wait for that tool to notice the link no longer exists. Honestly though, I wouldn't go disavowing links or removing them based on what some 3rd party tool said about your links. I would only do it if I actually saw a ranking drop or manual penalty.
Build one or two more quality links to the site. Just two Wikipedia links will bring that score to 1. Alternately, just wait 2 weeks, it will disappear. The spam score is a made up score. NB, the two method above gas worked well for me. Twice. Especially if it's an expired domain.
