Google’s Gary Illyes: you do not have to submit a disavow file if you do not have a manual penalty

At the Pubcon Search, Social Media, Marketing conference in Las Vegas, Google’s Gary Illyes said that you do not have to submit a disavow file to Google if your website does not have a manual penalty:
