    Hello,

    Bad links have some characteristics like:

    1. Website links that are not related to your sites
    2. Low Page rank and Low traffic links
    3. Links from link exchanges
    4. Link from the same anchor texts coming from multiple websites.
    5. Links from those sites that are not in Google index.
    6. Blogs or articles spam my links
    7. Paid links

    As long as you can avoid these seven characteristics, all of which can make a link “bad,” you'll remain in good standing:

    It's On A Low-Authority Or Questionable Domain.
    It's Pointing To A Source Irrelevant To Its Content..
    It's Repeated Too Many Times On The Domain.
    It's A Part Of A Reciprocal Exchange.

    It's Isolated From Any Meaningful Content. Posting any kind of link without content accompanying it is bad—it doesn't matter if you do it in a blog comment, forum post or any other medium. Your links need to have some kind of semantic context to them, and preferably in the body of a detailed, meaningful post.

    A bad link is simply one that violates Google's guidelines. Consequently, it can lead to Google penalties. You should look out for signals when building links, no matter where the links are coming from. Link farms, paid links, link wheels and other black hat link-building techniques can get you into trouble.

    When you detect a suspicious domain, click the number under the “backlinks” column for more details. The first thing you should do is to look at the anchor text of the link. If it sounds suspicious, incoherent or doesn't coincide with your niche, it can be a strong signal of a spam link.
