Title: I'm a SEO newbie, how to avoid toxic Backlinks?
Post by: venkatweetz on 04-14-2018, 13:09:13
I have a new website that I want to rank it on google and other search engines. It’s a common understanding that bad links could affect my ranking. How do you put bad links into a site? I assume this is the same thing as a backlink? If so, how do I avoid backlinks being put on my site.

Considering the number of websites out there that tell you link building is a “must do” in terms of achieving high rankings in the search engines, it’s no wonder that so many new webmasters run out and begin creating as many links as possible, as fast as they can. Be cautious about submitting your website if any of the following backlink methods occur:
- Only submit to directories relevant to your niche.
- Don't submit to sites that aren't relevant to the focus of your site.
- Avoid pages with links inside of frames (this will steal your traffic).
- Don't submit to blog networks and limit blog rolls
- Don't submit to article networks (they post your article to multiple sites).
- Don't let anyone link to you from every page of their website (sitewide links unless they are nofollowed).

You control most of your link building, so just be careful not to submit your website to be listed or bookmarked on any spammy, low-quality websites. If you are curious about a website's authority or spamminess, use Moz's Open Site Explorer tool.

Do not generate backlinks from low DA sites and Do not generate backlinks from irrelevant site to your business. Yet you did this already you disavow those links as well.

there are obvious "spam" domains - backlinks from websites associated with pоrn, gambling, pharmaceuticals, and, increasingly, cryptocurrencies are red flag. But also from websites with thin, low quality content (especially those full of cheap marketing and affiliate links).

But more than that, bad link building involves trying to build too many links too soon, which is a clear red flag to google, or bombarding your site with links to unrelated sources.

If your site hurts because of low-quality backlinks then the simple solution is, Find those bad links (You can use Ahrefs Trail version to do this) note down all your bad links and then send them to google disavow tool (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/disavow-links-main), Google team will review the links and remove the authority/link juice you're getting from those links after then make some good links on your website make sure they are relevant to your niche and you will see your website will be recover day by day, That's it :)

A must is to avoid any kind of bulk services such as ones that offer to submit your sites to 500 directories at the same time, or use tools to create 100's or even 10,000's of links at once ( and there are many like that around)
Always create all links by hand and spend time looking around the site first to see if it is clear of spam or other problems.

I have never had that problem. I focus on high page rank do link links. You need to do some daily. Even if it is a small amount. Time is the big issue morving up on SEO.

Use the sites for submission which have high domain authority ( DA ) and page authority ( PA ). It will help to build quality backlinks on your website and also there is no chance for toxic links.

Toxic Backlinks are the unnatural links that harm the search rankings of a website. When there’s a huge log of toxic backlinks, you can ask Google not to take these links into consideration. However, use the tool only after you have made every effort to get the bad links removed. Do keep in mind, disavowing backlinks doesn’t help you get away with the Penguin Penalty and cannot get the lost ranking back. You will have to remove each and every bad link manually if you have been penalized by Google.

Link Building can be termed to be amongst the most vital SEO activities. However, this definitely doesn’t imply that you should build links at any cost. Truly and figuratively as well. Link building can prove to be extremely costly as far as time and money is concerned. There are a number of link building mistakes that you just cannot afford to commit. We will be identifying them over here, just for you..

Costly Link Building Mistakes You Should Avoid:-

1. Verify if backlinks have a “nofollow” attribute:
Link exchanges are as yet one of the white hat approaches for building backlinks, however tragically, there are numerous deceitful webmasters, who will cheat you. One of the scams is the case when you pay someone for a backlink, it all of a sudden vanishes or has the “nofollow” attribute. That is the reason you should check now and again, if the link is still present and on the off chance that it doesn’t have the “nofollow” attribute.

2. Earning good quality links, but with anchor texts that are of no use:
It happens to be incredible when PR of the site you are getting links from is high, however, when the anchor text is “Click here!” or similar, such kind of a link can barely be useful. Keywords present in the anchor text are important, so if the backlink doesn’t include them, it cannot prove to be a valuable one. Verifying the anchor text of links takes time, however, the Backlink Anchor Text Analyzer tool can carry out this difficult job for you.

3. Backlinks coming from irrelevant websites:
Now, this Link Building related mistake is an extremely prevalent one! When searching for backlinks, one should focus only on the relevant sites. On the off chance that you have a dating site, links coming from a finance one cannot prove to be valuable. The fact is that it is difficult to discover relevant sites to get links from yet until your site falls under an extremely narrow niche, odds are that there are hundreds or even thousands of relevant websites from where you can get a backlink. In the event that you require a rundown of such websites for your niche, you can try out the Backlink Builder and check out what recommendations it can provide you with.

4. Having an image link (when there is a feasibility of a text link with keyword):
At times when web masters rush to get backlinks, they tend to oversee minor details, e.g. Anchor text. Truly, an image link is good to have and it could also result into more number of visitors rather than a text link (if the image is appealing, obviously and users click on it) however for SEO purposes, nothing can beat a keyword in the anchor text.

Though you are suggesting sort of right things, reading your advice people might think that they should avoid nofollow links and neutral anchors like “Click here!”, which is not right, because these things should also be a part of your backlink profile unless you want Google to suspect you for unnatural link earning.

It’s not really hard. All you have to do..
-Collect the list of all URLs where toxic links to -your site are published
-Save this list in .txt file
-Submit the list to “Google Disavow Tool”
-Done
All the link which are submitted there become ignored by Google and can’t harm you from this point.
