Google’s John Mueller: bad links can be obvious

On Twitter, Google’s John Mueller said that bad links should be obvious to experienced SEO’s. You only have to disavow links if it is obvious that the links are harmful:

Which links should you disavow?

You only have to disavow links if you actively built spam links in the past. It’s normal that the quality of the links that point to a website varies. Google know that and these low quality links don’t influence the rankings of your website.

If harmful links aren’t obvious to you, you can use the Link Dinsinfection tool in SEOprofiler. The Link Disinfection tool shows you the bad links that point to your website. It also creates a file for Google’s disavow links tool for you.
