    Question Identifying Bad Links

    I use Ahrefs and one of my clients has many more links than its competitors, but ranks much lower. I think it is because a lot of their backlinks are "bad links" and I need to put a disavow file together and submit it to Google.

    My only problem is that I'm nervous about submitting site's that are actually okay, and making my client's rank even worse. A lot of the links are from random blogspot blogs, and they look super sketchy.

    Any tips or guidelines for knowing which sites you should disavow, and which you should leave alone?

    Thank you in advance to anyone who contributes.

    Dealing with a similar issue, I'm using SEMrush tools. Any help from someone with more SEO experience would be appreciated.

    I suggest first of all collects all backlinks from Ahref after you can arrange all links high,medium and low quality category,check all category sites and see which are not found,not open and low quality site with low page rank,DA& PA - these types of sites are add into disavow..
