    Backlinks created 8 years ago but the new website is totally different.


    Hi,

    So I've started a website a couple of months ago to sell computers online. I just noticed that the website used to sell baby clothes back in 2009.
    My issue is that there are a few backlinks out there directing to my website but to sell baby clothes.
    The DA on which the links are are quite good so I'm not sure how it will affect my website.
    Should I remove them or keep them as they're not spam?

    They have nothing to do with your niche so could be giving the wrong signals. Personally even if they are good links I would remove them.
    As your using an once used domain you should really look deep into the backlink profile to see if it could prevent you ranking in the future.
    IMHO
