Why are my backlinks in the Backlink Audit tool shown as dangerous? Question

While having backlinks pointing to your site is one of the best ways to improve your SEO, not all backlinks are good. Google rewards websites with few backlinks of high quality (for example, links coming from NYTimes.com or HuffingtonPost.com) over websites with hundreds of backlinks from low-quality spam sites (such as irrelevant websites from foreign countries or unrelated locations). Having high amounts of spammy backlinks could result in a penalty from Google, and is therefore dangerous to your SEO.
