    Use linkresearchtools.com to find links and Google disavow to remove.

    That being said, make sure to double-check which ones you're disavowing because if you do it too much, it may hurt you. Disavow really bad links with low or no PR and keep the ones that might be helping you, especially if your site is not actively building new good links.

    After identifying the bad links using the linkresearchtools.com, you can remove those links by contacting the website owner to remove it. Or, you can disavow the bad links.

    There is a Disavow Tool by Google. Should be one of the best ones to do so.

    Once you have found the toxic backlinks using tools like linkresearchtools, you should take immediate action to clean them up by contacting webmaster or disavow tool.

    Sites which are not indexed by Google.
    Overuse of Anchor Text.
    Links from Irrelevant & ‘Untrustworthy’ Sites.
    Sites with a virus or malware.

    You can try SEO SpyGlass for this (available in free edition). First, the tool collects all your backlinks, then you check a metric called Penalty Risk to see if any link is toxic (and lots of other factors to look at). After that you add bad links to disavow list (or disavow an entire domain) and export a ready-for-submission disavow file right from the app.
    In case you can reach out to site-owners and ask to remove the link or make it nofollow - that`s better, but chances are you`ll still just disavow the link through Google Disavow Tool.

    I recommend first trying to contact the site owner linking to your page. Google doesn't "like" to have a long disavow list. We had a penalty once because of bad links and disavowed all links with google's disavow tool. They didn't remove the penalty. After a few rounds and also feedback with Google they told us that we need to "work" on removing bad links. We could remove a lot of links by contacting the site owner and disavowed the rest. Then penalty was removed.

    After you find out the link, go ahead and disavow it using Google Disavow tool. That's the only thing you can do if the site owner doesn't strip the link upon your request.

    Sign up for google webmaster tools, which will give you access to googles disavow tool. From there you are able to remove the bad links
    Hope this helps!

    I haven't check the bad links cause i don't have money to buy linkresearchtools, is there any way on how to check other bad links to my site for free? The linkresearchtools is free for 3 links.

    I have webmaster tool but i need to check the bad links 1st before eliminate them.

    You should update your Google disavow file daily to keep those spammy links away.
