    I've always heard that negative SEO when failed will just make you stronger, but I believe that some kinds of links should still be removed, my second top anchor is a random japanese/chinese word, obviously those kind of links just don't fit and should be removed, but how do you actually identify the type of links that should be worth removing?

    One link from respective source is good. Open webmaster search console, checked all the domains which linked back to your web. If you find multiple links coming from a single domain that will be good idea to add this in disavow list. You can also removed irrelevant or poor quality links.

    Hi spectrejoe

    Pruning out the links from your site is pretty simple.Here is a list
    • Non English Anchors
    • Unrelated Anchors\
    • Numerous links that has same anchor and comes from same source(Mostly sidewide links).
    The above said doesn't work for you anymore and you can give them a bid adieu.

    And a footnote for you,

    The bad/good old technique building tons of back links with adult/porn anchors to your site's homepage-Abandon them already.



    Thankyou

    Links from high authority source is a good one which gives traffic to site.You can disavow the links which is from hacked or false sites,multiple links from same source,unrelated links or broken links by using webmaster tool.

    It's way easier if you have some type of tool available to evaluate links in bulk. The overall process is:
    1. Download links from Google Search Console
    2. Toss links into your tool
    3. Find what you want to keep and get it out of that list (high authority/trust, good topical relevance, etc)
    4. Start with total shit domains linking to you. This could be .xyz, it could be piles of automatically created PBNs, etc. If you have a tool to evaluate authority/trust and/or indexation, great. Get rid of the nastiest domains. Don't just disavow a link, kill the whole domain.
    5. Move on to links of low authority/trust that have no topical relevance. Foreign language isn't necessarily bad, but it is if it comes from a shit page.
    If you have no tools at all, then download links from GSC and then sort them by URL. Find the shit domains that are linking to you more than once and disavow them. Then move on to URLs that look funny, like they're automatically created, and check each individually.

    You don't know, and that's the point of it. They want you to go over and beyond what they found so you help them find your other shady links for them.
