    Is there any tool to check that? What metrics should we consider to determine quality of a backlink?

    I check 4 things:

    - number of outbound links on the web page
    - the anchor text, and what the webpage actually is.
    - the PR (hasn't been updated in a while, but still hands down the best metric)
    - whether it's nofollow or not

    I've never been a fan of the metrics ahrefs majestic etc provide.

    I would suggest that you use link detox. It is a well known tool and is recommended by a large number of webmasters and used by many SEO agencies.

    These are the things we should concentrate mainly when evaluate the quality of back links,

    Links from relevant high authority trusted sites.
    Links should be placed on a website with low number of OBL.
    Links should be placed on a website that is frequently indexed by Google.
    Links should be placed on a website that are not De indexed, not banned, not on link farm, not on bad neighborhood sites.

    You need to check the OBL, PA/DA and root domain PR to understand the quality of backlink.

    This tool "openlinkprofiler.org" is quite useful to you for checking backlinks. I recommend you use this tool.

    Only experience can help you to find it as it was created by analyzing manually from experts a lot of sites assigning a value to the quality or spam. If you're linked from spam site you're spammer, if you're linked from quality site your site have more authority than before.

    You should consider few metrics. Unique content, PR, DA, PA, MozTrust, MozRank, TF, CF, backlink portfolio of website are important.
