    I think you are asking how you find if your site has a bad backlink associated with it?

    If you have signed up to Webmaster tools, this should give you a list of backlinks to your site. You can then investigate these manually to see if they look dubious.

    Alterntively, ahrefs, openexplorer or majestic will give a view of links to your site that you can also look at.

    Hi,

    Go to Opensitexplorer and log in to it, put your site url and export all the links filter all the links which isnot relevant to your site, that might be some sort of sape links (buy links) for example .ru sites....

    Check your site with Ahrefs or Opensiteexplorer services. All links that are not related to your niche, that are spammy and replaced on low quality sites can be considered bad backlinks.

    Personally I use all of the above tools mentioned, stick all the URLs I find into excel and pinpoint any bad links from there. Most of the time it's pretty obvious by looking at the URL of which is clear spam and is going to do more harm than good.

    Do you have a reason to believe there are bad links that's hurting you? What kind of link building did you do?
    If you didn't do something really shady, I'd recommend to focus on creating some more "good links", it's just a better use of your time and energy. Build them and don't look back.

    Even if we gave you tool to find the links, and a criteria to flag a link as "bad" -> you'll need to go over them one by one, taking them down, begging 3rd parties to take it down or modify it... Is this the best use of your time?

    Keep building, the good will cover for the bad.

    Before you do anything radical, make sure it was bad link or not which got you in trouble. Then use Google's link disavow tool to disavow it.
