    Hi,
    I'm sorry for my ignorance and this very basic question but there is one thing on my mind
    that I couldn't figure out yet.

    I read it everywhere on BHW "build quality backlinks" but how do you distinguish that
    a Backlink is high quality and low quality? I know about Tools like ahrefs but what do you
    look for in a "quality link"?

    Why is a editorial backlink from sites like huff post considered as "quality backlink"? What exactly makes it so valuable?

    This is an awesome thread with HQ sites but I'd like to understand WHY this sites are high quality? How can I check this?

    Please apologize for that many questions

    Quality links come from sites that are not spammed and whose content is moderated and well maintained.

    Quality links come from a strong domain that Google trusted. Has a well-structured code so search engines can easily find them and rank them high.
    Low-quality (Bad) links come from untrusted and unrelated sources. Usually, comes from sites that are penalized and those that are violating Google's Webmaster's guidelines.
    Too many bad links can decrease your organic traffic and it'll be harder for you to recover from Google penalties.
