Is this type of links considered "bad links"?

    Hey,

    I've been reading and watching some posts and videos on how to disavow backlinks and how to find "bad links" or low quality backlinks.

    Here's my question/doubt:

    1 - Let's assume a brand that sells an online product/service to generate money for their users.

    And, there are many users/bloggers from ".blogspot.com" that post articles on "How to generate money with product/service "X". These webmasters just simple put a backlink to the product/service (some of them even use a referral/affiliate link).

    2 - A brand that is somehow in the adult niche with backlinks from adult content sites. For instance: ynot, avn and xbiz. These sites have good authority but as we know, they’re not indexed on Google.

    Should the owner of the product/service disavow those backlinks/domains on Search Console?

    Cheers.

    Number 1 is how Amazon ranks for anything.

    I don't know about number 2.

    Google cant even give you a clear definition of a "bad link"

    People still ranking with spam.

    So, your POV is to disavow links acquired from spam sites if the brand has done link building on it?

    For those who doesn't implement black hat link building techniques you should not disavow?

    3 - You can have several links from foreign blogs that looks spammy. In these cases you have the same opinion?
