    I am starting a fresh link building on a new website, please advice me what are best type of links and what are the ones to avoid.

    As far as i know good links are from high pr/pa/da, low obl.

    I would like to know, when purchasing backlinks directly for money site what links should i avoid?

    As far as i know bad links are usually high obl blog comments, profile backlinks.

    Unless you really look at the backlink profile directly on each website, the easiest way to bulk verify potential link targets are PR/PA/DA. An extremely good link target would have links that don't look like they were built by an SEO'r. Unless the SEO'r is very good, it's pretty easy to tell the footprints between a real link profile, and a manufactured link profile.

    I would avoid any links that are part of a massive link network (unless it is a churn / burn site). Take a look at the content as well. If the content looks like crap, it's very possible the inbound links to that site are crap too.

    It's never bad to check the trust flow on majesticseo.
    Also like it was mentioned PA/DA is important, more than PR

    Links from scraper sites.
    Backlinks from link farms, link exchanges, and similar groups
    Mirror sites or repeated websites designed just for more links.
    Links generated by scripts and software.
    Backlinks from "bad" sites.
    Website directories designed to increase rankings.
    Reciprocal links.
    Sidebar or footer links.
    A multitude of links from the same website or with the same text.
    Listings on link pages.

    The best links are contextual links from authority domains with relevance. Anything from sitewide and/or like comments without protections, cheap directories of which ever kind, worthless wikis, crappy bookmarks, profiles and any links with outrageous OBL (30+) should be avoided at all cost.

    Just imagine what a natural link looks like... Is it a link to payday loans from a chinese page with no other text in english? Is it a link at the bottom of a page which looks like it was injected there by an exploit? Or is it a link in a news article relevant to your niche and which suddenly mentions your product?
