    Why overnight has my blog got 369 backlinks from a forum website?

    The links are linking to a image I uploaded to my website that I got of pixbay (allowed to use)


    I have not used any black hat link building - meaning every link that is on my site I reached out to other website owners,

    Why is this happening? Should I be worried?

    Someone in the forum hotlinked to your image. Check the backlinks at ahrefs or some other tool and you will see where it is linked from.

    Are they safe?

    Will this negative SEO my site?

    Should I remove them or keep?

    If you ask me that is a natural linkback that you have got. However, it depends on a lot of factor and number of your current backlinks, content around the backlink etc. Watch closely and take the decision when required to pull the plug on that hotlinking.
