What makes a Link Toxic?

Low Domain Authority Sites

Quality links come from authoritative websites. However, links from websites with a domain score of 40 or less will be considered toxic since they are created only to affect search engine results and are unreliable.

Mirror Pages

Mirror websites are duplicates of websites or pages with same content but different URLs. Be careful if you get links from many websites with the same pages and anchor text. These links are considered toxic by search engines, and your rating will suffer as a result.


Page segmentation has an impact on the link-building process as well. If you acquire the links from a website without an appropriate header, footer, or column design, they may be toxic. A bad layout is one in which the proportion of displayed text to HTML on a Web page is low.
