There’s a lot of talk about good backlinks and bad backlinks. Good backlinks are those that help your business, but bad backlinks can hurt you. If you have a site with hundreds or thousands of links, it might be difficult to find out which ones are good and which ones are bad. Luckily, Google has developed its own tool called Disavow Links which allows you to easily remove irrelevant links from your website. Here’s how:

Go to Google Search Console and select ‘Manage Site’.

To remove backlinks, you will need to access Google Search Console. This is a free tool that allows you to manage your site’s presence on Google. You can check your site’s ranking, crawl errors, and backlinks from here.

To access this feature:

Click on ‘Search Traffic’ under the ‘Search Appearance’ section and select ‘Links to Your site’.

Click on ‘Search Traffic’ under the ‘Search Appearance’ section and select ‘Links to Your site’.

You will see a list of backlinks to your website.

Look for any relevant links that do not help your business.

Once you’ve identified the high-quality links, it’s time to look for any relevant links that do not help your business.

Looking for low-quality or spammy links can be a bit trickier than finding good ones. You’ll need to use some common sense and make sure that every link you remove makes sense from an SEO perspective. If it doesn’t make sense, then there’s probably something wrong with it!

Remove backlinks using Google

Click on ‘Disavow Links’ and enter the URL of the link you want to remove.

To remove a link from Google’s index, follow these steps:

  • Sign in to your Google Search Console. If you don’t have an account yet, create one here.
  • Select “Manage Site” from the left menu and click on “Search Traffic” under the “Search Appearance” section.
  • Click on “Links To Your Site.” You’ll see a list of all backlinks pointing at your website with information about each one including its anchor text and URL (e.g., [www1].com/page1). If there are any relevant links that do not help your business (such as spam), select them all by clicking on ‘x’ next to each one until they’re all selected; then click on ‘Disavow Links’.

You can get rid of bad backlinks using Google’s Disavow Link tool.

The disavow tool is a great way to remove bad backlinks that are hurting your business. You can use it to get rid of links that aren’t helping you, or even those that are irrelevant.

To do so:

  • Go to and sign in with your Google account (you’ll need one if you don’t already have one).
  • Click “Disavow Links” at the top of the page, then select “Remove Links To Your Site.”
  • Next, click “Browse Files” and upload any files containing URLs from which you want to be removed from Google’s indexing system–this includes any files containing lists of URLs such as spreadsheets or CSV files saved on your computer; these should also contain both domain names and exact match anchor text references for each URL listed within them


Google’s Disavow Link tool is a great way to remove bad backlinks from your website. It’s important to keep track of your backlink profile and make sure it reflects positively on your business. If you don’t know how many links are pointing at your site or what kind, then use this guide as a starting point for cleaning up any issues that may arise from time to time when building relationships with other websites online!
