Toxic backlinks

    Hello guy.

    I ran backlink crawl with semrush for our our ecommerce website and there were so many toxic backlinks, more than 1000 of those.

    Problem is, we did not created those backlinks. It seems, like they are somehow generated. Sources are very weird. Target were mostly url of our product pictures. As example I am sending screen with info from semrush:


    And examples of urls here:
    Stats from semrush:

    Question 1: Does anybody have clue, why there are such backlinks / what could cause creating/generating them?

    Question 2: What could I do to get rid of them? Would it be reasonable to use google search console disavow tool for that matter?

    Question 3: Is it possible that our website has worse domain authority thanks to that?

    Thanks a lot for any answer
    Solved! View solution.

    If you have time then disavow them ...... In my opinion leave them because Google ignore these types of links and do what you are doing to get high quality backlinks and traffic. I notice in SEMrush for my client's website that 220k backlinks while he did not start any link building activities for his site ...... So, its unbelievable for me.

    Someone uses (as the content for
    their sites) the links to your sites.

    Usually, some type of the back end scraping robot
    provides the information for the front end software,
    which frames this information into the suitable templates.

    Anything is possible on the Net, but the
    probability of such influence is negligible.

    Don't worry, be happy, ...

    How to Resolve Toxic Backlinks
    I agree, write a disavow request to Google in which you list the links you which Google to ignore. You may also send a "Cease and Desist" note to webmasters that have many links on the same network.

    What are Tocix Backlinks?
    These are undesirable links that appear on websites in one of these three groups
    1. Link farms, or websites created for outbound links
    2. Unrelevant topic or niche
    3. Websites not indexed or are blocked or banned on Google
    How are these links generated?
    There are many ways that these pages can link to your website. The most common is via a bot with the aim of upselling to the indexed website.
    Others may be by natural referencing or malicious tagging. Either way, they can be damaging to your website. Remove them asap.
