Toxic Backlinks

I created a redirect from a company we acquired to our site. In my backlink audit, it shows this link as extremely toxic. What are my options?

Toxic backlinks are the unnatural links that can harm the search rankings of your website. I would suggest to make a list of those links and disavow them through your search console or if you have control over those backlinks just delete them from those websites.

Obviously! you need to disavow bad backlinks, but keep in mind if you have really unnatural links in your link profile.

I wish you good luck for your website!

Google don't encourage using the Disavow tool. https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-disavow-tool/289871/#close

I've noticed tools like SEMrush keep alerting users that they have a lot of 'toxic' links but you shouldn't just go and blanket disavow a whole bunch of these links just because a tool said so. Google knows which are the spammy links.
