Here I am sharing the whole process of fighting against spam backlinks. Perform the following three simple steps:

  • Detect all of the spam backlinks your website has: The best way to find toxic backlinks is to review them manually. You can use specialized SEO tools. Tools such as Ahrefs, SEMrush, Moz, or Majestic are handy for a regular checkup on your website’s health. And there’s no better way to fight spam backlinks.
  • Compile a list of all toxic domains (in .txt format): Create a .txt file so that you can throw each suspicious link that you find into it. When all is said and done, you’ll send this file to Google.
  • Disavow them from Google: At this point, we’re in a pretty good place. You have the list of dangerous backlinks/domains in your hand. What’s left is to tell Google you don’t want those toxic backlinks and disavow them from Google Search Console (that’s where that .txt file you’ve been creating takes the stage). With the help of SEO tools, you can automatically create a disavow file in .txt format. All you need to do is mark suspicious domains and export the list from the dashboard. There’s usually a separate button for that. To get this started, you will need to log in to the Google account associated with your domain and go to the Disavow Tool. Its interface is as simple as it gets, just upload your disavow file and click on the button. Also, remember that you can disavow each backlink separately or the entire linking domain as you prefer.
So, in your case, you can disavow entire linking domains that are building spammy links automatically.

Spammy backlinks are usually more annoying than hurtful, but there’s a real possibility they could destroy your website’s reputation in Google. That’s why it’s important never to give them a chance to do that.

Thank you for the reply. I will follow these guidelines. Hope it gets better.

The most effective way to get rid of unwanted backlinks is to analyze them manually or by using SEO tools such as Ahrefs. After listing down the spam links, you can remove them yourself. However, with numerous links, it is better to let Google do the cleaning, by disavowing them in Google Search Console.
