@TrainJun 11.2016 — First of all, backlinks to your domain or specific web pages are important. The more inbound links you have, the higher your overall Google Page Rank, right? Close, but not quite… Google, and other search engines that matter, reward quality over quantity. At one point, website owners and internet marketers would try to cheat the system by buying a large quantity of backlinks for a really cheap price. Some still do, even though it’s been proven that websites are penalized by Google for doing that.

@brad_jonesJun 12.2016 — Echo: Too many low quality backlinks is definitely bad.

The search engines algorithms and crawls are getting smarter. It would not surprise me if there was a check that would flag a site if it suddenly received a large quantity of backlinks that are low quality (the kind you get from spamming).

@CarolineMurphyJun 13.2016 — Creating bulk backlinks can be a problem. Google is no longer concerned about how many backlinks you have. It’s difficult to say this to some SEOs because they cannot fathom that Google would make such a drastic change. However, Google wants to see the quality, not quantity and if there are too many links built in an unnatural way Google will catch you and penalize your site.

No it's not. Getting as many backlinks as possible is necessary to promote your website. However, please be cautious to use manual methods only in doing white hat SEO and make sure the links came from a high authority site.

@jasonhalleJul 07.2016 — Too many backlinks are only problematic when they are coming from the website which is penalized by Google or all backlinks are from Dofollow, which is created in the short span of time.

Always maintain the ratio of no follow and do follow links. Try to get backlinks from website which having good reputation and Domain Authority.

Thanks

Too many backlinks can be a problem. Google is no longer concerned about how many backlinks you have. It’s difficult to explain this to some SEOs because they cannot fathom that Google would make such a drastic change. However, through our research we have discovered that Google wants to see quality over quantity and if there are too many links built in an unnatural way Google will catch you and penalize your site. Our team proved this in late 2013 with our research.
