What types of links are considered bad by Google?

Due to the latest Panda release and the numerous Panda updates throughout the year, websites linking to you have been treated very sensible, in terms of quality and relevancy. Hence, if you saw a sudden drop in rankings for a core keyword, your bad link profile might be the problem. Directories, paid links, blog comments, irrelevant sites, or exact match anchor texts won’t give you a competitive edge against your competitors on the search results page, because Google sees those links as not qualitative enough.
