    What do you mean by "bad links"?

    External links that don't point to a valid page?
    A link from a website that harms your reputation?
    Links with inappropriate anchor text?

    You can also use Ahrefs and there are a lot of instruments, which helps you to find all references that are on the Internet about your site.

    Google doesn't take this into account anymore as people started engaging into negative seo. Meaning you create ad links to competitor site and they get penalized for it.
    Bad links are however obviously from sites that don't generate any traffic and have poor content, content that is misaligned with your website. Pages or site that have a ton of outgoing links to other websites like link farms.

    I think the best answer to your question is this what is a good link. One that irrespective of the "link juice it gives" provides relevant and steady traffic to your website. I mean in the end that all you want right.

    Those are links that are of low quality. That means they are placed on websites where is a lot of outbound links or they are placed on websites where no natural content exists.

    Generally, links from foreign language sites in my opinion are bad

    Bad links directly refer to websites with poor quality content, and High Spam Scores. Spam Scores is a metric used by Moz, it helps identify websites that practice spam, and having your website link placed on these high-spam score sites will hurt your organic rankings. I believe you can download an extension on Moz, and easily identify these types of sites.

    True @thepepy. Spam score tools from Moz and semrush are good at finding such metrics. Apart from the tools, you can manually avoid links from,
    Foreign sites

    Irrelevant Anchor texts

    Spammy blogs and articles

    Broken Links to sites
