Is it bad having links from a penalized site?

Is it bad having links from a site that seems penalized?

I mean seems because, I do in Google:
domainsite.com widget site and in top result appears other sites that refer this one but not the site domainsite.com

I ask this, because I see top 10 sites that have links from sites that seems penalized... perhaps the % of penalized sites for those sites is low?

How did you find that site and why do you want a link from them?

If you found the site through a search engine and it has reasonable position in the serps then it probably does not have a penalty.

If you see top 10 sites that all or most have links from sites that seem penalized, then your definition/determination of penalized might need to be refined.

It isn't probable that a link from one penalized site would hurt you, it might not help, but it shouldn't harm you. If the majority of your links were from sites that had different types of penalties, then you might have a problem.

I found them looking which sites links to my competition.

To know if a site is penalized we can do this?

Search in google for the domainsite.com + main keyword of that site.


If the site does not appears in top result but appears other sites that refer this domainsite.com
is because domainsite.com is penalized?

If you search just for "example.com", do you find the site?
If you search just for "keyword", do you find the site?

Combining the site name and a possible keyword/phrase in a search can provide unpredictable results. If you can find the site with either of those two methods, then you'd want to look at what kind of link you might get and the potential value of that link.

If you search just for "example.com", do you find the site?

Yes I found it, so we know that the site is not banned.

If you search just for "keyword", do you find the site?

No

Combining both I cant find it.

What I want to know and share here, how to know if a site is penalized or not by google so we can avoid them. Avoid for asking a link, asking to delete the link to your site if they are linking you or use the disavow tool.

A person can spend a lot of time developing ways to determine a link isn't worth pursuing.
Or, a person can find relevant links and realize some of those links might not be as valuable as others.

I tend to work relevance, and I don't worry about the scrapers/mashers that link to me, other than recently uploading a disavow file to see what the result might be.

Ok for the answers...

but my main question to share is:

How to know if a site is bad or not?

To avoid asking a link, to delete the link or use the disavow tool.

Is correct to do this:

Search for:

domainsite.com widget keyword site and in top result appears other sites that refer this one but not the site domainsite.com

Is because the site is penalized or has bad level?

There is no such thing as a bad site.
There are sites where you probably don't want a link from. Those are obvious.

If a site is relevant to your site topic and it doesn't link out to a bunch of low quality sites, then you don't have much to worry about.

There is no magic keyword search combination that will provide you with relevant, high quality sites to obtain links from.
