hmmm.. My thinking is very old school. You must be able to see your link on the page of the domain that is linking to your site. If you can't find the page, it's gone. (not sure why google still counts it though in WMT).
Also, if their domain links out to payday loans, that can't be good unless that is your niche.
Our company has 287 domains that link to us. according to the report 9 are live. those 9 are also in the same niche. It was the bitterest pill to swallow.
We are just gonna go get new domains that are in our niche and get links. The others we will disavow more than likely beginning early winter.
