I have discovered some high spammy website which MOZ claimed to be a high spammy website linked to my website. Is it ok to Disavow those link in google? I don't know which one really deserved to Disavow! Is it good to Disavow all website which has a spam score of more than 40%?

Please see this two example which was linked to my website:

<snip> ( Spam scored according to MOZ 86%)
<snip> (Spam scored according to MOZ 65%)

Please suggest me something!

Kind Regards,

MOZ is not Google.
MOZ scores are totally separate from Google scores.
Do not blindly follow MOZ data.

In general, focus more on building good links & waste less time worrying about disavowing suspicious links that most of the time are ignored by Google

I'll assist by responding that many influencers and those experts of us would recommend that the disavow tool should typically never be used unless there is a manual penalty. There are a few very very rare instances where using the disavow tool could be beneficial but as a general rule just don't use it.

Thank you for the quick reply. Will try not to bother any more. I am a little bit curious because my organic traffic drops almost 40% since march 2019

most of the links are coming from some random website like website ranking.info etc.
