First, you can send an email to the site owners! If they don't remove links lastly you can upload the disavow file.

And sometimes such links are generated automatically, (not done by competitors) so in that case we are helpless. we just have to monitor links in intervals and deal with them!

Brand yourself across the top DA social sites making sure your URL has your main keyword or brand name. Link to your other social accounts when available.

You no doubt don't ever have to really worry about this if you do this properly. There are 100s of sites out there. I have a giant list but it's not available for the public.. just saying it's easy to find.

A lot of sites will automatically get picked up through many different means, doesn't mean it's spammy links. Just naturally created by being online and doing a bit of marketing.

Checking link audits regularly are good practice for any company, but if you're ever the victim of a negative SEO attack, they can save you. The best way of detecting suspicious behavior before it spirals out of control is to track the growth of your link profile. Also, keep any eye out on your site speed. Site speed is a key ranking factor. If your website is becoming sluggish and you have no idea why you should use crawling software to look for anything suspicious.
