    Makes sense. It would be more reasonable to tune out irrelevant backlinks than relevant ones.

    Very interesting. That’s why it’s still wise to practice good backlink strategies like guest posting and blog commenting, but the fact that spammy links still account for the majority of this is still bothersome.

    There’s got to be a way they can filter it all out eventually.

    Yes, I did. And “backlink relevance” clearly includes backlink topic relevance. (Google has come a long way since PageRank was introduced in the late 1990s.)
