It looks like Google is taking a jab now at third-party link audit tools now. John Mueller from Google said on Twitter that if a random tool can figure out if a link is a bad link, then Google’s own algorithms can probably detect these bad links and thus ignore them without you having to disavow them.
John said on Twitter “ultimately, if some random tool can tell you which ones to disavow, they’re probably already being ignored.”
Here are the tweets:
Yeah, most sites don't need to do anything like this. Ultimately, if some random tool can tell you which ones to disavow, they're probably already being ignored.

I mean – Google is all for third party tools but Google, as I said numerous times, doesn’t want SEOs to spend so much time focusing on links. They rather they spend the time focusing on useful content for the web site and the readers of that site.
