Do you disavow Folkd.com?

I'm going through a new clients backlink profile, and they have a decent amount of spam links. I see Moz gives Folkd.com 61% spam score.

Also, it's linked to the site using keyword text (not branded or url), to an off page that no longer exists.

Thoughts... is this a spam directory, or good link? It has a high domain authority (63 DA)

Thanks

    I don't think this would hurt your SEO. Folkd.com has good domain authority, so It shouldn't make that big difference I think. Looks some other spammy backlinks to remove. That's what I would do.

    Moz spam score will not hamper your SEO ranking however Folkd.com has good DA. But I will suggest you not to create backlinks from spammy websites. If the link is "No-follow" then its fine.

    Moz metrics are completely worthless. I hope you are not paying for that account.

    Folkd is a social bookmarking site that has zero influence on rankings. Google knows that anyone can place links there to their own site so all links from it are devalued.

    It's a link that is being completely ignored by Google. Remove it, disavow it or ignore it. It's not going to matter one way or the other.

      Yes, it wont make any difference but i don't think, there is any problem to use it as a social bookmarking site.
