  3. Relevance with the content
  4. Suspicious embedding of link in keyword anchor-text

  6.  Disjunct from meaningful content
  7. Participating in link schemes

Hence, thoroughly analyze your link building strategy and make sure these does not have any of the above mentioned features. Write quality content, post it on relevant sites, build links on high authority domains and win the manual link building race.
