To answer this, you have to know something of the mechanics behind how all of this works. Every time a link is discovered, it is entered into a link table within he index.

It makes sense to split your question up in two parts, each addressed separately. Can backlinks to robots.txt blocked pages boost domain's ranking? No, these backlinks shouldn't be affecting your domain's authority and thus rankings if they are pointed to pages which are blocked using robots.txt.

Have you received any message from Google in your Search Console (Webmaster Tools) notifying of a Manual Review penalty? Have you checked these domains and confirmed if your link is an open link (not nofollowed) or a nofollowed link? If the links are not nofollow'ed then there is a fair chance of them being the culprit and it's better to get rid of them or ...

From experience I can tell you it will skew your clientele toward more adult sites and away from non-adult sites. This is a natural result. Adult site owners are looking for friendly site developers while companies will shy away from a developer that does adult sites. That is a given.

All links have some value even minute amounts including nofollow links. However, if the links come from a site/page that is fully egregious, then you may want to consider disavowing them.

Links are links - there isn't a penalty for an adult site vs a non-adult site. I've even had hosted pages on our company site that linked back and forth to swinger sites with no repercussions or noticeable differences to other more mainstream events. The danger comes from what context the link is in. Because the content of these sites is clearly ...

You can use Google disavow tool to ban these sites. After submitting the sites in disavow tool, Google will not consider these links as backlinks. This will avoid any penalty from ...

This sounds like a common misconception and understanding of linkage on the web and a typical view of many that are thinking about this all wrong... The average natural website's link profile will be made up of a higher percentage of nofollow links than followable links. This is common and to be expected. It isn't always the case though and some websites ...
