Incoming Links, good and not so good

Desirable links to have coming into your website:
1. Blogrolls - editorially given, but not fantastic value
2. Authority sites: examples and (real estate)
4. Librarians directory
5. anything editorially given inside the page - in the content

Questionable incoming links

1. Comment spam - obviously put up to get a linkback
2. Forum signatures
3. Social media profiles - tons of profiles probably spammy
4. websites you own - if you link to your own sites the search engines could penalize
5. reciprocal links - you get offers for these often - link trading pages
6. Squidoo - despite the fanfare I am not sure these work well for you
