    Hey Im new to seo and IM in general and have been looking into these programs that get you tons of backlinks. They seem too good to be true are there any drawbacks to using them?

    You don't want to direct those types of spammy backlinks directly to your money site. A site that predominantly is getting low quality backlinks is going to get hammered by Google's algorithm and will have a hard time (if not impossible) ranking for the keywords you're looking for. This is why people use tiers, where only the highest quality sites link directly to the site you're trying to rank, and each successive tier becomes lower and lower quality. Those backlink spammers might function nicely as a tier 3, but not a tier 1.

    I wouldn't use them. Google has been changing a lot of things recently and spammy backlinks can hurt you more than they can help. If it was my site, I would rather completely ignore SEO than have bad backlinks pointed at my site. Remember, those backlink cleanup services are there for a reason!

    I'm definitely not going to say all spammy backlinks hurt, but it's good to be on the safe side ;)

    it's not that definitely harmful, and it's not that definitely effective, for the best result, try and experience it yourself

    cheers
