    No, you won't. They will actually leak the juice out and associate your website with "bad" sites.

    Delete them.

    I agree with above, it also probably hurting your SERP because google thinks your site is a junk site

    Not only that (what above posters just said), any readers of your site will be instantly turned off from your content by seeing the sheer amount of spam crap under your posts. You will lose traffic, link juice, PR, and authority... there's nothing to gain by making your blog an auto approve spam piece of junk.

    The social signals driven into your site when legitimate people comment can be valuable. Like, lots of activity showing up, with people to/from Facebook, may signal that your content is worth a discussion.

    But otherwise, as far as links and traditional SEO go, nope, the comments can only hurt you.

    Change your settings so you have to approve comments first. Install akismet.

    It's all spam and not good for your business. I advice you dedicate the next couple of weeks to cleaning up the spammy comment.

    You'll get some juice if the links are relevant, so the owner will visit your site. But not for spammy links.
