    I have a ecommerce website that i have built and put a lot of time and money into. i did just about everything right as far as on page SEO and layout of website and so on. almost all of my products rank well for the product name to this day but the keywords that i have content about do not. i believe the reason that the keywords i am targeting are not ranking well is due to the fact that after my website launched i was in the dark on how to get links and used a couple of spammy link services on BHW to try and build a link profile, which at the time i did not know that they were spammy links services. i know now i shouldn't have made this mistake. i am currently trying to figure out what my options are from this point to get rid of these 185-200 links.

    what are my options?
    should i see i can pay the services that put up the links to take them down?
    should i find a service that can help me clean this up? and if so who and who can i trust to get the job done?
    i know i can use google disavow tool, but i ve read to do this last and only if i can not get the links removed.

    this website is my baby right know and shes is sick and i need to cure her so any help out there that is trustworthy would be greatly appreciated.

    If they're comments on random blogs, you won't be able to delete them. Are you sure they had negative impact? How many backlinks does your website currently have?

    210 links total about 20 of them are blog comments the rest i got from services like SEOPEZ (link pyramid) and corkwheel service. as far as negative impact, i was just denied a service from a white blog post service because of the spammy links and google has been slowly de indexing my website, (atleast that what it looks like in webmaster tools) when i do a search on google site:website.com i still have a lot more pages then webmaster says i do.

    You mean Crork Service from Fiverr, never tried him again direct to your money site. I think you need to submit your site to Google Disavow when his process completed order some good quality blog post. BTW you may also use SEO services of Leith and t0mmy because they removed spammy backlinks first and then start and strong and quality link building campaign for your website with onpage optimization as well.

    You should definitely disavow but only after you've reached out to the sites asking for removal. IF you do get penalized, Google will want to see evidence that you communicated with the sites to try and get them removed before the disavow. Keep the emails saved so you can provide all correspondence in a Gdoc if necessary. Most of the time you can just pull WhoIs info for the domains and reach out to those email addresses....don't go crazy, just enough to show Google you put effort into it.
