    I'm considering using subb.seo's blog comment service from the marketplace. Everything looks really good, except the comments are removed 3-4 weeks after being posted. How exactly will this effect my rank and the juice I gain from these comments?

    The service has a lot of great reviews. I asked the owner if removing the comments with my links would affect my rank and I was told no. I'm not sure if I entirely believe that, can anyone please clarify this for me?

    I'm not sure if it's worth paying for something that will be removed within a month.

    removing the backlinkgs will have the opposite effect that those backlinks gave you in the first place

    OP, comment spam is done for c&b projects. Why would you want them to stay longer than 4 weeks anyway?

    You would be surprised.

    It most often takes a little bit of time to be negatively impacted from losing a link. You should test it, but when I did I found that if I posted a PBN link, let it index, then took it down I still received juice for a few days.

    Nothing substantial, but for Churn and Burn I can see it working. I would not use a service which takes down anything that quickly. Personally, unless it was an amazing deal, it is not worth it.

    Adding and removing links is a form of neg seo. Work it out.

    Once google crawled you site it would be cached most probably. Removing cached stuff is not a good thing for your site.

    Imagine your website is an egg. Throw that egg as hard as you can against the nearest wall.

    Paid PBN links are notorious for losing backlinks after the hosting runs out and the seller has his money. And yes, you lose what you gained when the link dies. It takes a while, at least 3-6 weeks but you lose credit essentially. The only way losing a link doesn't hurt you is is it was a crap link which was hurting you anyway.

    If the links are removed after four week then they won't offer you any benefit long-term. You might get a short-term burst, but it's not really worth it if you're looking for a long-term impact.

    You can remove junk backlinks, there is no effect on the site ranking. But, On the same time also build some quality backlinks (prevention is better than cure).

    Well, surely all such links will be taken as Broken Back-Links. May be they will be still available to appear as your current number of back links but after some days or time search engines will surely notice about those links and take them as broken back links which means you will have no more such positive effect left from the broken links!
