    Ordered a Blog Comment package on another forum for one of my sites, and not sure what to do about this.. I did this for one of my legit sites, mostly white/grey-hat work. Should I remove these (going to be impossible) or just let it go and hope for the best, or am I just overacting?

    - Most Sites Not US and Some comments are not in English.
    - The OBL is high, tons of outbound links on those blogs, literally SPAM sites now.
    - Comments Spun, not unique some of them are repeated.
    - PR 2-6 so that's the only decent part of it.

    They made 45 of these, worried this will negatively affect my site now..
    Wasn't expecting the quality to be this poor, reviews indicated otherwise.

    I don't think I would be too worried about 30 links. If they are on spam blogs with huge obls they will just get ignored not penalised.

    Made similar mistakes years ago, don't go purchasing random blog comments for a site you are trying to keep grey.

    I recommend buying a copy of gsa ser if you want to do some decent blog commenting yourself.

    Thanks! Yeah this was a horrible mistake trying to outsource these, just had too much I needed done for the moment. Won't ever be doing that again.. Also the real # was 45 total, they threw in bonus links unfortunately..

    This is why you don't blast your main / money site. Let's assume that this did have a significant negative impact on your rankings; If you had that package linking to one of your tier 1 links (which you SHOULD have control of) you would simply need to alter the links in tier one. Regardless; you said it was only about 30 links, which isn't that big of a deal. Had you bought one of those 10,000 backlink packages, then you'd be in some trouble :)

    Lol this is horrible advice. Honestly dude I would start a new website. Those links are going to kill you. No joke. The whole devalued myth was proved on P - Day (Penguin).

    45 Bad Links and you say I should start a new site? Seriously... I could see this being the case for sites with thousands of bad links or hundreds but not ~50. I've spent 4 years on this site, not going to just start over, going to just build more quality links to try to cover those up and keep working on the site, adding content, etc. I mean if this was the case I'd order this tiny package for every single one of my competitors and do that..

    What did you expect from a blog comment service? I recommend getting rid of them if you can, but that's unlikely.

    Just focus on higher quality linkbuilding from here on out...You typically get what you pay for

    Not only would I get rid of the website I would sell the domain immediately to wandering minstrels and torch the very servers it resided on!

    Just kidding but I would add some quality links and content to appease the Panda.

    For the price expected something decent, but it seems that one provider has no value for quality... $30/30 close to $1 per comment, they did 15 extra since it was my first order?.. Wish they didn't. Anyways, it's incredible to see how someone can be a business person, yet don't treat their customer sites like they would their own business. Guess I shouldn't be trusting of reviews anymore, it's just how the game works.. Getting rid of them prob won't work, since the sites have been ignored for that long. Oh well, going to do just that, build more quality links and add a ton of great content.
