    A. They probably won't harm you site. Google seems more likely to ignore backlinks that they don't like than to penalize for them, especially if you have other quality links.

    B. Depends on the type of link. If you're getting custom articles written from scratch with a relevant link in the article, then they're probably great links. It's more likely that they're something like comments on other people's blog posts on the site. Things like the number of other outbound links (OBL) on the page can also be understood by Google et. al., so if all your links are from pages with like 300 other comments it can end up being a problem. Or if they end up manually reviewed and the comments links are clearly spam to a human, etc.

    Also Fiverr Gigs aren't inherently crap, just a lot of them are. That tends to be the case when:
    • A website is centered around being low cost ($5 gigs)
    • It's very easy to create new/multiple accounts if you are being sleazy
    • It's very easy to buy fake reviews
    Definitely some good gigs though so the links could even be helpful / not harmful. It really depends on the git.

    I assume these are links from profiles (website field)?

    I doubt they are indexed (but will be if you are active) but regardless, they aren't exactly that helpful nor are they harmful.
