Can spam backlinks harm your rankings

It is a big issue from past some years that do spam / negative backlinks harm your site in search engine rankings.
about 4-5 years ago google had confirmed that

Inbound links can’t harm your ranking because competitors would be able to harm your site by spamming thousand of low quality links.

However eecently Matt Cutts announced a change in Google’s policy.

The Google statement changed from:

There is nothing a competitor can do to harm your rankings
                                        to
There is almost nothing a competitor can do to harm your rankings.


It is very obvious that your competitor can blast huge number of spam backlinks to your site using black hat seo tools.
So do you think spam backlinks can really harm your site seaarch engine rankings?
If we consider googles statement then we can easily come to conclusion that,

Neighter spam backlinks harm your site nor they boost your site in SERP's, they are just ignored by google.

However this theory is not applicable every where, Lets see how

Effect of spam backlinks on old trusted site


Some SEO experts says that google compares spam backlinks with existing authority quality links of a site. If any site have very strong and consistent backlinks in past then google will simply ignore the blast of spammy links bombarded on that site.


Effect of spam backlinks on new site


offcourse google will penalise a new site for spam backlinks as it is obvious that no one will going to harm a site that itself is struggling to bubble up on first few pages of google search results.

How to prevent site from spam attack by competitor


To prevent your site from getting penalised by google for spam attack by your competitor you only need to get some authority high quality links from niche sites. This can be done by getting some permanant backlinks from reputed niche sites through guest posting. Also there are many gov and edu. sites/forums that allows registration and dofollow backlinks through profile pages, grab them they will help you in long run.

How this algorithm building Market Monopolies


Some big fishes that are having bunch quality websites are free to spam as google dont hunts out big fishes. These Market Monopolies are hunting small websites and pushing them dipper and dipper in serps.

Yes, spam kills blogs, but its not near as bad as it is for an EDU blog like this one http://blogs.southwesterncc.edu/nlile7634/spam-blog-comments/
Those get torn into because of the EDU.
