any help would be appreciated! thanks so much,
Confront the company, and let them know that you are aware that these pages can be harmful to your website's standings in the search engines. Either give them a chance to do the job the right way, or get the money back that you paid for the SEO work.
It is work like this that gives SEO a bad reputation among some crowds
i actually spoke with their tech guy before we signed up with them and asked if their promo in any way involved spamming, he told me that because they don't submit these pages to search engines and instead wait for crawlers to index them - it's not considered spamming
Nothing personal, but I guess, that company needs to sharpen their terminology and needs to understand the actual meaning of spam or at least make one that will be beneficial for their clients.
hwy2hel I would highly recommend you to make sure that the money you have paid better come back to you. Because good search engine positioning is not a child’s play and in my *personal* opinion, the company who is optimizing your web site with nothing but crap is not qualified to be called SEO.
Talking about spamming – one don’t have to submit a site to search engines to be considered a spammer. Say John Doe makes 100 pages with the intentions of trapping spiders, and inter link them and waits for the spider to come and index them – Do you think he is a spammer – off course he is. Lets say Mr. X makes gets 10 domains and make 100% [or even 90% or 80%] mirror sites – He is also a spammer.
In above examples John Doe and Mr. X might not call themselves a spammer, but who is suppose to decide the definition of spam here? A good SEO is the one who understand how *each and every* [or at least try to do his best – because changes in SE’s are frequent and one needs to keep updated] search engines and directory works or at least in the worst case employ only ethical techniques on their clients web site instead of questionable tricks that will/can not only get your site out of the ranking game, but it will take few months [in a good case, if your site is not that popular – than it can take even longer] to recover.

we have not had our customers get bumped off of the engines due to our pages.
Well for this particual point, I will have to agree the SEO company that hwy2hel is using.
It is not the pages that their customers get bumped off the engines - it is their knowledge. Half knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge.
I wonder why they don't choose to use them!
Seriously, I think that you need to check the contract that you signed with them, and what it specified they would do for you. If you are unhappy with what they are doing, you can tell them to stop it and try something else, or you can take your business elsewhere as long as there aren't legal issues involved.
The answer that you were given is not a good one at all, and if I were you, I would not accept it.
I'm not sure whether there is a place on the net where you can register notorious would-be SEO companies using spamming techniques. If there is, that's the place for them.
wants to see the immediate results that the company has promised
... is the problem, but he'll only learn of this after the fact, after his money is gone and unlikely returned, and after the potential of his site being categorically removed from search engines because it personifies garbage.
What you have described above is not only spam but a "SCAM" as well.
Bottom line... an after the fact, "I told you so" isn't going to help your boss's web site to get back to where it was before this company started (let alone good positioning and qualified traffic).
my boss still decided to go with the company. he stated that he doesn't really care about the unethical part of it and wants to see the immidate results that the company has promissed
oh dear. i hope the contract has a clause where the SEO company are liable for all losses incurred as a result of the site's being removed from search engines for spam .....
now might be a good time to start work on a new site to replace the one that's about to get booted anytime soon ....
