    I kinda wish I bought Scrapebox sooner but you know how it goes.I built 24,000 backlinks to my site,didn't get deindexed and just stopped and let it ride out.My serps barely moved between page 240 - 238 with barely any traffic.I even got higher PR links from aged domains.I worked non stop for 3 months to get kicked in the face by google.I guess google kinda forgets who keeps them going...us the users....Just had to vent that....my site only gets 1 hit a day now and still carrying 17,000 backlinks.

    Moral of the story: Don't blast 24k backlinks to your site.

    Try taking off all your affiliate\monetising links,you have nothing to lose(you can add them when decent traffic comes).
    Seriously I think G is looking at monetisation with panda.

    I'm not a fan of pinging,I'll blast and let the links be found on their own accord.One blast can easily do 2-3 months and the links shows up steady not a mass amount at once.

    Anyway good luck buddy.

    Something is really wrong with this picture! Did you do it all at once? Even if you dripped it you should get quite pronounced movement either way! I usually get some dance after just a fairly small "blast" and it takes 1-2 days to see the results.

    It's either you don't clear your cache or use extremely crappy backlinks (which is highly unlikely). Sounds puzzling to me!

    i built the links in 8 months.....took my time and switched it up using scrapebox and manually posting to better sites.....I didn't get a damn thing out of it and I have a good domain too and my wordpress blog has a ton of unique content.."spun content"

    hmm... blasting links and using loads of spun content... and you wondering why your not ranking... seriously?

    A) Try unique content
    B) Switch up your backlink strategy. If after 8 months you haven't realized that blasting your site doesn't work... *gasp*

    That's really strange! I have an old website where I was on the first page for many keywords and I still could get some movement with SB blasts. With such an amount of backlinks there should be some movement. But come to think of it - I did some blasting for somebody here and the page didn't move, either...

    Get a gig on Fiver and do a pyramid of high PR web2 and blast those suckers - if that won't move it - you need a stick of dynamite!

    Edit: OK, I've seen that g doesn't like a lot of affiliate offers on the page, I've had one of my pages in a health niche demoted after manual review...I guess some sort of link cloaking might help if that's the case with your site.

    Are you sure its about the blasting?

    I have been doing small blasts everyday and I find them working great. My 2 sites using this strategy jumped from page xxx to page 10 then to page 4. I can forsee them getting to page 1 in a months time.

    Could it be the on-site seo?

    Ok so what kind of content do you have on your website??

    And what about when it comes to making money with it, are you linking to lots of STRAIGHT affiliate links, or are you making your affiliate links go through some kind of redirect like mydomain.com/offer-here.php?

    These kinds of things I don't see being talked about, and I think its whats really making the difference today post panda. I haven't tested myself, but either way, putting straight aff links or redirects google will still see your linking to an aff offer....

    Unique copyscape passed content like "how to prevent hair loss', etc and no affiliate links..not even adsense on the pages at the moment. looking like a very typical micro niche site.. :)

    Interesting thought that Panda doesn't like (a ton of) money links. Makes sense though. Of course, I've heard that google does have some sort of ad service that feeds money links to web sites... :)

    It's the "ton of," I know. Still, not to belabor this, but three ad unites on a page could add up to what, fifteen-ish ads? I wonder how much fifteen ads weigh.

    I'll be thinking of a way to test this over the next few days.

    As for cloaking, I wonder if G is suspicious of cloaked links too? I'm not familiar as I never use link cloaking, but there can't be many more reasons to cloak links than to hide the money trail.

    I typically link to another page with an onload redirect. Clunky maybe, but it's worked for me.

    This is about the keywords and competition in the niche, not about the backlinks or the contents originality. If I blast 17,000 backlinks for the keyword casino, I am still not expecting big results from that. Do you have Google analytics installed so you can see what positions you are ranking for certain keyword phrases?
