    This is not my first time that my sites get sandboxed but this time I thought it wouldn't happen, I have reached the almost the first page of google for pretty competitive keywords and been only building profile links do my web2.0 sites and ofcoarse doing a bit of everything, link pyramids, linkwheels etc.. but still got sandboxed could this be the reason because I'm blasting my web2.0 with xrumer doing about 2,500 links to like 4-6 wheels of around 10 site on each? Help me out here, it stressing me out big time, I have spend months on promoting my site. Thank you!

    I was thinking today that after spamming your site across the entire Internet eventually some crazy site owner will report you to Google and you will receive a penalty. So I'm not sure if it's the number of backlinks we get that sandbox us or a few Google reports from site owners that we pissed off. Now if it's a sandbox you should keep publishing unique content and build quality backlinks only. If it's a penalty you can just wait for it to expire in 3-6-9-12 months.

    The term sandboxed gets thrown around waaaay too much. How do you know you were sandboxed and not just doing a google dance? If you're blasting your site with links you will see that you bounce in and out of SERPs. Not showing up for a few days does not mean that you have been sandboxed.

    Is your site still indexed? Do a search site:domain.com and see. If it is then see if you can find where you're at in the SERPs for your keywords. I've blasted sites before and have only had problems with one site that ended up in the supplemental index but chances are it could have been from trademark infringement issues.

    Bouncing around in rankings does not equal sandboxed.

    I don't think TM issues would put you in supplemental.
