    Never done this before, just wanted to play around with it and i had some money for it not expecting much.

    I used ahrefs and the anchor tag for it is pretty good, there's like 2% spammy backlinks which i dont think is that bad. I just set up some redirects (302) with a wordpress plugin for the most popular pages that ahrefs noted, but there are a lot more links to the site that exist but are not popular so I didn't touch them.

    Then I set up a post linking to my test site, original article, and tried to crawl that new page with google webmaster tool.

    I got this error: Temporarily unreachable

    Where should I go from here? I was going to try an indexing service...is this google crawler error a major error I have to fix, and does anyone have experience with it?

    I tested the domain with feedthebot.com/tools/ and it's working there

    You can try it again after a while, google webmasters does sometimes give that error.

    OP use 301 redirects for your old links not 302

    Ok, contacted hosting and they said all crawlers should be able to crawl my website, but google still can't. Penalized website?

    Ok, just fixed.
