    I read somewhere on these forums that articles on google don't get sandboxed, is this true?

    If this is the case I think I might switch to blackhat.

    Not sure what the last part of your post means, but it would be very hard for Google to sandbox an article, web 2.0 property, video site, etc because these types of sites are constantly getting a high amounts of backlinks daily.

    I have a ezine article which was ranking for very competitive keyword... It ranked no 1 for around 10+ months got more then 300k visitors then suddenly it drops out and now on 5th page. I tried every thing but it keeps moving from 4-6 pages in google... Now it started ranking for different keyword and got 3rd rank... Not that much visitor but OK.

    It got 12k backlinks out of that 10k+ is on my primary keyword... 2k on my new keyphrase or may be even less...

    So in my opinion articles can be sanbox or filter out but it happens rarely not frequent as normal sites... If you are careful in your approach you can go long time...

    Yukinari by blackhat OP wants to promote that article using BH tools...and it's certainly possible with out risking your site... Don't put all your articles in one account or use normal white hat account for it... Keep different site, server or other usual things which you take care when ever you start a new BH project..

    Using multiple accounts, proxies, servers, etc is standard practice for any B-Hatter or at least it should be.

    I have blasted hundreds and thousands of backlinks via bookmarks and spun-content etc at my articles on article directories and web 2.0 sites, at my videos, etc without any negative effect whatsoever.

    Of course, practicing the standards I talked about above.

    The results I get are almost always what I want from a quick-hit style promotion like this - fast rankings on multiple pages of Google for my KW and fast cash.

    Just because your article got moved does not mean it got sandboxed. In fact, what you are describing sounds like the exact opposite of what the sandbox traditionally is.

    It sounds like your article got moved probably from new content being promoted on the same KWs and market you targeted. Any EZA and other article for that matter is pretty easy to move off their rankings.
