Can I sandbox this site or will it just become stronger?

    So theres a real life competitor of mine who is sitting number one for a local term simply because he has an exact match domain and a load of shitty copy and paste wordpress sites hes charged people $500 for etc linking to it.

    Anyway his actual site is poorly seod and so are the sites linking to him and theyre simply hosted in a folder on his main site (so they will have little value in terms of juice).

    Anyway since the site is like 6 years old and has a pr of 3 would bombing it with scrapebox comments sandbox it or just make it stronger? the keyword isnt something i need but its an extra I guess to what the main comeptition keyword is that im currently number one for .

    Thanks for any advice.

    I would think it would make him stronger. I would concentrate more on getting high quality backlinks and take him down. Try and gather all the backlinks he has, plus add some more of your own. Remember quality over quantity.

    it definitely depends on what kind of backlinks and what kind of amount

    >> BUT <<

    it's not very nice, cuz with the right strategy you can sandbox (at least for a while) nearly every page, but you shouldn't do this.

    If we all start to fight against each other by using this kind of techniques, we'll lose the focus on our main business.

    Well we have had some IRL conflicts over stuff as well... and I cant duplicate his backlinks as theyre TLDs with wordpress sites for people hes made sites for.

    Would say spamming 300k comments with one word and the keyword im chasing as the backlink work? I think it would personally.

    6y with pr3?

    depends on the content on that site

    But I would guess not, and if u simple spam around you will increase his strength. Even if he deranks for a while, he will come back much stronger as his domain authority is also there.

    So, even if it's personal (thought about it also once in the past) but don't do it, if you leave a single footprint you'll start a war between you and him, which is kinda useless.

    i was intending to use scrapebox also @ starting a 'war' that wouldnt happen as hes incapable and doesnt know about scrapebox or anything else of the sort. He thinks seo is simply putting all ur keywords in your title tag. If he found out it was me id get my head kicked in.

    Do not risk it, I think this would make him stronger. Such an old site.

    Well he's still sitting at number 1 with a shitty site with crap copy and only an exact match domain. Doesn't say much about you if you can't get above him. :D

    Why don't you spend your energy on building links and content to your own site rather than tyring to destroy others.

    If you do decide to do this, don't use regular words as anchors. Use the worst and most offensive swear words you can.

    Not that I am condoning this behavior, just saying if your gonna do it, do it right..

    Why waste time and energy trying to hurt a competitor when you could spend that time improving your site?

    It would be nice if you blast him, trying to bring him down, and he'll end up stronger than ever. LOL!

    Come on, man. SEO is not about bringing something down. It's about bringing yourself up.

    It would make him stronger. You cannot harm others by using blackhat or the whole website world would be messed up as people would simply blast down their competitors instead of working on their own.

    Try to make backlinks of that site in Google Banned Sites. That will hurt its ranking i think. Havn't tried but i thought so.
