    So my site has 1,300 backlinks on yahoo (link:http://www.domain.com). I did that similar thing but for his site, and he has 127,356 links on yahoo. How the hell is this possible? Why isn't he sandboxed? Obviously im trying to increase Google page rank but shit like this makes me wonder.

    Check your competitor's domain age.

    Yeah, I agree. Check out what the guy is doing that you aren't. If the links are backlinks due to legitimate posts, then you need to study the process and work it for yourself, as he is doing something either very legit or just hasn't been sandboxed yet for something underhanded.

    Review his site and run tests to see what he is doing that you can repeat if it is on the level.

    Your competitor has done an outstanding job of building backlinks and dominating his niche,
    and the only thing you can wonder is.. why isn't he sandboxed?

    How about..what types of backlinks is he building?

    ..what kinds of programs is he using?

    ..what is he doing that you're not?

    I'm new on the bus, but thanks for pointing this out. Maybe I should look into buying domains on godaddy, or flippa with some age...

    The actual age of the domain is not really relevant, so buying just a domain and putting new content
    on it most likely won't help you at all. Google measures "age" by how old the actual content on your
    site is, not just when it was registered..

    Spend some time researching link building automation tools on BHW if you want to up your game against them.
