    Hi,

    so this week, all week I've been advertising like mad this is what I've done

    200 pr2-6 dirs
    385k profile submissions (xrumer)
    15k forum threads (xrumer).
    press release to 125 websites
    advertised on 50+ forums
    2000 dirs submit from pr0-pr8
    scrapebox blog comments ~ 40k links

    Is this bad for my buisness? Or should I have done more?

    Thanks

    As with everything, it depends. If it was a new site, you sure will have sandboxed it. If it was a purely whiteknight-hat 10yr old authority site, like wikipedia, you will get away with it. Or was that even for just one site? Or your network of domains? I did not tell the interesting facts.

    The domain: nearly 5 months old.

    However, the domain has had a lot of xrumer blasts done to it.

    I wouldn't consider 5 months being "New" Though, I have 2 years on my domain.

    I've just checked what traffic I got yesterday and this morning from all these blasts.. and well... I got 598+ uv visitors...

    Also now, have just ordered a 1 million xrumer blast to bring traffic up. Want to go <100k for alenxa.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    5 months is pretty new for all that activity. I would hold off on the 1 million blast myself unless your site has a lot of pages that you are linking to in your blast.

    Hmm.

    I guess so, but from 3 months in, we have been using blackhat methods to gain good rankings.
