    So I made a new site trying to rank for a medium competition keyword and after some SEO work it was ranked at 159 (pretty bad, and under stuff way less quality). I started building more backlinks (built a little less than 50k) and blasted the shit out of my proprieties. It's now not even in the top 500. I'm really not sure what to do, the first keyword I tried for it took me 2 weeks to rank number 1. I've been at this for over a month.

    You may have been blasting to much to fast if it only took you 2 weeks to rank number one thats way to quick normally. Is your site still indexed?

    give it 4 to 5 days it will be back with better SERPs but do not stop keep getting quality backlinks.

    Oh, I did stop for about a week but I'll start blasting my proprieties again. I need some new AA lists though.

    Sounds like your site is sandboxed. You should be able to see your site if you make a: site:yourdomain.com

    You need to use other link sources than SB and create new content as well.
