    Well it happened again like always when I setup a blog: sandboxed! I also noticed that after sandboxed my rankings dropped from position 45 to 69. Must be the effect of sandbox?

    Also, all my backlinks dropped. I had around 80 of them, now when I do "mysite.com" it only shows 3...

    I hope I get my rankings and backlinks back when I get out of the sandbox..

    I just submitted it to dozens of social bookmarking sites (by hand) and did several blog comments (with Wordpress Comment Spammer) and so on. Hmm... now that I think of it, that must be the case.. too much backlinks in a short time ?

    social bookmarking sites tend to get sites sandboxed/banned. I had a site doing damn well... i used bookmarking demon on it and the next day my site was gone.
    Now i only use 2 social bookmarking sites.

    Keep working on it with new content. Ping+ping and ping it. Improve your seo onsite. and don't get more than 2 backlinks each day.

    You have to spread out your backlinking campaigns and make sure you use different accounts and different proxies.

    This will help a lot.
