    This is an email I received in webmaster tools on a newer site of mine just over 6 months ago. The site was ranking well for very competitive keywords, however, the splash it made was a little too big too soon. All links to the site were purchased high quality links (mixed PR), tons of purchased articles etc. There was no scrapebox etc work done. After this email the site was not banned as a site:www search would retrieve it from the Google Index, however simply searching for the site name and even adding keywords on the home page no longer returned the site. I lost about 80% of my keywords and everything left was in position 40+. The site is currently just over 6 months into its penalty with no changes.

    Dear site owner or webmaster of [WebsiteNameWasHere],

    be careful when buying links, know the dangers as they do exist...

    if your not willing to risk it, then don't buy links...if your willing to risk it, then go for it...

    its pretty simple if you look at it like this...

    i think the reason behind it is not by buying link. It's totally wrong if you think so.
    The reason behind it is you over optimized it. Like you buy too much link. not buying link but too much link that build it in a day.

    You should do it slowly man.
