    Hi
    I was working on a one year old domain that had no backlinks. A couple of days ago, I spammed about 1000 blogs with scrapebox. before the blast, the site was on page 7. now, it is not in the first 1000 pages.
    I think this is called sandbox? what now? do I get order an xrumer blast? do I write some articles? Do I stop for now?
    This is my first SEO client and he is going to be pissed when he finds out.

    may be dancing - check back in a few days and see if you have reappeared and moved in the serps before thinking you have gotten the dreaded SBox.

    How are you sure that the website has been sandboxed? It takes sometime for google to find all those backlinks, like earlier mentioned, keep building backlinks but I would suggest you build the links slowly.

    Its just dancing, dont worry.

    I have been blasting 3 Domains which is 1 month old with about 75.000 Blogs each a week, it jumped up and down and up and down, and now its actually sticking in the top with about 2-3k backlinks.

    In my opinion its either De-indexed or Google Dance. That sandbox thing just doesnt add up to me, but ofc your free to believe what you want :)

    Good Luck

    I wouldn't be surprised if the site comes back in a day or so on at least page 4

    Well if you got a 1000$/day money site, i would prolly go other ways. but for building a site up i usually just blast away with what i can. :)

    Direct linking through spam on a clients money site doesn't sound too smart to me!

    Anyway, as people have suggested, keep building backlinks but try to find higher quality links. Writing fresh and unique content may also help.

    Also, you quite likely have set client expectations already, but if they enquire about rankings just try to make it clear to them that it can take X amount of days before you start to see significant results. That will buy you time so they don't start harrassing you about rankings.

    You'll move back up eventually...and probably higher up too. But you really should think about protecting clients sites with web 2.0 properties and the like! :rolleyes:
