    I have the opportunity to have a scrapebox blast done for my site. 1000 links with as many anchors as I want.
    I know scrapebox is black hat for sure and I have done no black hat on my site. I really haven't done any offsite seo.
    Is this a good idea? Anyone have some input here?

    Depending on the age of your site, I see no harm in getting the blast, in fact, it will almost certainly help you out at least some.

    It's 2 years old now. It's been "in development" forever. Now I am really out looking for clients, so SEO, marketing and everything just started to matter. That's why I'm wondering.

    Yeah. Already had a look around. Thanks though. :p

    It's fine. Google doesn't penalize for trash links, they just don't give them much credit (if any) otherwise your competitors would be SB blasting you.

    I blasted a brand new domain before it was even indexed (this was 2 weeks ago) - it was funny looking at yahoo site explorer, no pages indexed but 1600 backlinks. This was a rather competitive keyword (I went for exact domain match when registering had to take keyword1-keyword2.us because everything else was taken, including stuff like keyword1keyword2info.com) - Long story short, I'm #2 result on yahoo, #3 on bing, page 5 on google (and climbing) - G will take longer and the blasted links will have less value, but I'll see page 1 in a month or 2.

    Edit to add:
    Holy crap 2 year old domain? Yeah let the links fly.

    1000 is not a blast, it is a fart. Keep cool.

    Wow, I rank ok organically (1st page) for my blog posts and NOWHERE on any other search engine.
    But not for the keywords I actually want.

    I will give it a go. 1000 isn't really anything anyway.

    With a 2 year old domain you have absolutely nothing to worry about (famous last words!). You really shouldn't have ANY problem whatsoever. In fact, I think you will be pleased with the results and want to do more!

    cooookies is right... 1000 is barely in the "blast" category!

    I told my friend what you said. He thought it was funny and offered 30,000.

    You might want to be careful if your site is new and you plan to blast 30.000 direct to your money site.

    I ended up doing the 1000 Backlinks with 5 different key phrases. My site went from Alexa, 450K, to 360K. So up almost 100K in rank.. Not bad I suppose.

    Someone please give me a new site with good rankings. I'll destroy within two days blasting it with Scrapebox. "Just devalues links blabla".

    Bullshit.

    Ya I wouldn't worry about it, 1k isn't that much. Plus are these even auto approve? If not you'll likely only get 1% approved and live off a random blast.

    They are verified. I recieved a report with the page that each link was on, but I didn't check them all (obviously). I am sold though on the fact that I jumped up 25% from where I was in the USA rankings (Alexa).

    1000 shouldn't make much difference... I blasted about 15000 auto approves to several completely new sites - they got indexed overnight and began to climb quite high,
    after 5-10 days most of them took a hit by Google, but it was temporary and all recovered within a week of a second 10000 blast...

    Give it a go, see how you get on, then be brave and go for a bigger one - i'm new to scrapebox but it seems to be that consistency is key to success.

    Sure this isn't going to change the world overnight, but I like the Alexa jump.
    Now I am thinking of having someone do a link-wheel or a pyramid.
    Should I make one big one, or many small ones?

    I think if your site age more than 3 month you can use scrapebox for finding backlink. But still low quality in google eye.

    Go for link pyramids and I suggest go for many small ones from different providers. If you really wanna take a somewhat scientific approach, do only one at a time, wait for changes, then do another one and another one and so on. This will enable you to see which services are worth paying for again, in the future.
