    Hi All!
    Ive been looking at tools like SENuke and GSA and Ive heard of the dangers of being sandboxed if you set the drip rate too high for new content.
    Then in other places I've heard that the sandbox is just a myth.
    whats going on here?
    Do you know of any source of information to go to on this?
    Thanks

    It's a myth. Other people may disagree but I believe it's a scapegoat for people who have shitty rankings.

    This pretty much describes every site I've seen where the owner claims they have been sandboxed. No dude, your site is just shit.

    Its a myth, no one really knows for sure.

    I never started SEO very early on a website so I have no idea.

    Is there any way google would penalize for using such tools as SENuke of GSA?

    It is a myth. More like shitty SEO than sandbox.

    Many people don't know this, but the Google sandbox is actually located at Google headquarters in the daycare center. Google has fresh sand flown in every day. I heard one kid found a lobster in there. He took it home and named it Mr. Crabs.

    Will Google Penguin be a problem for me if I'm using SENuke or GSA?

    Sandbox was all the rage here on the forum, a year ago. It is not popular at this point. People are sourcing new ways to find excuses why their site is not ranking.

    No, but Google Mamba could cause you some problems.

    SENuke and GSA are outdated for link building since a while now. Maybe they work for some low competitive keywords but for something long-term....useless. Outsourcing is the key now.

    SENuke and GSA are not outdated, they can be used for different sorts of link building, I've done GSA campaigns on my 2.0 tier backlinking strategy for my niche sites and they help my rankings very well.

    More than a year ago you placed a backlink and the power of it would increased the rankings within a few days, now it takes around a month. That's a fact.
