    "Google has detected a pattern of artificial or unnatural links pointing to your site. Buying links or participating in link schemes in order to manipulate PageRank are violations of Google's Webmaster Guidelines.

    As a result, Google has applied a manual spam action to mysite.com/. There may be other actions on your site or parts of your site. "

    I spent so much time and money on my content I dont wan to see it go to waste. What should I do?

    Get a long range sniper rifle, some camouflage, and camp out near Mountain View, CA.

    Take the content down and reuse it or remove the domain and add new one.

    Question, was the amount of money you used worth the cash you made? if so just do the same thing again on another site

    Guys this happened to me and it was a fucking nightmare for about 2 months. But i figured out how to fix it.

    Export your entire link profile from webmaster tools and disavow anything that isn't completely legit.

    Goodluck

    I would also be interested to know what you did that caused the violation and also how did it affect your rankings are you just gone from the SERPS or did you take a hit?

    Everyone else buys links and they have good results.. Do you have to be so abrasive? I have good onsite done and good content. The only bad thing I did was get sherlock hacks google and some SAPE links

    Just 301 redirect and it should work fine.

    You can import a disavow.txt. Took me about 20 minutes for 5k links.
