    Brisbane mate!
    Well after countless hours of researching this forum and watching youtube videos, I took the plunge into the world of scrapebox on the weekend. I have a relatively new website that is about 1 month old now and has 130 links showing in yahoo. Currently I am sitting on page one position 5 for my main keyword in a not too overly competitive keyword (15,000 searches a month).

    Now there has been a lot of talk here about not blasting new websites and making sure to use buffer sites and all the rest. But on the other hand there has also been a lot of people saying dont worry about it. Well I have decided to do a little testing to see whether or not there will be any bad implications of me using scrapebox directly to my newish website.

    The goal is to try get around 500 links a night and continue to do this for a month. Well last night I started off by finding 10,000 blogs that were related to my niche. Ran them through blog analyzer and removed the duplicate urls. I was then left with a list of about 8000.

    I then ran a fast comment with spun comments relating to my niche to hopefully get them to stick better. At the end of the first run i had 2000 successful posts. Though only 300 showed up as actual links when checking. Before going to bed i put the list through slow commenter and was getting about 50% success from that.

    Woke up this morning with the comments only half complete cause some popup came up halting the process. So at the end of day one i had about 3500 successfull posts of which 500 were already showing.

    I plan to continue doing this each night to see what effects it has on my website; whether I only see positive results and get to that number one spot or whether my site drops out. Will be interesting to see and I will post an update at the end of each week for you guys.

    Though I do intend to post on all blog engines, I only ran the query on those two last night.

    I'm curious to see how this affects your web site rankings. I am doing a similar experiment on an a year old autoblog I have.

    try doubling your links evey week,it will have much greater effect .. your site will get sandboxed very quickly but eventually it will come out stronger ..

    Have you tested to see if you site has been flagged by Akismet yet?
    I did this on a month old blog last week and after the first or second blast (much smaller than yours) the site was flagged.

    Just a quick update: I have been running scrapebox on my site for 4 days now. Each day im getting a confirmed 500ish links pointing to my site for my main keyword. Today 100 of those links have shown up in yahoo site explorer and my site has gone from #5 to #3 in google. So far things are lookin good.

    One tip for you. Dont run them through Blog Analyser, it just waste much time. If the blog is not "worthy" of your post than fast/slow commenter will just put it in fail so there is no need to remove it though Blog Analyser as it takes much precious time which you could use on something else.

    One question: Do you use keyword as anchor or names?

    Yeah im not using the analyzer. I have a list of 200k+ links that i am just blasting the crap out of another one of my sites. Any that get auto approved i then save for my daily 500 links for this site. And yes i am using anchor text.

    be careful!!! I bought SB a couple weeks ago and I am either in the middle of a google penalty or on the train to Sandboxville!

    I went from 50 range to the 2-3rd page. Then got hit back 10-20 spots and now I am not even in the top 50. Some keywords have me on page 10!!

    I am totally freaking out and don't know what to do.

    People say you will bounce back better than before but every day I'm losing cash....

    ..your are in dance right now and keep building backlinks is what you should do. when you will rank good again is hard to say but keep adding the links and google will see that some thing is happening all the time.

    Thank you so much for this info! I have been having problems with how to use sb to the best of it's ability. This among other threads has been very helpful! I am now doing some really sneaky stuff with sb that is getting many good blogs to post on as well as some other footprints.

    Really great thread!
    I bought scrapebox last sunday and each day I created 500-1200 backlinks. But Market Samurai shows me just 70 more backlinks. Why am I failing so hard? :(
