    I've bought a fiverr seo gig last year. I got spammed with around 3k backlinks which all got indexed. ahrefs is showing me around 600. google webmaster tools is showing me 3k.
    Only really spammy backlinks, REALLY SPAMMY.

    Do you think it's got penalized? I have perferct OnPage seo but even if the keywords are low competition I am not ranking better than 100.
    Disavow backlinks?
    Or buy new domain?

    ( I decided to work at this site now so don't wonder why it's 1 year ago )

    See if your URL is even indexed thats always a good first way to check but if the anchor profile looks really spammy i would start a new one!

    better create a new blog, because a new blog, has the potentials of ranking better than the spam one. You can then point a link from the spammy blog to your new blog homepage, a wikipedia link, a high pagrank youtube video and just let it go... It'll pass the juice to your blog. Believe me.

    Do you think this will be safe? I need the articles of the old one for the new one, what should I do? Just delete on the old and use it one the new? or rewrite it?

    You may not be penalized but your ranking may drop considerably.

    Unfortunately yes, you can use the old posts but they must be de-indexed by google first. But have in mind you will have to start from scratch for SEO with the new domain, you will have no ranking.

    No problem, I just had planned to start from scratch. I have earned some knowledge and ranked some parasite pages with simple gsa blasts. I'm trying to do web2.0s with some other links and some social bookmarks as my tier1.

    How to deindex these posts? Just delete the website? I mean delete the blog on my cpanel?

    This is what blows me away, why the heck did you purchase a crappy Fiverr gig? Obviously 3,000 links from Fiverr are gonna be low quality. What did you expect?

    If you are willing to throw away the domain over a crappy Fiverr gig I'd recommend reevaluating your business model entirely.

    That was 1 year ago It was the start of my internet marketing career, till yet I've banked over youtube! So I thought yeah why not buy a fiverr gig when I had no thought about seo.

    I bought new domain, and requested in google webmaster tools that they are deindexing the posts I also have made the posts private so what do you think? Can I "transfer" them today?
