Same amount of backlinks but I dropped from around 13 to around 50 overnight?

    I'm wondering could this be cos the backlink checker doesn't register some of my backlinks? because I did a scrapebox blast of 30k (think around 11k successful) on that word last night but it still shows the same amount of backlinks on the backlink checker...

    So I'd understand if it was doing the 'google dance' since if I actually did have more backlinks but it confused me since they don't show and from 13 to 50ish is quite a drastic drop to do overnight otherwise.

    I have been using backlinkwatch to check my links if that makes a diff..

    I use Xrumer for the same thing. I notice that some of my keywords bounce around but overall keep going closer to page one. Some are now #1 beating Wikipedia so don't check your standing every day. Twice a week is good enough or you will create your own OCD.

    I'd suggest that Scrapebox blasts won't really help increasing your rankings (dont get me wrong, I think SB is fantastic for loads of other stuff) but with SB blasts you'll find the vast majority are nofall0w and hence are useless.

    1) So I should ditch scrapebox and just go with Xrumer?
    2) I'm considering just paying for an Xrumer blasting service as I hear you need a dedicated server to run Xrumer and I'm not too technically savvy with that (I've never had a dedicated server before) and I hear Xrumer has a steep learning curve. I'm looking at a site that offers 1000 links per day for only $99 per month. Would you guys say 1000 links per day is good?

    Scrapebox is best used on you money site this way:

    Buy a linkwheel or linkpush and blast only your properties, never your money site. You should see some pretty good results with this and not damage your money site ;)

    You revealed it all :p
    Blast your money site only when it has some authority and the domains is aged.

    I actually bought an xrumer blast ($10) and had it blast one of my money sites (I prob wouldn't do that again now I know how to do the buffer site thing).

    Anyway it went through like a week ago and only a couple of profiles have been indexed so far- so I'm still waiting to see how that turns out. The niche is very fresh and unsaturated from what I can tell so will be interesting to see what happens.

    Xrumer does have a steep learning curve! You do not need a server if you have a 10 Mbs connection speed. I use it for the profile BLs and nor forum posting. I don't want my site to be the next "replica watches" on forums and blogs.

    I think both programs are great for what they do so, everyone will have their own opinion. Ask yourself these questions to evaluate:
    1) what method meets which program.
    2) Budget
    3) Technical ability
    4) Learning curve (and tolerance for it)

    Seems this thread has been hijacked to an 'xrumer vs. sb' thread...

    So'k if you wanna talk about that but there is already loads of threads about that on the forum.

    Back onto the post theme...

    Google released the algo change - Farmer / Panda 2 yesterday - perhaps that is playing some part in the ranking change?
