    Hi fellas (and ladies as well),

    In addition to all the journals already being made I want to add my say to it.
    First off I am a SB user since day one (well almost) and have already blasted the crap outta a lot of sites so I am pretty sure what I can expect. However, I see a lot of people with questions regarding the safety of big blast and direct blasts to root domains and all.
    So, my goal here is to 1) rank my site and make sales 2) to show you what happens when you aggressively (I mean aggressively) run your SB software.

    That being said, let's get to the facts.


    • Website: Wordpress Amazon Review site
    • Keyword: Low competition
    • Exact match: 2900
    • Competing pages: 3,850,000
    • Payout: ~$8/sale
    • Indexed: Rootdomain only
    • Competition: so-so, couple EMD's nothing too bad
    My whole site is well optimized for the main keyword.
    Traffic Travis:
    [​IMG]

    Ranking - May 17th: n/a

    Today (May 17th) I am blasting away to 1 million freshly scraped urls (fresh as in post is max 24hrs old and thus lively).
    I will blast on a time that insures that most US based webmasters are still sleeping and are thus not immediately flagging my comment as spam.

    I expect to get all my inner pages indexed withing 24hrs after the start of the blast.
    I also expect to see my main page ranking for the main keyword in top 100 after 48hrs after ending of the blast.

    I will ofcourse update as soon as there is any development. In the mean time, if you have any questions, ask them.

    Regards,
    Mark



    Quick update:

    May 18th:
    40k successful postings so far (out of 87k)
    All inner pages of money site are indexed.
    Ranking: n/a

    What kind of blogs will you blast? WP? BE? Do you have some PR preferences as well?

    Thank you all for your interest. I am going to updated as detailed and often as possible.
    This blast is going to be on WP blogs. I don't have PR scanned because well, 1million+ urls would take me forever and basically, I don't care.

    Only in a next stage, when competition proves to be though, will I specifically comment on high PR pages.

    Hope that made sense.

    Regards,
    Mark

    Can you share details about the blasts themselves? I mean how large is the list, is it niche targeted (scraped especially for this site's keywords?) how many days will you be blasting for, all to root domain or inner pages as well?
    I'm really looking forward to your results, this could be a thread that we can copy&paste to all the "dontz blastz your moni site coz it's get you sandboxd" people to learn from :)
    Thanks

    Sure thing. It is a 1 million urls list, unique domains. No niche targeting, I used one of my 350k keyword lists to harvest 8million+ urls and removed dupe domains. Left me with a little over 1 million uniques.
    This blast will be done in 5 chunks of 200k each. I expect to take little less then 20 hours for one chunk. Why chunks of 200k? Well, after 20hours my proxies need refreshing so I will get new ones and I will change comments to avoid immediate spam label.
    This initial blast will be solely to my root domain with my main keyword as the anchor text.

    Hope this answers your questions!

    Regards,
    Mark

    Aren't you afraid that Akismet or other spam filter will blacklist your domain before you even reach the end of the first 200k round?
    How many pages does your site have?

    I couldn't care less about Akismet or other spamfilters. They are installed on a small percentage of blogs anyway. Besides, any webmaster that takes the effort to get API keys for such filters is not going to approve my comments anyway.
    My site has something like 15 pages I think.
