    Hello Everyone,

    For the past 2 months I have been running a little test on one of my competitor's sites. In the beginning of this test, he was ranked #2 and I was ranked #3.

    My competitor had about 115 more backlinks then I did. So I thought to my self that I would test out and see if G would drop them if I was to blast their site with spammy links.

    So here is what I did. I scraped what I thought was the total oposite of our niche, found about 500,000 blogs to comment on and went to town. Nothing above a pagerank of 1 got hit. So what I was doing was dropping links to his site on the worst blogs ever.

    I did all of these links in about 48 hours maybe a little more.

    Three days later, I was number 2 and he was no where to be found on the first page. I used MS and could not find him in the first 100 results.

    I forgot to mention that the #1 spot is held by an authority site. It is an about page/article that I did not think it would matter if I spammed.

    I moved up the ranks and he was dropped off. This lasted for about 17 days.

    ---Here is what sucks. After those 17 days of getting much more traffic being in the number 2 position, my competitor comes back, and guess what he is above the about site. He is the #1 position.

    So my conclusion.

    1. If you are spamming the hell out of your site and it falls off, keep building and be patient. I believe it will come back.

    2. Don't spam your competition. It will just help them out in the long run.

    I hope this helps to answer some people's questions. If you have any questions, please post them in this thread.

    I am going back to work now, to rank in that number 1 position that I now know is doable.

    Yeah, I had just read a lot of threads about people's sites dropping and everything so I thought I would run test. I have been working very hard at keeping a schedule and this really didn't cost me any extra time as it was about the most spammy comments in the world, free proxies that I scraped, and scrapebox.

    I just wanted to give an example of the test that I ran, so people can have a little peace if their sites drop out of the serps.

    Sounds like you need to blast those 500K sites with your url now. Maybe if you broke the list up you wouldn't get hit by the dance like he did.

    On the bright side. We can now officially blast enormous amount of back links to our site.

    in my experience, google works on a 2-3 strike rule, if you blasted it like that again, they would probably disappear for longer than 17 days

    I did this to see what would happen. I didn't lose any money and now I know. I thought I would share what I now know with this forum. If you have a problem with that you can piss off.

    I was trying to release what I thought was relevant and helpful information.

    which platform did you post his links on?
    Wordpress/Blogengine/Movable?

    as most WP blogs are nofollow, I don't know how it might have helped.

    And, what "anchor text" did you use for the links?

    Did you put keyword(s) in the name field? or did you put html in the comments.

    Thanks for taking time to answer my question, as this would help analyze the whole process, and hopefully make it better!

    I did it the lazy man way. I used all three blog platforms that scrapebox will comment on. I also just used the keywords in the name section when posting.

    If that doesn't answer your questions let me know.

    How many back links did you blasted him with? I experience the same thing with my website. It disappear from google search for weeks before coming back with higher ranking.

    And tell him your real name and address while your at it. I mean you need to give him the opportunity to sue you for the lost profit of those 17 days lost ranking.

    Well what this shows is that if you can't outrank someone and want quick cash by being 1st then spam their sites and profit for 1 to 3 weeks!

    If however you want to rank top and don't mind if it takes you 1 to 3 weeks to get there then spam!

    Simple :)

    Yeah I don't know about that. The money made in a couple weeks is not that great compared to the money he is probably making now in the number one position.

    As for contacting him, he has actually contacted me about a link exchange. We have never talked about scrapebox or what I did, but he did want to do a link exchange.

    I will look at his site today and see how many links there are indexed.

    Awesome job and even more awesome post. It sucks that he is now #1 but you now know what you need to do. Unless you need the post count don't even respond to the haters on this thread. they will get dealt with as soon as their competitor figures out how to deindex others. Please keep on testing and posting... +1 rep for you...

    At the end of the day, any backlink is better than no backlink, FACT!
