    So one of my up and coming sites that I did some Scrapebox blasts on went from Google pagerank unranked to 2/10 in about 3 months. I was happy to see this.. but then again, all the search keywords I was on the bottom of the first page for have vanished... have I been sand boxed? If so how do i know?

    And If i were sandboxed, why would my google rank go up? Shouldnt it have penalized that as well? Or atleast halted that from growing?

    Confused :(

    Another great example as to how PageRank don't mean shit anymore...

    PR has nothing to do with whether your site drops in the rankings or not. You'll lose PR if you lose backlinks, in case it goes down. You'll lose PR COMPLETELY if you get banned. Those are the two ways of losing PR I know of. There are supposedly some more, but those are highly debatable and probably not subject for this discussion.
