    Hello

    My first venture into this whole black-hat SEO business has resulted in my first, small, three or four page website being sandboxed. At least I think it's sandboxed, but it could be doing the Google dance. I originally had around 20 backlinks and when I bought Scrapebox I added around 50 backlinks each day per week. The site was around position 50 and then disappeared. It still shows up in Google if I Google the domain name but doesn't rank for any of the keywords. I have around 400 backlinks.

    It's been this way for the last couple of weeks and it's making me a bit edgy. I have created a few more backlinks each day but it's annoying to not see any results. I have a number of articles and other blogs pointing to the same money site and am wondering just how hard I can hit these with Scrapebox.

    Irritatingly enough my competitor only appears to have about 43 backlinks of his own. It makes me think I'd have been better off creating backlinks manually instead of getting all excited by my new purchase, but from everything I've read, spamming 50 or so backlinks the day shouldn't have got me sandboxed.

    How many backlinks do you think I can create a day to the various articles and blogs?

    Did you directly point the SB blast to your money site? If yes I can say being sandboxed is not impossible. The best way to utilize Scrapebox blast is to use buffer sites so you can protect your site from bad links.

    That's what I've now figured out.

    Does anyone have any suggestion as to how many backlinks to a buffer site like Ezinearticles I can create per day?

    There must be some people here that can offer a rough idea. Is it thousands? hundreds? Ten?

    I hit the same site with 25K verified posts in SB today....was that a bad idea?

    Probably...but I am learning this stuff too, and I'm setting up domains just to try *stuff on to learn.

    You can hit your ezine articles (or any other "Web2" satellite site) with as many as you want. If you are only a "couple weeks" in on your main site then you should probably keep building some each day for consistency. The popular superstition is that google "tests" you to see if it will keep building. It is as good a belief as any.

    If this is a brand new domain all bets are off. You can rank high and tank hard with a new domain and there is no logic to it. Call it the "fresh site" bonus. Just keep a steady flow of various backlinks and content (and superb on-site seo) and you should weather the storm just fine.
