    Okay I think I may have misinterpreted what a "link pyramid" is, and, most nerve-breaking, I think I may have just MURDERED my website by mistake -_-, because as far as I know, a link pyramid goes like this:

    [www] <--- This is my website
    |
    |
    V
    A backlink <--- This is a backlink
    |
    |
    V
    A load of other backlinks <--- This is a backlink that gives juice to my main backlink, so that my backlinks can reindex/index faster, allowing my website to rank faster as well...

    Okay so my point is that I just made a website on... the 2th... and today is... the 5th! My site did not exist at all. It's completely new, and what I'm worried most about is being BLACKLISTED or sandboxed for over 15K PR2-8 backlinks X__X!

    When I ordered these backlinks, I thought that I would only get 15 backlinks, and not over 15K backlinks. Please someone help. This is an investment gone terribly wrong man. I swear... May not seem like much to you guys, but $15 is a lot to waste for me right now, and my budget is very low!

    Please, if anybody can explain what a link pyramid is, and how it works, I would really appreciate you right now!!

    This is a basic link pyramid:

    Tier 3 (Xrumer / Scrapebox) ==> Tier 2 (Web 2.0, ex. Squidoo) ==> Tier 1 (Articles) ==> Money Site

    If you vary the anchors, you will not get penalized.

    You should message the service provider and ask him or her to add 2-3 anchor variations.

    Example:

    If you are targeting "Make Money", your anchors should be:

    Make Money
    Online Making Money
    Making Money Online Fast
    Fast Easy Money
    etc.

    This way you do not get penalized.

    Also, link pyramids are not that powerful, so you should not worry about penalty because the Tier 1 is doing most of the power push to your site anyways.

    You say 15k PR2-8 backlinks...are they scrapebox comments or what?

    No one can help you without you telling what exactly you purchased.

    And your basic idea of a link pyramid is right.

    Basically it is a high quality link, eg a contxtual article/wiki link or a .edu with a lot of tier 2 links pointing to it, such as scrapbook blog comments or xrummer profile links, then backlinks to those backlinks so it will end up as a pyramid

    Okay, Well got the person to vary them. So I'm OK right there, but you said link pyramids aren't powerful. What are the most powerful backlinks then?

    Well, I did a small scan through the links, and the tier 1 links are articles, blog posts, and the other tiers are the same as tier 1 but mixed with blog comments
