    I did some blog commenting with a free blog commenting tool I found on here and it seemed to work pretty well except on a couple websites somehow I got backlinks from almost every page on the site. This created hundreds of backlinks and my two websites dropped out of the google rankings. They are still indexed but one was #3, is out of the top 100. Any ideas? I'm going to try an remove some backlinks and vary my anchor text, but im not really sure what to do. I guess this is the famous sandbox. Happened to my best producing website too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't remove backlinks, that would further drop your rankings...

    Instead, build more. Google wants consistency in the links that appear to your site.

    How sure are you about this?

    my 6 month old site has been sandboxed and Im ranking VERY badly for ALL my keywords. It was because of my aggressive link-building campaign from last month.

    any ideas?

    yea I am not sure whether to build more links with varied anchor text or just chill. I feel like if I chill its admitting guilt and unnatural link building, but if I keep building links I will only pile onto the problem.

    Build some quality links along with them and also do blog commenting for those pages giving you quality links.
