    About a month ago I decided to try out some micro niche blogs. One I believe is sandboxed, and this one I cannot get it to budge in the SERPS. I am being beaten by big sites with a page on every product in the universe, like Nextag.com, amazon, mysimon. Here is what market samurai says about the competition. I even have the exact keyword as my .com domain name.

    I would think that if you had to increase your page rank that it would make a difference...

    For instance:

    I have a site that ranks very well on google with only 149 backlinks competing with sites with well over 1000 links on it.

    What are the quality of your links?

    Maybe it could be the fact that the top sites are in DMOZ and Yahoo Directory (although I read somewhere that people say Yahoo Directory isnt that powerful anymore... whether its true or not I dont know)

    Dunno mate, just my 2 cents.

    Good luck,

    Most of the links are scrapebox and bookmarkwiz with the keyword phrase as the A tag, with some other keywords thrown in to mix it up.

    You probably got your site sandboxed cause all your backlinks are pointing to your route domain. Using scrapebox on a brand new domain is a no no unless you do it correctly. I bet you in a few months you will all of a sudden your rankings will jump if you keep building backlinks.

    How long should I wait to use Scrapebox for a new domain and how hard should I go? I waited a week on this one, and started immediately on the one that is sandboxed for sure.
