Hi BHW, This is my first thread. I'd like to thank everyone that regularly contributes for all the useful info on this forum. I have been lurking for some time, and have used CASHs blueprint to promote my site. Everything seems to be working well, accept today I get this random phone call from some guy, claiming that I was "SPAMMING" the "INTERNET" and he provided me with an email address that was used to do this. He claimed that he was submitting my IP to get blacklisted and the email address as well. (something about akismet registry) On top of that, the a$$ goes on my google places page and leaves a ranting review about how all of my previous reviews were also spam and that my company is a known "spammer". The email address I could care less about, but the IP has me worried. What are the reporcussions for me and my moneysite? Can it get sandboxed/penalized, etc? I believe this info would be useful for many users. (I searched numerous threads, but I'm still concerned) Background info: I use the following tools: TBS, AMR, SENuke X and Scrapebox. I use them in the following manner: write an article and spin (3 sentence versions plus spin "favorites)-> submit with SENuke X to all web 2.0 pointing back to money site -> submit article to AMR pointing back to web2.0 and moneysite -> make a list of live websites and "spam" them through Scrapebox (about 20K success, never back to moneysite directly). Also I create RSS feed and ping it of the live links. I use proxies in SENuke (the ones they provide) and I use Scrapebox proxies that I find online (not the ones provided in scrapebox) and do not use proxies with AMR. I'm concerned because anyone can see that these are basically link pyramids, so although I use proxies, wouldn't a manual review still screw me? Can my site get blacklisted/sandboxed? What is the difference if any? Am I doing something wrong with this strategy? I own a brick and mortar store and trying to get my site ranked for a few national highly competative keywords and am currently on pages 3-5 for some of them. The domain is about a year old and I have been using this strategy for the last 3-5 months, (started using scrapebox just a month ago).
