    My website, registered on March 4th, and I'm PR4 since the earlier PR update.
    My traffic per day is really low, according to the hosting statistics.

    Code:
    Yesterday's traffic	443 Visits
    Traffic this month	3157 Visits
    Traffic last month	12195 Visits
    My understanding of Scrapebox is that it would increase my backlinks. Though, will it put my website in danger? i.e getting it de-indexed, lose backlinks, etc? It is quite young for a website, and I'd like to know how helpful it will be before I purchase it.

    Yeah, I mean depending on how spammy you get it might decrease your PR, but it would increase your SERP which is how you get visitors. So unless you are selling links based on PR I wouldn't sweat it.

    Sbox would help, but you would have to have already done a good job on your SEO and keyword research up to this point. As Pat says though, there are many many things you can do with it.

    What evidence is there that it can decrease your PR?

    I can't say I can provide you with any "evidence" just my experience. I have a site that ranks #4/5 for a windows vista related keyword. I have a competitor who ranks #1. As I tracked their progress and my own over the past couple years the more spammy I got and they got both our PR goes down. They now dominate the SERP but are PR0 and I am down to PR2 and at postion 4/5. Our other competitors are pretty white hat and have PR 3/4.

    Like I said its just my experience, but I don't see how a competitor and myself can continue to rank well, increase our backlinks, bey spammy and go down in PR while or other competitors that aren't spammy don't decrease PR and continue to build whitehat links.

    PR is about Trust, spam = less trust. I wouldn't say there is a science to it or you could go decrease other people PR, but at the same time I can't ignore my experimentation results. Albeit a small enough sample group that I can't really say anything for sure. With 400+ Algo changes in 2009 I don't think anyone can say anything for sure and have it stick for any reasonable amount of time.

    If you use SB the wrong way, then yes, you are going to hurt your site. The beauty of SB is that it isn't just one tool. It is several tools rolled up into one nice package with a GREAT support. As many have stated before, SB is worth 10 times what it is selling for....easily.

    Well sitewide links, links in footers of templates, blasting the same comment/anchor combo to a million blogs, etc... While G may not be able to determine a lot of factors that could impact SERPS, PR is about Trust. There are certainly things they can see that says, that guy isn't sparkling whitehat, but we don't really know if its him or his competitors. So we can lower his PR which will mess with his mind and scare him into behaving, but we are going to leave the SERPs cause at the end of the day people want what they search for and he seems to be delivering on that....

    I am TOTALLY theroizing at this point, but it could happen. You get the point anyway.

    This doesn't mean that if you use it wisely it can't increase your PR. It means that I have focused my research and testing on increasing SERPs and I don't care about PR so long as my rank is good. My PR decrease observation is what seems to happen, but I haven't dug any deeper on it then that.

    It falls back to what hitman said. Sbox is many tools rolled into one. Use it wisely and you can greatly help your site. How do you use it wisely? Well read here, test on a site that doesn't mater, adjust, test, adjust and then rinse and repeat.
