Hi ya, realmaverick:
Since this was a test, maybe you could give us a little more info abut the sites where the links were placed?
...the websites were all legitimate, hand selected websites that were acquired.
- Do those sites have other paid links on them (to other sites)
- what is the backlink profile of those sites?
- Is it clear to google that they are all registered under different people / companies?
Knowing this information will help others here learn whether they may be under "attack" by a competitor.
