Too Many Links Too Fast?

Will removing inbound links get you out of sandbox?

I have been hearing more and more that if you obtain too many inbound links to fast for a new site that you will most certainly get sanboxed!

Well that's the situation I am currently in now.

Is it possible to reverse the effect and get out of the sandbox if you remove many of the inbound links that are now pointing to my website?

Just a thought.

Has anyone tried this? Did it work?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

It would probably only affect your PR not the sandbox variable that got you there in the first place. The only way you can get out from the SB, as far as I know, is to reach the amount of time Google sets for you to be in. If you removed the links you would still be there for the amount of time originally intended, plus you may loose PR.

Nobody knows this forsure! Just my experience!

Wait and think about Adwords if you NEED Google traffic!
