In jan 07 decided to do some text links so went looking for QUALITY websites and found one great site that are exaclty the same theme as my website. I did a wide site text link for ie:"small fast expensive car" in january 07 on one of the sites PR3 when it had only 10 pages now it has 20 with my text link on every one.
a month ago i noticed out of nowhere im ranking middle of page 1 for that phrase and anything from page 1 to 9 for a combination of the phrases.
Then now(past 5 days) i found another same theme website Pr4 and did the same for wide site text link for "elegant fast expensive car"on 10 pages and my ranking improved 30% better for the combination almost instantly.
I got carried away and got another wide site text link from the same first website Pr3 for the same phrase "elegant fast expensive car" as a deep link.
It seemed too good to be true so i did some investigation and i learned that wide site text linking can get you sand boxed.
My question is do you think i will get sandboxed by google.And if so what do you suggest i do.
So far as i understood i should not stop the site wide text link.just as long as i dont add any more. any more sugestions.
thanks for all responses
What I think you should do is leave that situation how it is and take advantage of where you're at now. Try to make youself as useful to visitors as you can and keep your content fresh. That's the best way to optimize you site right there.
No offense intended by this, I'm speaking generally and not about you specifically, but if your site's lame, then you really don't deserve page one rankings anyway.
Seize this opportunity and start keeping some good, fresh content on there, and you have a good chance of maintaining if not increasing your rankings.
Neverthelees later on once I have been a bit more cautious on the same domain it ranks later on. Once it has the trust then I can blast it into the SERPS again.
So this is balanced advice that I can back up with experience.
