700 back links from same site to my home page.I think some one has done a Xrumer blast to knock it down.
Because i can see I'm also getting traffic from few other Arabic keywords.Seems to be an Al Qaeda attack what should I do?
**this is the site im getting links from
http://kwisp.wordpress.com
Will google sandbox my site since im getting loads of backlinks from a single site?Is there a way to remove them?

Any help will be appreciated

    I don't think that google going to sandbox your site.

    From how many IPs you received these clicks?

    Had that once from a Canadian website. I actually took the index page off - sure I sank in the SERPs. A month later - put the index page back on and went back up to original ranking...

    I think that if it is so easy to remove competitor from serps by xrumep blasts, lot of people would do it . I advice you don't worry and be happy to get 700 backlinks.

    You are useing a wordpress platform, are you useing akismet and if you are have you added the IP address to there data base.

    Do you have trackback and ping back on. Have you went to there site to see how were your site comes up. I'm not an expert, but if you are using a hosting provider then I would put in a support ticket and see what they can do to block the person if that is what you want.

    If you're running a WordPress site, install and configure this plugin (it's not just for blocking registrations), and your problems will go away:
    WordPress › Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin « WordPress Plugins

    You can also block that site and software (IP, referrer and/or user agents) via htaccess.

    HAHAHA!

    If you look at that site in the sidebar they have a recent commenter section. Check to see if any of those are your links. Also check the sidebar in general. If the link is there, you will get backlinks from every page on that website, which is exactly what it looks like.

    Did you leave a comment on the blog or buy any blog comment sevices lately?

    If you were to leave a comment somewhere on that site a link to your site would also show under "Said By You" on the side bar.

    Because there is a link to your site on the side bar it means your link will appear in every page of that blog. So if the blog has 700 pages, you will get 700 links.

    EDIT: Matt got there before me

    LOL! That's a good one!

    Seriously though, I agree with fishka. If it were that easy to take down a site, then I would spend the money to take down all my competitors.

    I wish someone would try to do that to me!

    I do not think I have found a post that made me laugh harder than this one.

    Yes, we no longer have to fear conventional terrorist attacks. No more shooting, bombings, etc. Nope. Now they are after your silly little MFA site.


    And to answer the OP's question about this, as other people have said, you probably just left a blog comment on a site that has a plugin that lists recent comments in the sidebar. Your comment happened to be listed there when the search engine spider visited that site. Because of that, it indexed a backlink from most, if not all, of the pages on the site. The next time it visits, your comment will likely be bumped off the 'recent comments' section and it will correct itself. No big deal.

      Theres always someone like you that does not see the dangers to our way of life and freedom. If we are going to remain a world power we need a strong and vibrant economy and the terrorists know this. Haven' you read enough here on WF to know that our economy RELIES on MFAs??? Get a little patriotism and stand up for your country.

    easiest way to deal with this would be by setting up a 301 redirection where links coming from that specific site will be forwarded to an external site like georgewbush.com or something
