A few months ago I made the mistake of buying a link on a PR7 site from a fellow warrier. I assumed it was one link on one page. Well I now have over 5000 links showing in webmaster tools from his spammy site. Every time he posts an article on his page ( which has nada to do with my nitch ) another link is created. The worst part is that my anchor text is my main keyword and it goes directly to my homepage.
My site was really doing well then it began sinking and keywords that I was page 1 for are now page 3 or 4.
I dont think I can really recover because he continues to post more and create additional backlinks each day. I have made several attempts to contact the seller/webmaster both on warrior and regular emails with no reply.
If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know. This is literally keeping me up at night.
I am afraid I may have to start a new domain name and move the site to it, then just 302 the old name since it is on my truck and business cards.....
