Is 700 backlinks too much in one hit?

I am interested in using magic article submitter that can post one article into 700 directories! but am concerned that doing this in one hit will upset google especially as my site is brand new, I am worried that I will get sand boxed before even starting! is this so or is there normally a setting in the software for the articles to be released over a certain period?

You do not say if you are spinning your article before sending it out to all those directories. If not, you should, but perhaps that is what the 'magic' is all about? And yes, the system should have a delayed release so that the articles are released over a credible timeframe, from the search engines' point of view. Otherwise don't touch it.

Just because your article is being sent to 700+ directories or blogs, it doesn't mean that you will automatically get 700+ backlinks. Even if all the directories accept your article, most of those pages are not promoted and so will not ever get indexed by the search engines.

Out of 700 submitted I would expect maybe 30 at most to ever appear in Google.

To test it create a Google alert for your keyword for one of the submitted articles and see how many times it gets found over the next few weeks. You might be surprised.

Is making 10.000/day to much?
Now for sure you will upset a lot of people doing this ... but are sure you are going to make this sum?
So expect a lot of pages not to get indexed ... and even if they are indexed ... they will not be right away.

link building speed is something you always have to watch your own stats to really judge. what i find best is about a 1/5 ratio of visitors to links. for every unique vist I get per day, I allow myself 5 links. This will keep your link building looking natural.

So, if you are getting 5 unique visitors per day (not that hard really, most new sites can get that with no problem!) you can build 25 links per day.

IF you are getting 10 visitors per day, you can build 50 links per day...

this keeps your link building looking natural, and since I have started doing it, I haven't had a single site sandboxed.

I would have though a 1:1 ratio of links to visitors would be the max you would want. But isn't consistency the issue? You don't want sudden bursts of a lot of links. It might be better to ramp it up slowly over time.

Even if you only get an average of 5 new links a day to a site, this comes to almost 2000 a year which is significant.

I go based on the theory that if people really like what yuo have to say, they will share it with at least 5 people that they know. online, I tend to translate this that you can share it with up to 5 sites that you use.

That would give a decent ratio of llinks going out in a day.

as I said, I haven't been sandboxed since I started doing that.

goig with a 1 to 1 ratio would take forever, especially with a new site. that would mean your site that is getting 10 visitors/ day you could only build 10 links a day. that would take you forever to get a decent number of links to your site.

James, I assume that you have sites that get over 100 visitors per day. But I'm curious to know how you manage to generate an extra 500+ links a day without buying them from some blackhat SEO specialist.

This is true. Those links you are building through article submission, blog and forum commenting, etc. need to be clicked by a user in order to be counted by search engines as a backlink. Submitting to hundreds of directories up the chances but not by so much. Consider the directories your articles will be submitted to. There are not a lot of high ranking article directories now after the Panda update.

I suggest doing the same as Greg and James. I'm sure you'll get more success that way in the long run.

Easyrider, I didn't say I built 500+ links a day manually. This is what bloggers call link baiting. you create content that other bloggers link to as valuable resources. Most affilaite sites wont ever get that kind of linking going on, because their content is worthless. Content is a higher focus for my sites than building links, because I know if I get killer content, and build a few links in the right places, I will get other people building my links for me without having to pay for them.
But then again, my IM blog and guest posts I write myself. a lot of my other sites, I have a writer that writes for me. but there is a reason she gets paid $30+/ article that she writes. Its more expensive for the content that way, but I am not paying for seo on those sites either.

if you have a site getting over 100 visitors/day, you should be getting some natural link building to your site. if you arent' it shows how bad your niche sees your content. No matter how good YOU think it is, if your visitors arenn't sharing it socially, its not good enough.
