Sandboxing Your Competitor

A thread at WebmasterWorld suggests that a good competitive strategy is to sandbox your competitor. The thread creator said:

Now wouldn't it be in your best interest to sandbox your competition? You see a new site throwing up some PPC ads in your space, you immediately give them a few run-of-site links from some other sites you run and watch them get sandboxed.

My first reaction was the same reaction ciml, WebmasterWorld administrator wrote in message number 6:

It's an approach that is just as likely to help the competitor as it is to harm it, in my opinion.

As the member who posted before ciml said:

If they try and be agressive to rank, they will be sandboxed.

If they are not, they won't rank.

Eitherway you are safe.

This technique is similar to clicking on your competitor's PPC ads, and it is based on the larger life principle that the only way to stay on top is by making your competitors fail. Good luck with this approach. I hope you succeed.
