    Question Someone created a bot to insert 100,000+ links to my webpage from Wikipedia


    Someone (not me, obviously) created 100,000+ different links to the root page of my website, by using a bot, from 100,000+ different pages of the edition of the Wikipedia of a country (in the minority language of that country, my website is in English).

    Could this action damage my SEO? If so, any idea to remove all the links?

    My website has 1,000,000+ webpages, I submitted them to Google through Sitemaps, but only 200,000 are indexed. Additionally, I'm suffering the Google sandbox effect, with pages which actually offer high-quality information for several searches, but with very low ranking within the SERPs. Could both events be related?

    Thank you very much.

    Considering how long you have been a member here, much longer than I btw.....
    You still believe in the Sandbox, I am surprised...

    You should read this....
    Google And It's SandBox Period

    Just to add weight to what Test-ok has stated.

    Seems you want someone to fix your site Pro Bono, when all it will take is just a couple of hours of work.
    Your problems can be easily resolved. Click the "Red Link" in Test-ok's sig and find a pro to fix you right up !

    Two things will come of this..
    1. Your site problems will be resolved
    2. You will then learn and understand how to fix this and other related issues.
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !
