    Hello everyone,

    I did some test with a new (expired) website for an easy niche in a foreign language (Arabic). With some links (not many), I got the site up to ~1,000 UV/day in just 2 weeks. After that it dropped to around 100 and now it's still there for more than a month.

    I'm not that great with SEO. Is it sandboxed? What's recommended to do now?

    Thanks

    Could be a lot of things. How many links did you build (what is your definition of 'not many')? How fast? What type of links? Did you use a lot of exact match anchor? Are the links still alive/indexed? Is the niche news related?

    Without more information it's really hard to say what exactly is happening.

    You might even have unknowingly run a black hat seo campaign on it and made google think the content was going viral, but then you stopped linking and the site bounced down. It could have been a grace period since your site is new, then again you said it was an expired domain but we don't know if this expired domain had any pre-existing links, or if it was a pre-existing site.

    Ranking fluctuation, you need to keep building links to site to make your site up in ranking and to get traffic.
