    Are your sites getting ranked after latest google algorith,

    I see there is 30 day sandbox, but its not for long tail keywords.

    I had started 4 sites, they are on page 3 itself even after building links from 100 pr3 websites.

    All of my sites get ranked after 3 days max. from subimission day.

    Yes, after this change on Google, even more, but if it's not really quality site, it is sent to sandbox.

    If your site spend more than 10 days there, delete it and submit it again.

    You need to read more on the forum. Lots of people have experienced the same issue. There is no quick fix.

    Adrain,

    Are your sites getting ranked on Page 1,?

    1)What is the level of competition for the keyword you choose?
    2)Are they Long tail keywords or, single/2 word keywords
    3)What is the backlink strategy you employed, I guess you can tell it in brief ie ; Quality or Quanity Link Building , Manual or Automated Link building,Social Signals
    4) Are you using any PBN service? for your websites?

    It's more difficult now. No matter the quality of the links you build, your site will still undergo the waiting period. How long has it been since you started building links?

    Don't expect to start ranking well until after 4 to 6 months. For now, focus on publishing quality content regularly and building links slowly while doing that.

    Yes, it is quite a feat to reach 3rd page now for a fresh new site. I remembered my website on the 59th page during my first two months - disheartening

    My sites are still getting ranked in top. But I see some changes and fluctuations. Taking longer to rank is a fact for certain keywords and niches. Internal pages seem to be ranking better than home pages. More general, authority style sites with more content and more links, tend to rank better than small niche specific sites, even for the keywords that these niche specific sites target.

    SEO is in a constant flux of change, but taking a longer term approach, and learning to evaluate sites at 3-months, and 6-months and 1-year instead of fretting of why they don't rank in the first 30 days will give you more peace of mind and less stress from all these updates and fluctuations.
