    I have the following issue :

    - my domain name is the same as my keyword #1
    Google doesn't index me at all while in yahoo I'm #1 for this KW and #4 in Bing.
    Still I don't get organic traffic. Is it google the only engine people use as I don't have clicks from yahoo or Bing ????

    What is the best way to check if I've been sandboxed ?
    I can PM u my site url ... I will appreciate your help mates

    In google, search site:domain.com to see if google has even indexed your site.. If it's been around for awhile and nothing comes up, you've probably been kicked out of it.

    As the the lack of traffic, that usually happens when you've picked a keyword that people simply don't do all that many searches for. And then if your title etc. is unappealing that can cut way down on any potential traffic as well.

    I had a site that was #1 for a term and adwords said it was supposed to get something like 2000 searches a month.. I got barely any traffic.. Shit like that happens.

    Actually I can find it when I put my domain name, but this is not the game. It should be found on my KWs. My alexa is ~2000 000 so it's not lack of traffic ... and beleive me my KWs are ones of the searched Do you want me to pm u the url and tell what might go wrong

    ...how old is the domain, and are you saying Google is not indexing your pages or Google is indexing but you dont rank? (how many pages are indexed?)

    If you have a Google Plus account post a link to a not competitive page with a not competitive phrase, that should be in Google search within 24 hours, see how that page ranks if it doesnt you are in trouble if it does that you have probably to work on more links, better on page optimization etc...

    Give proper Information.

    if you have rich keyword domain it does not mean you should be at google first page.

    what about backlinking and promotions? how much have you did ?

    OK here is why I'm concerned for my KW #2 I was on page 19 when using G UK , but now I can't find my url even on page 40 which is weird to me. I have about 500 backlinks , FB site, Tw site, posts in reddit, digg ....
    And as I mentioned above in Yahoo and Bing for my KW #1 , which is my domain Im on page 1 and G doesn't rank me even for 20 pages . Something is wrong ...

    ...i had a quick look at your main page, did you had a look at your website via google cache (text onlyß) your front exsists just of photos not text, starting with alt tag would be a start... cause all google knows is basically
    Code:
    delete 									 									1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)
    
     Loading ... Loading ...

    Thank you buddy, yes this is pictures site I guess this WP theme is not the best because it uses images as backgrounds of a div section as there is no way to setup an alt atribute . How can I put more text on such a site ?

    I have to figure out a way to convert this div image backgrounds into real images. I don't know if it's going to be easy to edit the theme though ..

    ...i am not a coder but i am pretty sure there are ways to alter that theme, for the right person this is probably a less than an hour job for little money. If you are not a coder your self there are several freelance outlets that will have those experienced coder available...

    cool, but please dont think that this will solve all your issues, but its a good start, maybe if you can make it possible to have below the image space for one sentence that would really make a difference. The usual "get links the fast and the painful way, utilize social media and keep on working on your content" still applies of course ;) ...

    good luck

    yes, definitely I'm gonna try to improve this theme as I like it . Basically I'm trying to find auto approve comments blogs and posting in some popular bookmarking sites, I guess adding some more text would boost me up a little.

    Just because you got keyword in domain doesn't mean it will rank on first page. Lets take basic example... We pick some keyword on which there is no site and then book every major tld which is definitely more then 10... Now not every domain is gonna come up on 1st page no matter how much effort you put in... So relax just because it's not on first page with your keyword doesn't mean anything wrong with it...

    Now important thing is you need to work on site (on page and off page) to pull it to first page ranking...

    Also keyword tools mostly show wrong data so check several before deciding which ones you are going to use... Google controls 70% search volume world wide, in some categories even more... LOL my personal experience that Google controls more then what these studies show because I have same experience when even on 10th rank Google brings more visitors then 1st rank Yahoo or Bing...

    I totally agree with u about "Google controls more then what these studies show because I have same experience when even on 10th rank Google brings more visitors then 1st rank Yahoo or Bing" . But you didn't get me right - I don't expect to be on page 1 for my KWs as the niche is highly competitive. My concern is that after I optimized some pages from page 19 I dropped somewhere I don't know where .... i thought i was sandboxed and just wondering what are the symptoms when u got sandboxed
