Did the press release submission get my site sandboxed?

    A month ago I got 175 press release submissions done for my over 2 year old cleaning business site. It was sitting on the very top of page 2 and I figure the press release should get me onto page 1. Much to my frustration and horror now the site is nowhere to be found. When it first disappeared I thought it must be the G-dance and would come back after a few weeks. It's well over a month now and the site is still in G-purgatory.

    The only other thing that was done was I built it out from a one page site to eight pages. I didn't do any other backlinking because I wanted to test the effectiveness of press releases by itself.

    Are press releases poison or it there something else going on? I'm baffled as hell.

    It seems very unlikely that one press release (175) could do this to your site

    I don't see how it could be from press releases. I am a big fan of press releases and never had a problem. They are excellent to use for a website. When you say that you got them done, who did them? Did you hire someone to do it or did you submit 175 press releases yourself? What press release service did you use? I'm a little confused how you did 175 of them in one month. Were the releases on 175 different topics? A reputable service wouldn't submit the same release 175 times.

    well if your site gone from google serp, try diversify your backlink it will get it back in a month or less.
