    I recently started a blog,

    I added some unique content in it (articles x5 over 700 words)

    I added some pictures in articles (crawled .... not mines)

    I had until yesterday 15 link indexed in google,

    I made only few backlinks (40 all from high PR but some were DO / NO Follow)

    And now my website URL is not anymore in google .......

    (i mean when i type mywebsite.com nothing is showing... 1 day ago it was)

    Anyone tell me what i did ?

    Is that mean im sandboxed ?

    Thanks

    Make your content unique specially main page and check through copyscape

    According to the sandbox effect, links which may normally be weighted by Google's ranking algorithm, not least improving the position of a webpage in Google's index, may be subjected to filtering to prevent their having a full impact. Some observations have suggested that two important factors for causing this filter to come into play are the active age of a domain, and the competitiveness of the keywords used in links.

    Active age of a domain should not be confused with the date of registration on a domain's WHOIS record, but instead refers to the time when Google first indexed pages on the domain. Keyword competitiveness refers to the search frequency of a word on Google search, with observation suggesting that the higher the search frequency of a word, the increasing likelihood that the sandbox filter effect will come into play.

    While the presence of the Google Sandbox has been long debated, Google has made no abject disclosure on the matter. However, as the sandbox effect almost certainly refers to a set of filters in play for anti-spam purposes, it is unlikely Google would ever provide details on the matter.

    Google has long been aware that its historical use of links as a "vote" for ranking web documents can be subject to manipulation, and stated such in its original IPO documentation. Over the years Google has filed a number of patents that seek to qualify or minimise the impact of such manipulation, which Google terms as "link spam".

    Link spam is primarily driven by self interested search engine optimizers attempt to manipulate Google's page ranking by creating lots of inbound links to a new web site from other web sites that they own. Some SEO experts also claim that the sandbox only applies to highly competitive or broad keyword phrases, and can be counteracted by targeting narrow, or so-called long-tail phrases.

    Well, it can't get you sandboxed, but it sure can get your website de-indexed depending on the content...

    Your site getting deindexed doesn't always necessarily equate to sandboxing

    I didn't read this thread at all, just the title.

    Poor grammar in headlines gets you sandboxed

    I understand your point for sure this post is not so usefull, but he is right when you build website in english you have to be good at it ...... you can outsource articles and other things but there's always some lines you cannot.....

    Hmm ok if a member experienced can give me his point that would be great,

    I can show you my website just post here and i will pm you my link ...

    Also i would just precise that i don't have adsense or any other affiliate link on my website so i really don't see why all my links have been deindexed....

    Thanks for all your reply.

    I was simply sticking up for you because his comment was rude... but your inconsiderate comment was incredibly rude.

    Pictures are hardly crawled by Google so I don't think they can get you into trouble. Use alt tag wherever there is a picture, and some good content will look nice.

    don't get me wrong, it very much was rude... but my intentions originally were there to help him, and he didn't recognize that.

    Oh well.
