Good Morning, I recently purchased a service on here for some backlinks. Immediately after the links were indexed my site went from page 1 to page 500+ for it's brand keyword. This is what made me think i was in the sandbox. It appeared that they were punishing my homepage, because it was nowhere to be found anywhere. I was a sad panda I didn't know what to do, but after seeing no ranking changes at all for 3 weeks i decided to get rid of those links! It was the only possible answer. Well, i woke up this morning to my site doing better then ever. It's on Page 1 for stuff it wasn't before, and on page 3 for very competitive keywords. The moral of the story is, wait, even when you don't see a silver lining there is one. The sandbox and the dance are the same thing. It's just you go from one to the other.
