Hi all, I have both branded domain. 1 is .com, another is country tld. com is registered in 2014 and country tld is registered in 2016. Country TLD using nulled themes have hidden links- resulting in "the website is banned" error which caused manual action spam ban from google. Around 6 months ago, the manual action spam is removed. Until now, I still not ranking for any money keywords and not even the 1st for my branded keyword. For branded keywords, my .com is ranked 1st (without building any links). Country TLD is ranking at pos 6. The other ranked pos. for my branded keyword is my local citations. For my country tld, i have been creating backlinks such as local citations, forums posts, blog comments etc. Currently, at least 100+ backlinks. However, why i am still not ranked 1st for my branded keywords and not ranking at my money kw at all? For other very low competitive keywords- e.g. 3 words kw, ranking in top 10 pos (even during and after manual action spam from google). Can I ask if the manual action ban (even though removed) cause my website or what being sandbox or what?
