    My rankings have steadied on all of my main keywords for 12 days, I have 10 web 2.0s that I built, 9 have a tier 2 of backlinks, some are expired tumblr's with backlinks already.

    Main keyword has gone from about 150 to 25, but stuck at mid twenties for 12 days. Other keywords have gone from 60 to 20 since I started the web 2.0s a month ago.

    Site is 60 days old, am I being sandboxed or do I ned more web 2.0s?

    I have built other links apart from web 2.0s, according to GWT I have 33 unique domains as links. Keywords are easy to medium, nothing over a kc of 32.

    I'm a novice at SEO and building backlinks. My main website is a travel blog about obscure temples and floating markets in Thailand, never done any SEO to it in 18 months.

    What he means is that the sandbox was a very old "thing" Google used back in the day. (We're talking up to 2010 here)

    Whatever you do, it's gonna take a few months to get going in the serps with a new site. Call it sandbox, call it fluffy purple earrings if you want, it just takes time!

    But why? ...
    I would be happy with the results in your case providing the little linkbuilding and effort you put into.

    How high is the competition for your keyword(s)? Where do you take that 32 KC from? I hope not LTP?

    Don't believe everything you read on the Internet. 99.999% of those blogs you read are written by penniless clueless kids and outright retards like Charlie Floate.

    Interesting I'm on the same boat as you. I've ranked a site that was on 150+ possition to 20-ish on most of my keywords with 10-15 web 2.0's and from 2 weeks NO movement. No ups, no downs. Very strange.

    You call it sandbox or any box, but new sites with new links, takes a bit of time. Have patience and carefully build more links.

    Yes, from LTP, but I checked on keysearch.co and it's the same scores.
    Kw 1 40500 us, kc 32, position 25
    kw 2, 8100 us, kc 30, position 30
    kw 3, 2900 us, kc 25, position 18
    kw 4, 2900 us, kc 23, position 19

    The products are from $30 to $80, had 18 sales in 2 months, but the commissions are low from Amazon. I want to flip the site asap, but need page 1 to get a decent amount for it.

    It's annoying as I don't know whether to build more or strengthen the web 2.0s I've built or wait?

    Listen, it's been a little while but now ranking takes a bit to update, I had been doing link building to a specific keyword that's 50k searches per month, for three months.. it was around 100, then jumped to 30.. stayed there for two months.. just about a week ago it jumped to 11, so I'm doing more link building to it and a lot of other pages that did the same thing..

    It takes a while now for things to get moving.
