    I have a site that is about 10 weeks old right now, after about 3-4 weeks I was ranking # 8-10 for 4 keywords. I was doing 200 page scrapebox blasts about ever 3 days along with an article directory service that gives me about 20 links a day.

    On friday I blasted an auto approve scrapebox list that gave me 2500 backlinks, I checked my SERPS on sunday and I was ranking 3-4 for all 4 keywords. On monday I checked my SERPS again and I was no where to be found in the top 500. My question is what should I do now?? Should I continue doing 200 blog blasts every few days or stop blasting for now? Im thinking no more scrapebox and just let the article directory continue giving me 20 links a day.

    Suggestions?

    Are you sure you're sandboxed? I mean did you check whether G returns any results when searched for site:yourdomain.com then you're not sandboxed :)

    But even if you are sandboxed, try to keep building the links in your spare time while working on other projects. This will help when your site gets out of the box of sand :)

    Bk...

    Keep building links and Post new, fresh and unique articles on your site
    Also it you can get your website listed on some directories ( yahoo , Dmoz and others ) it will help .
    A unique IP should help as well
    just my 2 cents
    cheers

    sometimes it happens that one day you're in position #3, next day not in top 100. it just happens, why? - probably google dance. Dont check your ranking every day, the best way to know whether you got sandboxed - check rankings weekly, if no changes to your side, then it's sandbox

    I don't think your site sandboxed. Just google dance. Check again next week how strong your site is then

    Make sure you mix your linking strategy up. Diversity in seo is very very important. Blasting only blogs will give you short term gains if only used exclusively.

My site was ranking #6 in Google search for an acne KW but it is now gone, cannot find it anywhere but Yahoo and Bing. My site is 6 months old:confused::(

    From all the information I've read about being sandboxed just keep blasting and throw some fresh unique content on there. I've also heard it takes an average about 4-6 weeks to get out the sandbox but if you keep building you'll come out even better than before you were sandboxed.

    Were you building steady since you first put the site up? Or was it just sitting for awhile and then you blasted the shyt out of it?

    It can take 3-15 days for your rankings to come back, so it's possibly the google dance.

    Also, make sure you avoid duplicate content because of the new google algorithm they'll remove your rankings and it never returns.

    its some algorithm they have. most of it not all of googles ranking is automated, there are two things to this:

    one is to stop spam sites ranking fast.
    the other is can you do it to other sites? yes.
    thirdly it must return.

    you're most likely on page fucking 90 something.

    Its been almost 2.5 months now and this site its still sitting in the 500's for ranking. I also have no dupe content on this site, and im ashamed to admit I havnt addeding anymore content or backlinks to the site since i made this origional post.
