    Hi,

    I just checked my site with http://pixelgroove.com/serp/sandbox_checker/ and https://www.searchenginegenie.com/sandbox-checker.htm

    And both tools says my site is in sandbox which means Im in "Waiting period" and none of my sites are showing up on serps despite having around 150+ quality backlinks ( along with 36 blog posts ) my anchor profile is 26% for my main keyword and Im trying to rank one of my inner pages so www.url.c o m/aaa-aaa-aaa/ <- this one for example. My root domain has no backlinks to it and its fresh like 20 days old or something.

    I have around 8-10 articles every article checked with copyscape and they are all unique, also I have around 5-6 categories in menu which also has unique content and its a wordpress blog. The only thing I have copied are privacy policy and terms of service - I believe these are not checked by google right? Because everyone in the world has pretty much very similar privacy and terms - right?

    And today I checked my site with both these tools and they shows that my site is sandboxed, could someone help me out please? I really put a lot of work and money into this and I just don't understand what the f*** is this sandbox (I've read about it but these are speculations) and how can I get out of it?

    I didn't build any links with automated tools such as GSA. And also I have one more question how often should I publish articles? 1 or 2 times a week or it doesn't matter? And is there a tool with which I can check if my page is over-optimized? I checked keyword density andI have seo by yoast plugin and kw density is 1,8% yoast says its perfect I just don't understand what might be wrong.

    I also set my tags to no-index, my media files, archives etc. verything that could be duplicate content I've set to no-index, follow. Google has few pages with same content due to tags but I believe if I set them to no-index he will soon drop them off the index right? Also I'd like to say I've did everything to make it look really really good, the blog itself has very good theme from mythemeshop, connected my site to my facebook page with 170k likes and created google+ page with different gmail account that I created sites in the past, I bought some social media activity such as 140 google+, 2100 twitter retweets for my post, around 150 facebook shares most are natural.

    The page I want to rank is blackhat niche.

    Please help me out I'm really desperate to rank this site.

    it may be that the problem is something else

    150+ backlinks in 20 days is very unnatural i think

    You just have to wait 30-60 days, its no way around it.

    You know, it really doesn't sound like you're doing white hat SEO here.

    If your site got sandboxed from your shitty links, there's nothing you can really do about it really. Just wait it out and hope for the best, I guess.

    Try ranking for long tail keywords in the meantime.

    if your anchors are too heavy toward your search terms only thing you can do is either dissavow and wait it out, or build out your profile with quality links using naked url variants and generic terms as anchors to try dilute your overall profile down and wait it out to get released. hope this helps.

    just re read post, dude, you gotta get your primary anchors below 5% or id recommend doing so, seems any higher than that you start shooting yourself in the foot until you end up penalized triggering their new anchor tolerances, ie latest penguin standards. srry for dbl post.
