    I usually buy used (with website history) domains with 5-10 years of age for the somewhat bigger sites I want to make.

    Since I always buy more domains then I can make websites I tend to setup the domain anyway with a default wp installation and 2 pages of content ( welcome etc.. ).

    I do this because personally I am a believer that domains with a website history rank better.

    The problem :
    I started working yesterday on a website of a 11 year old domain which i am hosting myself now for aprox 4-5 months and noticed today that the domain/site is sandboxed. It has not been indexed at all.

    There are no strange backlinks , there are actually only a dozen backlinks in total.
    The site is not in Webmaster Tools, not using analytics, not monetized in anyway yet.

    Since I am still building up the website it is not a great loss yet, but I really would like to come out of the sandbox within 2-3 weeks.

    Feel free to throw any suggestions which you might have.

    Thanks

    I watched the video and I wonder if there is something else I can do without putting my site into webmasters tool ?
