    Hello Guys -

    I have been testing out our networks (see sig) on sandboxed websites and I'm looking for two people like you who may have sandboxed your website. I have tested our networks on a couple of sites (along with other linking tricks) and managed to push the sites out of a slap.

    Just to make sure its not a fluke I want two people who have a slapped site but they have to meet this criteria

    1: No dodgy sites, this includes porn or illegal stuff
    2: Must be sandboxed for a month at least
    3: Be willing to make some small changes to your site
    4: Be happy with not having reports
    5: Be someone who actually deserves it

    Don't PM me but leave a brief story of your site issue below and Ill pick two people randomly by 20:30 gmt Friday (16th March)

    My story is easy to understand but special.

    I bought a new domain. I had designed some pages, added some articles.

    When my site has being indexed by google, I noticed several subdomain and I mean dozens.

    All these subdomains was exactly like my site.

    After a few days, my site was dropped to nowhere on google or not in the top 500 but not banned.

    I wrote to my host to find out what the problem was, without telling me why he has corrected the problem.

    After all this, the only thing I did was to submit my site to statistics websites and bookmarks.

    I have tried some things but with no result.

    5 months in the sandbox and I still am, I'm tired of all this sand. :beach_pla

    I have a site here, emd.com for my chosen keyword that is aged 2 years but currently stuck on or around page 3 and has been for months now. Not sure if it's a penalty or sandbox but it keeps jumping to page 5 then back again and will not climb higher.

    It used to just sit directly underneath trademark.com then got slapped down to page 5.
    I totally removed the site and let it de-index then put it back up with new content where it was crawled again and settled around it's current position.

    I'm competing against trademark.com and know that it can position better but I believe Google has closed ranks and knocked it down a peg or two, maybe past SEO is to blame.

    I'm totally up for any solution that would get this site back up to it's former position and hopefully you will take it on as a project.

    Thanks for reading and looking forward to hearing from you sometime.

    Here is my story...

    I started a site about health and vitamins like 8 months ago, this site was doing pretty well, actually i was ranking for some very good keywords... i was using only socialbookmark submissions.

    The good thing about this website is that had very original content, videos and great images, great interlinking and amazing on page seo.... BUT!

    Yep i really exceeded my linking strategy using too but reall too much social bookmarks in few days, and BAM! all the work and money disapeared!

    My site nowhere to be found, i really try very hard to reestablish this site... but nothing, nothing seems to work for it.

    I resignated my self and just started again...

    The site is still in sandbox with incredible information, with lots of valuable pages...

    I don't know if a deserve to get this site out of the sandbox, but it will be nice to watch what could happened if this site could stay on top places for good keywords.

    i have a young emd <1 year old which i work hard to rank. I had at least 3 of the keywords on the top 10 serps [after using it with ALN], but i suddenly dropped to 500+. I have since the enrolled to a serp tracking subscription to monitor my keywords so i can give you at least a weeks historical data to help you with the experiment.

    heres the thread i made for that incident. im willing to share my tracking report for. the remaining three keywords i am tracking [ i removed the rest out of disappointment]

    My site is 5+ years old, e-commerce (education field), PR3 and we were recently were hit hard on Feb 17th by Panda 3.3.

    The main keyword we were raking for has dropped from #5 to #50. We track around 147 keywords phrases and most if not all have fallen to some degree, but not as bad as the main keyword.

    I received a message from google in my webmaster tools account telling me the site had irregular links or irregular link schemes pointed at our site. And yes, this is true so I am not going to try and defend that here. If you look at our back link profile, I am sure you will find what google saw.

    Onsite seo should be alright, but I am sure you could find plenty wrong with it.

    I am trying to get a bunch of the spammy links removed, this is not an easy task, but we have removed all high pr homepage backlinks as that was pretty easy. The private blog networks that we submitted our site to is most likely the source of the penalty, this is our best guess.

    Hey. Give my site a shot. I'm willing to try anything. I have a music education related site about 6 months old. Lots of content some original, some not so much. At beginning was ranking around page 3-4 for some super competitive keywords... 165,000 monthly global searches. Got sandboxed hard for all keywords went to position 600+ for all of them. Continued putting in more original and not so original content, super aggressive backilinking. 3 months later my site came back and I was #6 for the main keyword. I was extatic. Traffic went throught the roof. Adsense on overdrive, affiliate sales, everything I had been striving for. 5 days later back in the f@cking sandbox. All keywords gone from SERPs, but site is still indexed, with thousands of indexed backlinks.

    Help me please. This is real sandbox, not slap, or site having trouble moving up the ranks.

    Thanks,

    lesid1

    Have 3 sites that were ranking well, using article marketing. 2 health related and 1 fitness. The 2 health related have been sandboxed for about 5 months now, 1 of these is over a year old and the other just under a year. The fitness site just went down 2 weeks ago, and is over a year old.
    The results for each has been the same:
    I get them on page 1 for nearly every keyword in 6 weeks of work, then all of a sudden, banished to page 5 and beyond. Sites are still indexed in G. 2 of them maintain their PR, 1 of them down slightly.

    The linking strategy I've used with the 3 were bookmarks, link blog networks, and article sites, both manually and with AMR.

    I am currently getting some more content ready to post for each, and decided to refrain from backlinking.

    If you would like to use 1 of these sites, please let me know. I really need them back.

    Need some help! :(

    I have a tech site cum blog (adsense income) , which I developed for a year before starting active link building, doing very slow backlinks, site was on top of google (1st 2nd) for many of desired keywords. After sometime when I saw ranking are good I started Link Building campaign using AMR and SB and one fine day all ranks lost 40-50 spots, since then in never came back, it is about 1 year now.

    I am not sure if it fits your criteria or not but I would like to give it a try with your network (if you accepts)

    Hey There,

    I have an website which has been slapped about 3-4 months ago, I blasted some services on them and it had an very positive effect. I then got an review copy for some blog network and that was the end of my ranking. Everything dropped, at the moment I am changing the content on my site it doesn't have a lott of pages. I am rebuilding at the moment bought some articles, most still comming and doing some better on-site seo.

    I tried doing some seo myself which did not had an effect at all, I build articles and web2.0 and blasted them with Senuke and AMR and backlinked those using scrapebox... But nothing happened at all.. Kind of depressing.

    So im not sure if this is something for me. My site is an emd but it has an copyrighted word in it, like mcdonalds. Allready bought a new domain and thinking about doing a 301 redirect to the new domain.

    edit: site even is a pr2, but its not realy giving any trust so it looks...

    Well let me know what you think :)!

    Regards,

    Dollarzz
