    I have made a lens about less than a month ago, and I have always been checkiing how it ranks in the serps for a long tail KW I'm targetting. Usually rank in the 20th-30th page, but slowly climbing it.

    But today, I can't find it anyway in the serps, except if i search its URL.

    SO the question is, is my lens sandboxed?

    If it is, how long will it be in the serps?

    What should I do now? DO I keep building links?

    Right now, Yahoo site explorer states that I have 34 links from 8 domins, but i have more than that, just not yet indexed as back links yet.

    What should I do?

    Ive heard that if there is already a squidoo lens ranked for the keyword you are targeting then it would be very difficult to rank your squidoo lens.

    Have you checked if there is another lens already ranked?

    There are a ridiculous amount of sites google gives 'love' to just do a little research and I promise you'll find them.

    My lens was ranked for the long tail keyword I was targeting.

    As far as i know, google only give love to 2 squidoo lens for a KW, and my was the first one.

    This morning I couldn't find it anywhere in the serps EXCEPT when i google the lens' URL.

    Is this what you call being sandboxed?

    I heard that this could get for weeks, but when it finally shows up should be rank higher in the serps than before...

    Am I correct?

    What should I do now? DO I keep building links?

    Right now, Yahoo site explorer states that I have 34 links from 8 domains, but i have more than that, just not yet indexed as back links yet.

    What should I do?

    Thanks...

    Where's lewi? he knows things about squidoo....

    I aint sure we should hold on squidoo anymore. For me, I move on and don't bother with squidoo no more. It was raped to the ground and not much juice left.
