    Hello, I have an website with photography.

    My site uses SEO Search Taggings 2 from last winter. In March I've started building manually some backlinks on some high PR sites, made rss of the profile links, submit to rss directories and than pinged the rss. On 7 March (the next day) my site passed from first page on page seven. I continued the manual linkbuilding but now i rank on 20 page :). Today I've removed the SEO Search Tagging plugin and submited a reconsideration request.

    Is this sandbox or what ? How can i tell ? What to do next ?

    Sounds like your site is dancing to be honest, just give it time, keep building links and things will settle down.

    Build links to content pages as well as homepage. Helps make it look more natural. Don't over do it, just keep building at a nice steady pace for a while.

    keep build links and give it a couple of weeks before you judge your link building techniques

    It happens. Just continue building good quality links and add contents( If possible) and your site will be back in no time.

    I think you should continue your work on link building, I don't think it is sandboxed.

    My understanding is that if it were sandboxed then it would not show up at all i.e. de-indexed. This doesn't appear to be the case.

    I had a blog that disappeared around the same time. Although I was making some changes to it's layout at the time. Trying to get it back ranking again.

    I love dances, one of my sites went from #11 - #19 - #1 and now to #8.

    Very exciting :)

    There isn't such a thing as sandbox it's been covered quite a few times now.

    If your sites content is to similar to others they wont index you or they will rank you poorly.
