It might be just a temporary glitch with one of google's datacenters - they don't have all identical data, and the replication sometimes creates such inconsistencies. That might happen more often especially for new domains which have lower priority for replication.
My site have never been to the SandBox, even I do not have unique content.
But one thing I have to make sure is I add it to google analytics and webmaster.
I've never promoted the site, I let Google find it from their analytic and webmaster.
I will keep checking the cache, if my new site get Google cached more than 2 times, then I good to go with more link building.
that's my 2 cent!
I've had a issue recently where my site looked to get a penalty straight off the bat,
I have the Keyword.com domain and I was stucturing my site adding pages and then going to add content later.
I think the pages got spidered beofre i added the content and my site went from 15-300 and has sat there ever since.
Not sure if google didn't see content the first time and just thought it was a spam site?
Its funny i came across this thread, I have a site that is in the same situation. I created the site with almost 15 articles 300 to 400 words each all unique. Its a long tail domain with more or less a lower amount of searches with little competition. All my pages are indexed but none are showing up in the top 1000 searches. I didnt have adsense but it is on the same ip as another site that i ended up getting sandboxed by what I believed is too many links.
Does the sites have their own ip?
It happened once with me even without making links i got sandboxed,but 1 month later it come back..
Keep us posted â”¼blackratâ”¼ I'm thinking about submitting a reconsideration 2 and Id love to hear how you went!!
maybe google has just not decided what to do with your site. happens at the start all the time for me
I feel safer NOT using Google services too. But I miss GWT's site geo targeting badly.
How do you rank in Google Canada when you can't buy a .ca domain and hosting?
You can influence your rankings for your sites with proper SEO(on-page factors) and SEP(off-page factors).
When you changed the header, did you change the description? That can make the site bounce around in the SERPs for a few weeks I have found.
Wouldn't it be much harder to build more Canadian backlinks instead of just setting the geo targeting option inside GWT to Canada?
@ OP - one of my sites just came back from the sandbox (or whatever).
It was ranking nowhere in the SERP for more than a month.
I was publishing new content on it but not building links.
Today it's back and ranking N1 in Google.
If it's a site that you know will not be a problem to put GWT on, then it will probably be easier.
With that said you don't just need backlinks from the place you want to ranki in. You could without any in a lot of cases.
It's all about how your site's setup, the content, and your backlinks and anchor text. That's why I said SEO and SEP.
Built a couple of profiles directly to both sites and pinged them. Now they rank, not as I thought they should(4th and 5th pages), but at least now I got results to see so I can measure the backlinking efforts.
My policy was to only build links after the websites were ranked naturally by the content and natural wordpress pings, but this case has proven to be necessary to do it the other way around(this time)...
And maybe, god only knows, the reconsideration I sent had something to do with the sites reappearing in the serps.
Thanks to everyone who shared their knowledge here.
This is really good advice. When I first started it was one of those things that I just did instinctively -- you always want to stay under the radar, so don't use google webmaster or analytics and don't post ads all over the site when you first launch it.
Glad to see you're back in business â”¼blackratâ”¼
