    I have a domain that's three and a half years old that I bought a few months ago. Content has been up for a couple of months now and around and it only had around 20 backlinks or so. Over the last three days I've down a few SB blasts of between 40-80 comments a day. A portion of these have been appearing in YSE the next day.

    Today I am unable to find my site in the top 1000 using Rank Tracker.

    Could be the dance and could be sandboxed, right?

    I was wondering, with so few backlinks being added in comparison to pretty much everyone else I read about on here, I'd be surprised if it was the sandbox.

    That made me think - I have Google Analytics installed on this site because I wanted to change it from automatically targeting the UK and aimed it at the US instead. At the moment I don't get any traffic to the site because it's never ranked high enough to be seen. I say I don't get any, but there are a load of IPs hitting my site but I assume they're bots and people checking my site because I've left them comments.

    Could Google be penalising me for adding these backlinks, even though they're relatively few, because it knows full well that nobody is actually visiting the site in the first place? Is it worth removing the tracking code for this website for a few weeks to see what happens or just continue to make a few backlinks as though nothing's happened? Maybe put up a little more content?

    Opinions please.

    EDIT: Should I consider using SB to ping my site a few times through a load of proxies to mimic traffic?

    I'm pretty sure that you can not get a sandbox for such a small blast and your website is old also. What was your previous rankings ?

    It was either 64 or 34, I can't remember now.

    I've added a new page to the site with a Youtube video and lowered my keyword density of the main page from 5% to 1.9% and will continue to add small amounts of backlinks.
