    Hey all!

    I have been building an authority site. By authority means I have built a site with 3 pages depth, maintaining a blog with quality post (up to 2,000 words per post - real in-depth writings), made a free tool for people to use, write product review and interviews, doing a lot of twitter marketing, genuine blogger outreach etc.

    After a year, I realise that the site is in sandbox, I'm tracking the site with RankRanger and there is this search visibility being tracked. I realise the site is always capped at 60, and all ranking of pages will never surpass #20 (with brand name excepted)

    I checked in Google webmaster tool and found out that the crawl rate is not very appealing for the past 90 days. See the screenshot below.

    My question is, is there any tricks that you know that can escalate the sandbox-process? Or if you think there may be some stupid mistake that I'm making, please kindly point out.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Are you building backlinks to the site?

    3 months is the maximum I have noticed while building a website. Like the guy above said, are you building backlinks to the site? I guess your answer is going to be YES. And you need to build more... Diversify your link building if you have not done that already. Natural blooger outreach is good. But google needs more.

    If you are building backlinks to the site which I expect, I suggest you check your keyword density before doing anything at all...

    Yes I build link to the site but at minimum rate. I focus entirely on quality links. Majestic stats show (root domain) 2.8k links from 95 domains, with TF 31, CF 26. For KW density 45% are other anchors, 10% on brand name, and others all not focused KW.

    Blogger outreach is great but I failed to scale to quickly, and the paid one needs so much funding. What kind of links do you suggest me getting?

    Diversify your backlink profile. Meaning web 2.0s, social bookmarks, contextual links, social media, blog posts, forum links, etc. Minimize your keyword density, 45% is a bit high in my experience.

    lmao another shitty "SEO expert" who can't rank a site and blames the non-existent sandbox.

    ??? did I claim to be an expert?? Perhaps your comment is hinting you need some ego boost?

    OP is obviously not claiming to be an expert and is asking quite politely and humbly IMO...
