    I bought website of flippa last week, the site had about 70 backlinks (whitehat) was sitting around tenth for about 6 keywords.

    Thats when i saw the potential. was like ill get that too number one in a few days.

    Then! Gaypal f*cked my payment up. So the website was down for 2-4 days.

    Now it is sandboxed !! could the server be the reason?

    I know if its a new site and get too many links you get sandboxed. but this site is 2 year old pr3.

    Any idea's :)

    a) get professional hosting, yours suck
    b) give it time for a week or so, maybe it comes back up to normal
    c) direclty log into webmaster tools, verify the domain (if it's still verified from the previous owner -> get a new verification!) and check for problems.
    There you can also request a reconsideration if you really got sandboxed.
