    Hello,
    So let me first explain what I have done with my site:
    -On site SEO,
    -20 HIGH PR Blog posts,
    -Done press release and submit it to probuzz and some of different press release sites,
    -Manually done all tier 1 and tier 2 links,
    -Manually done web 2.0 links,
    -Create blogger and posting 1 post per week with backlinks,

    So now my site 220+ backlinks that can be seen on ahrefs backlink profile. The site is also indexed so that is not the problem.
    But Pro rank tracker can't track my site for any keyword (8 keywrods), its position is NTH or N/A.
    But the traffic is coming on the site. I am tracking it with Google Analytics.
    In one month I got 500 visits. Went from 0 visit per day to 50 visit per day avg. But the site is still not showing any improvements. I am waiting nor for 1 month.
    Can someone please tell me what else can I do, or I just need to wait. All my keywords are medium keywords.
    thanks to all :)

    If your site is new, it's probably Google Sandbox. The more competitive your niche, the longer it may stay there.

    Maybe you could explain further on your findings, or maybe you are just repeating drivel that you have read. I will go back to the Google sandbox several years ago. Your website was sandboxed, ie it was nowhere to be seen, not page two sandbox nonsense, not page four.

    My site is not new. I have bought expired domain so i don't think that is Google sandbox.

    You need more high quality and niche relevant links to rank higher.

    Check webmaster and see if there is any notification. By any chance, could the expired domain been penalized? Also you checked that ahrefs have 220 backlinks, these backlinks may come from the previous owner and not the backlinks you've created. Are all your backlinks indexed?

    if you domain is new you have to wait, somehow google does not update ranking too many times/year. And offcourse with 50 visits/day you won't get too high with it or don't expect get a high rank, but it should get something.
    just wait untill google updates sites rankings. As i've heared someone that know more about this, he said this year google is gonna update domain ranks at the end of the year. So just do whatever you do and continue backlinks and optimization and bringing traffic to get a higher rank.

    I Guess those 50 visits should be bots or from guys who sends spammy comments through seo tools with proxies.

    Like i said the site is new. Backlinks are all mine as I can see the date when they appeared on domain.
    The traffic is coming from press release sites and some from google.

    So I really don't know what is going on. I would also be happy if the site is on 200th position. Just to see that ranking is working :)

    expired doesnt mean it is old, if it has been dropped for a period of time and you recently register it, Google can value it as new site.

    How long since your pages were submitted to the index? A new page can take a couple of weeks or more before it appears in the serps. Indexing is instant but actually showing in the serps can take ages. On the other hand it can also be instant, especially exact match domains, but I've never had any luck getting in the serps quickly with non EMD.

    That's not what I said. I asked how long is it since you indexed it? Because from the time you indexed it, to the time you actually rank for a keyword can take a long time. 2 - 3 weeks or more. And the site being indexed is a different thing to the pages you are trying to rank for being indexed. Have you submitted each page or a sitemap? each new page can take the 2 - 3 weeks before they show in serps. You can rank very well for maydomain.com you could be ranked first for your keyword, but maydomain.com/brandnewpage.html may not even be indexed or if it is, then it can take a while to show in search for anything other than a direct search.

    Are all your 220+ links seen on ahrefs indexed on google?

    The site was indexed when i bought it. So I haven't submit it to index because it was already indexed.
