Doubts And Sandbox
Posted 20 August 2006 - 10:05 AM
There is myth that lot of sites have to face sandbox.
What is sandbox?
It is a situation where you are ranked lower than you should be.
Is it unavoidable or it is triggered by suspicious behavior of websites itself?
Like using link networks which are created with the intention of spreading artifical links on other websites .e.g linkvault, x-href, coop network , linksdealing and many others.
If after one month of website launch i see my new website for fairly less competitive keywords on first page (top 10) of serp and it keep on raising in next few months but then i start to use link networks and my website still raises in rank which entices me more about using link networks and beleiving that it really works but then all of sudden Google updates come and i am pushed in 5-6th page of serp results for same keywords.
What reason is fairly reasonable to establish?
Is it penality?
It is unavoidable sandbox?
Or my website's suspicious behavior has triggered sandbox after 8-9 months?
Now suppose if i establish the reason then how should i can become good boy in eyes of Google once again?
by removing ad-network ads from my own website?
Or by avoiding other ad-network involved websites to link to my website?
Hopefully i'll get knowledgeful replies as usual.

I think aging delay issue is not applicable in my case because it was ranking good for first 8-9 months and now its ranking is dropped after ranking high in first ~9 months.
As i mentioned earlier ranking drop happened after ~9 months while sandbox mostly known affects in earlier months.
As i accepted that link networks my have caused this issue but important thing is that how to rank higher once again with clean hands.
One more point here!
How site could be pushed into sandbox if link networks link backs to the site?
Is it not opposite of what Google says that activity on other sites cannot harm your site?

My site which is very on very neat topic has been totally de-indexed on few datacenter after being thrown in lower rankings.
Only doubt in my mind is that it may be because of using link network ads on this site but now i have removed these ads.
Hopefully google will see it and rank me normally.
