After 4 Months
4 Months after starting a website

Hello Webmasterworld,

I was just confused and want to know if I'm doing it right.

I've started a brand new Blog with brand new domain, and it is now 4 months old. Now, Google Sandbox[I don't know if its real or not] thing is starting to tickle me.

After 4 months, I'm receiving anywhere from 130-150 organic visitors from Google Search and other 30-50 from direct & social referrals.

I've got an Alexa ranking of 270K and 30-40 backlinks. I'm writing 2 articles per day and publishing them at regular intervals.

As per links, I'm not asking for any links and I'm not giving any.

::::::Things I'm not doing:::::::
No advertising whatsoever.
No guest posting to get some backlinks.
No black hat SEO or Over optimization.

So, My question is... Am I doing fine? or Should I improve? or Is there anything wrong with my approach? or Is my blog sandboxed by Google?

I know these are too many questions, but these questions are bugging me from day 60.

Hello vamhh and welcome to WebmasterWorld forums. A few questions back - Why do you think it is "Sandboxed"? Do you have messages in GWT? It is very normal for new sites to get good SE position that goes away after the quick "honeymoon" is over. Alexa ranking is not an indicator of anything that matters.

You mention that it has no advertising, do you sell any products via the blog or is it strictly your personal interests? If it is strictly personal, just try to inform, share and enjoy it and don't worry about how and where you are ranking. Post when you have something to share.

Should you improve? Always. There is a lot to learn about managing your site and keeping your content online and the more you learn, the more you find to learn and share.

This is what you like to see with a new site: steady growth. Natural, multiplying, over the next few months. A solid start with a good path to longevity and eventual authority. Keep doing what you are doing. Don't be seduced by short cuts as those will hurt more in the end.

And welcome to WWM!

It all sounds good to me. Keep publishing good content and work on using social media to bring in more traffic.

Yes, spamming blogs will build links.

Must be an important hot topic as lots of new users seem to be interested.
