---- Website attracting no traffic after 3 months (Sandbox?)
- 10:03 pm on Mar 6, 2012
Was the domain name EVER registered to anyone else?
Is the site in a bad neighborhood (are there lots of bad sites hosted on the same server)?
Who knows? It's hosted with Hostmonster in the USA.
does the site have the markings of a "legitimate" business? (Such as a physical street address, a phone number, etc.,)
It has similar details to most sites that I publish but in my experience there is no way that the absence of a physical address would incur a penalty. So many sites nowadays do not display an address.
and how does a site that only gets one or two visits a day get enough natural links to reach PR 4?
Probably because it has links from a couple of my other sites (on different host), which are PR5.
have you looked to see if anyone is building bad links to the site?
No evidence of this.
