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.
