Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Now i see results simillar to 126.96.36.199
IMHO, both these datacenters show much better results for the keywords I monitor.
My sandboxed sites got out yesterday in the 188.8.131.52 datacenter and today I notice that half of the pages (keyword combinations) are back in sandbox.
But what I was seeing yesterday at 184.108.40.206 seems to have switched over to 220.127.116.11 (where my entire sites are again out of sandbox and roaring)
So guys, if you want to check if you sites are outta sandbox, then 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 are the IPs to watch.
I also noticed a few other sandboxed sites (watching like a hawk, but not owned by me) fall down further on these IPs.
Was burried on Thursday, starting moving back up the SERPs on Friday. Made some modest changes to on page factors Friday. New page's now showing in the Cache and I'm higher than ever for my two main keyword phrases - from 2 or 3 to 1 worldwide. Plus, some residual phrases have moved up for the same page too?
Also, one of my longterm competitors is back too.
My changes or Googles?
One of my three sites is severely down accross
all pages since last Friday.
My other two sites are where they were.
Not too happy about this, since the site which is down has the most original content of all three and has been Googles "darlin" for years...
Perhaps this is a temporary hitch? Are we still dancing (yes, I still believe Google jigs from time to time)
or is this definitive now?
It really looks like they let some sites out of sandbox and put older sites in the sandbox, we are seeing this with one of ours
now wouldnt that be interesting?...if the sandbox organic filter was so deep it need its own mini data index to work...so you apply it retrospectively in groups as you gather the extra data that is required to be in permanent storage...of course you would start from the newest and by stage continue down to the oldest..yep!..the rippling efect of the sandbox organic filter....! watch this space...
Maybe some smiles would have helped ;).
For those who don't know frequently the sum of secondary keyword hits and thus income, readership, servers fees, etc ... can be higher than for the main targeted keyword. It is called diversity.
I realize that.
But would 51 pages with each one getting one referral except one that gets 100 also be diversifying?
Not if all your money was coming from the page with the 100 hits.
That is my read on the matter.

I'll be damnned. I now have 2 DMOZ listed sites nowhere to be found while 1 sandboxed site is eeking its way out. This does nothing to alleviate my frustrations with Google - actually makes them worse.

What the h-ll is going on? My old site is gone today! Finally I was doing good. I guess we should wait and see, I hope it isn;t over yet.
There's no way these results will stand: I just searched for a fairly popular search for my category and only the first 2 results belong there. Many of my competitors are missing as well.

Site is 10 months old.
With super-competitive terms the site is suppressed some but ranking near page 4 or 5.
Wow, I thought I would never get out. I now see what some people say about G being the biggest engine referral. It is still only morning time here and lots of referrals!

I really think google should get their act together, both MSN and Yahoo are showing us in the first page for same keyword.
Even –asdf is not showing us anymore..
#1 in MSN
#1 in Yahoo
#4 in Google
I've been in business for 6 years, I've always been #1 for "my company name". (Which is fairly unique)
Some sites that link to me using my name show up in positions 1,2,3 on Google.
How relevant is this? If I did a search for Wal-mart and got people who linked to them, is this a good SERP return?

I seriously hope these guys wake up, drink some Red Bull or whatever and fix this nonsense. From nowhere to #1 and then back to nowhere in just a few days. Almost 7 years-old site with close to 350 unique-domain links, many with "Mydomain.com" and not rank anywhere for that term? Hundreds of other links pages rank before my site. What kind of a joke is that?
hundreds of sites that link me, are ahead for "mydomain.com". Is this the sandbox? 6-7 year old site btw.
As much as I am happy for my two sites out of sandbox now, the same thing happened to one of my 4 year old authority whitehat site and I am completely baffled. The site is a huge subdomain of a main site and has what I can call 1000's of healthy one-way links. Interestingly the other subdomains are exactly where they were before. No ups or downs for them.
