Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
If you don't believe in the sanbox there are other threads to argue about that, keep it out of this one please.
Now i see results simillar to 22.214.171.124
IMHO, both these datacenters show much better results for the keywords I monitor.
My sandboxed sites got out yesterday in the 126.96.36.199 datacenter and today I notice that half of the pages (keyword combinations) are back in sandbox.
But what I was seeing yesterday at 188.8.131.52 seems to have switched over to 184.108.40.206 (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 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 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.
And finally as I mentioned in above post, my sandboxed sites have made it to the main www.google.com site, for now.
This lasted about a week. I woke up today to discover that I'm back in the sandbox again.
I use this simple test: Pre Sept. 23rd, and for about a week this month if I typed in: [My Unique Biz Name Keyword1 Keyword2] I would be #1. When in the sandbox, when I type these words I'm nowhere to be found. As of today, I'm nowhere to be found again.
I don't even come up for the unique business name this morning. I do see other sites' link pages with a link to my site coming up, but not my site.
What is Google's problem?
Now on my knees begging that it will hold.. worrysome stories about this out and in from Rollo, so to early to open the champagne, but I've put it in the cold at least...
END of SANDBOX
was checking my Google Ranking today for a 8 months old commercial site which was always at page 10 to 20 and surprised to found it ranked at the top 10 for most of my targeted (competitive) Keywords.
Have to ditto those results. Our site pretty much tanked in google serps (for stongest keyphrases)about end of Feb/early March last year (site ranked at page 10+ down from top 10). Now ranking in top ten for all major relevant keywords (about 2mil results).
Interestingly enough...these serps look almost exactly like the results I was getting using the "allinanchor:" for the last few months...
How many search results are we talking about for those people that made it out of the sandbox?
Keyword 1 - 15th out of 5,910,000 results [not in top 1000 before]
Keyword 2 - 10th out of 8,120,000 [not in top 1000 before]
Keyword 3 - 40th out of 17,500,000 [not in top 1000 before]
... and a bunch like that. For mulitudes of keywords, the site appears in top 10 including 1st position for a lot of them. Same for other sites.
I bet linking to all those banned sites pissed google off. Hopefully my site will start to climb to the top, I'm really mad I didn't check this before or I'm certain my site would be at the top right now.
Site was suppressed for 10 months!
Just found it interesting, am I a single case here? I am surprised that no one else is posting?
