Domain age: 3 months
Page age: 2 and half months (this is the age of the page I am trying to rank)
Keyword detail: 5 words keyword like "blue widget colleges in country"
Pages which ranking for this keyword don't have more than 10 backlinks and maximum PR on the top 10 results is PR 3.
I have done the basic on page optimization and also providing the unique and quality content.
I have build some good links like (high PR blog commenting, got 1 link from wikipedia with the same anchor text, guest posts on 3 high pr blogs)
Point To Note: After 4 to 5 days of posting this article, I check the SERP's and found that I was ranking on the 3rd page, I didnt build any link to this artcile then.
Since this keyword got around 3k searches per month and keeping this in mind I started building backlinks and found within a week I found that I was not even ranking within to 100 results.
I continued and build some more backlinks and waited for few more days but nothing happened.
Now, Its been two months and I am still not within top 100 results of Google, however my root domain is on page 11 for that keyword and it is ranking there just because I have that post on the home page sidebar thats why Google showing "that keyword in the description"
I have heard that there is nothing like sandbox these days thats why I am little nervous as I am also noticing that Google is not ranking any of my pages, my pages are getting indexed within a few minutes but they r not ranking.
Kindly share your experience & suggestion about this problem.
