Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
You'd at least like to rank for your unique brand with a promo coming up.
I just need to get out of it. Just for my brand name at least.
And if you launch a site, and its gets press, and many authority sites in its industry publishes press with a link in it. How can that site now be sandboxed. OR penalized for getting to many links to quick at its launch.
From what I can tell, your site is still fairly new - with most of the content just a few months old, is that correct? In cases like that, it can take a bit of time for search engines to catch up with your content, and to learn to treat it appropriately. It's one thing to have a fantastic website, but search engines generally need a bit more to be able to confirm that, and to rank your site - your content - appropriately.
Any other links are natural that people have put on voucher sites and competition sites from competitions and promotions we've been running.
Don't believe everything you read.
