Quick facts. I put up a brand new domain August 9th. Wordpress platform, site map. Google has only "indexed" 25% of my images and 35% of my articles. No SERP traffic.

I continue to read here about a Sandbox-like effect for new sites (I know, there is no such thing as a sandbox, maybe a bandsox).

A post from May this year had one member saying his new domain finally started seeing some Google traffic, it looks to be permanent.

What I did not see from any of the replies on the post was a time frame. My new domain site has been up for four months. I have decent links about 200, none exact match anchor text, most naked urls, branded with site name, or innoculous words related to content...so no problem with Penguin.

Can I please get some time frames from members with new sites?

I'd more than happy to put the site away for a year if I knew nothing was going to happen for a year. No sense wasting my time etc.

I see that lucy24 has beaten me to a more detailed reply. At the risk of redundancy, here's a longer reply with yet more details....

Where's the quote button?
itsjustme2, it's not just you. If you use the "Quick Reply" window, which many members do, you'll never find any of the editing features of the forum. ;)

Try the "Post Reply" window, which is accessed by a button under the Quick Reply window. It's helpful to right-click on this button to open up the full edit window in another tab.

You'll see that the forums support a bunch of "bbcode" features, based on HTML, and in this window there are several ways to use them....

Hand code, in which case you might want to refer to the syntax, which can be accessed via the several "HTML Style Code" links scattered around the Reply text window, but are found nowhere else on the forum.

Here's also a link to the Special Text help documentation... [webmasterworld.com...] ...I wouldn't be surprised if some of it is out of date.

Or...

- Use the Edit buttons in the Post Reply window, which essentially apply BBcode styles to text in your edit window that you've highlighted.

Note re quotes that individual messages are not addressable on the forums here. You need to copy and paste the text from the message you want to quote into the message body area, then highlight that text and click the "quote" button.

The syntax of our quotes is the same as blockquote in HTML, but using square brackets. Note that links at the end of a BB blockquote need a carriage return (line-break) character before the closing quote tag, or the link will break. Spaces before the closing quote tag alone will not suffice.

I recommend always viewing with "Preview" before hitting "Submit". I even recommend testing your links.

Can also get to the formatting screen by hitting Preview under the quick reply.

Robert C. Thanks....Works perfectly. At first I could not figure out how to quote because when you press the "Post Reply" button, the messages in the thread all vanish. Open a new window, and voila, UR good to go.

Re your wordpress site. Do you have canonical tags set up?

If you have 60% of your pages noindexed that could be part of the problem (navigation interrupted) regardless of what the sitemap says.

Also 310 redirects loose juice with every 301 the link goes through.
