Is this the sandbox?

Post by MiscThing »

:? Hello
I am some what new to SEO and google optimization, could somebody please explain to me why my site and links do not show up in google link searches unless I add a space between the command and the search target? :?: Did I miss something in my haste to learn about SEO techniques?

Take a look at my site. I have seen this happen with other sites that claim to be in a sandbox, while searching for answers in other forums only to find that they are listed with a space added infront of the target search.

When I search using the following google says I have no link popularity ( :( Boo Hoo no friends) ... tnG=Search

Now try adding the space between link: and the search target in this case ... tnG=Search

Google says I have 42 links ( :D Hoorrrray friends)

(Moderator if these url posts are considered inapproriate please remove)

I have noticed this happen while using as well. 0 google link popularity then add the space and google shows the links.

Again, I ask the question, could somebody please explain this to me or direct me to a location that explains this? Is this a google anomoly? Does google affect keyword searches in the same way?

Thanks in advance

Yes that is right. SERPs depend on too many factors actually. They usually love to display sites with high backlinks. That is my opinion.
