Postby jason » Mon Feb 19, 2007 9:15 am

Hi,
Can anyone help, I have been tring to get my sites ranking up by adding it to directories, forums, articles sites, relevent sites ect but google or alexa doesnt seem to notice. Does this take a long time to be detected or am I doing something wrong? Am i sandboxed? What does sandboxed mean?

All help would be much appriciated as im taking up hours to do this which I dont mind as long as im not wasting my time and I get some results eventually.

many thanks

Sandboxed means, the time that it takes for a new site to become searchable in Google. I think you should add more content to your site. It will help you to get higher ranking.

More content

Hi thanks,
my site has been here a while now so I dont think its sandboxed.
When you say " more content" do you mean more text on the homepage? I have hundreds of pages on the site but they are mainly addresses of UK Golf courses and links to other golf related sites such as Golf Holidays, Golf Equipment, Golf News etc.

Is it more text I need to add to my homepage to help my ranking?

Only by linking to other sites you can't get high ranking. You need to add more content to your home page as well as other pages within your site. And try to make some interlinks within those pages. It will help you to get better results.

I think your site is fine. You are not sandboxes and have 280 pages indexed in Google. The reason why you're not ranking is because you're competing with sites with a strong popularity that have been there for ages. I made a search for "UK golf courses" and saw a strong competition, and is difficult and takes a long time to overtake people that have been building the popularity over years.

Thanks for that! So basicaly I need to get as many links into mysite as possible?
I am re-designing the layout of the site and I will have it so the homepage will have text changes on it everyday, will this help the page ranking?

A listing in the Yahoo directory can help with getting a site out of the sandbox, that and plenty of other links (votes) as well.

If you add more text realated to your product or services on your home page it means no flash and less graphics then there is more chance to get good ranking in SERP.

If I'm not mistaken, sandbox doesn't exist anymore, because in my experience, my new sites ranked well in some competitive keywords and they stayed long. The secret is the content, and the quality of links.
