I have a few new blogs and no matter what I do never move up in the ranks. In fact some don’t even rank for their domain names. So I started doing some research and started down they backlinks road, then eventually learned of the Google Sandbox. A penalty that google slaps on many new sites. So people say it exists other say it’s a myth. I think I’m a believer in the Sandbox.
I have provided a link below to see if your site might be in the Sandbox.
