One of the most common questions I am asked is how I am able to take a brand new site into Google’s Top 5 for every keyword my site targets within 4-6 weeks of creating the site without getting sandboxed.
Time and time again I see panicked Buy Google Reviews webmasters screaming that their new site has disappeared from the Google results pages. Now sometimes there are obvious reasons why (such as using blackhat methods or mass posting via xRumer) but this doesn’t mean that you can’t build the number of powerful links you need to penetrate Google’s Top 5 or even the Top 3 without having to wait several months.
Now if you are new to SEO and you are unfamiliar with the Google sandbox then we are talking about what happens when your relatively new site that so far has been steadily climbing the rankings, suddenly drops back to page 10 of the results or beyond, or in some cases disappears from the Google search results pages entirely. The Google sandbox is particularly devastating as it can be 6 months to a year before the site recovers its rankings and in some cases a site never regains its rankings no matter how many backlinks you build to it.
So what does this mean for your SEO strategy?
For most people it means building links slowly to your new site and these links need to be low strength links with a high amount of trust in the eyes of Google. This includes getting your links from places where you need to submit original content such as article directories. Within the first 4 weeks of launching your site, large numbers of high pagerank links are out as they say, or are they?
