How long can google sandbox last

Discussion in 'Google' started by Max2000, Feb 21, 2017.

    Hi,

    So I have website which will be 6 months old soon.

    I posted almost 50 blog articles but get extremely low traffic as I don't appear for just about any keyword on google front page. So I am guessing I am stuck in sandbox.

    My niche is banking related.

    Anyone knows how long can google sandbox last at most. It is getting a little bit frustrating.

    Thanks

    I am confused here. First, I did not know Google had a sandbox. Second, if they do, why are you in the sandbox since nothing in a sandbox will ever get indexed? Third, to answer your title question, FOREVER.

    What about your backlinks profile? If you optimize on-page seo that's great but if you want to get good amount of visitors from Google you'll need good off-page seo such as good backlinks profile.
    Also Google sandbox may last 2-3 or even 6 months I think your problem is lack of quality backlinks, not sandbox because with sandbox you still should be getting some visitors

    The website is still new and it is not just posting blog articles to get traffic and rank. You need to study your website's behavior from the users using GA to see that your pages really engage. Sandbox has nothing to with your problem.

    So yeh - you could be sandboxed (it is possible) as a new site, seems like google are holding onto new sites more aggressively recently.

    Your only way out is to increase your backlink profile, and boost your TF & CF ratings (you can check these on majestic.com, which will also show your backlink profile free of charge).

    It is possible that to rank for your chosen keywords you need to have a TF/CF that is equal to or higher than your competitors - so in a very competitive keyword you would need a flipping lot of backlinks to get ranked, but for a less competitive keyword you would be able to rank with lower TF/CF ratings (hope that makes sense).

    You can check how competitive the keywords you are using are with tools like longtailpro (not sure if there are free options that will assess this for you).

    First steps would be to go to majestic & see what your technical scores are / existing backlink profile & go from there.

    Hope that helps - Matt
