    You just spent the "google-Honeymoon". You have to work now what do you belong. You told that you started your blog at July So you have to work from this month on Backlinks making, So that google rank you higher.

    You will not get traffic during the sandbox period after a initial traffic - this happens to almost all blogs.People have noticed that if links are built well during this period,you will start to rank well after coming out of sandbox.But do not build links aggressively since your blog is new.

    Thanks for your comments! I guess I used links in Signature and it gives many links, may be it create problems! I have got high rankings for many keywords within few days so I guess I am now enter in Sandbox world. ;)

    Does it will impact in PR Updates?

    What your experiencing right at this moment is definitely what they call "Sandbox". With regards to search engines this refers to the probation period that Google applies to new sites. The site will not rank well in the Google results until the period has passed. Although widely agreed upon, Google has not officially acknowledged the existence of the sand box.

    Don't lose hope ..... keep working on the site. Keep adding unique content + natural back-links.
    Your traffic will pick up slowly. However don't try anything spammy trick.

    You are in the sandbox, but not because of the links but because the freshness factor. Work on building your blog's credibility and things will look up eventually.

    Yes I am doing same! I got know that due to adding link in signature link on one of my forum where I have posted 10,100 post caused this problems! I am doing totally natural way and without Google traffic I am still able to manage 200 Uniques that's good for me as blog is just 15 days old!

    Hi,

    Does this mean that we should join more forum to get backlinks but not just concentrate on one forum? This may helps to get more useful and quality backlinks?

    Your blog, apparently, has NOT been sandboxed. I just checked it and its pages are still indexed by Google. It's probably just a ranking fluctuation. Google dance is normal, fyi. Don't get too concerned about it. Just keep on building quality links for your blog to get a more stable position.

    Yes I am getting some results now back in 100-150 position so it seems things are changing now once again! Although I have good ranking in Google Images and getting traffic from it. I am more shocked to see BING is giving me 30-40 hits from last 3 days.:eek: :D

    i have checked, your website is in google sandbox.
    May be you have done something to promote your website, which google considers as spamming.

    you can check www.[tech-digit].com in google. If your site doesn't comes on first page, it means it is under spam
