Do not Submit to Google if you do Not want to be Sandboxed!

by 12 comments

I just want to give a word of warning to you all about submitting to Google.

I recently created a website called:
Enoch Tan - Creator of Mind Reality

Many people have been searching my name "Enoch Tan" for more information about me, therefore I created that site specifically for that purpose.

After a few days, I noticed my site show up on the second page of Google for the search term "Enoch Tan". I made some changes to the title and body and then waited a few more days, but Google did not update the search engine listing of it yet.

So in order to expedite the process of getting Google bots to crawl my site again, for the first time in my life I submitted a site to Google which was that site.

Next thing I know the website is no longer found on the second page and when I search for the domain name itself, it even ranks on the last position out of 4 results!

I never entered into the Google Sandbox before for any of my other websites when I did not submit them to Google.


This explains the mystery of why certain new sites get sandboxed while others did not.

    One of the ways I am using to hopefully get my website into the top rankings once again faster is by creating a press release with keyword anchor text links to my site.

    I created a press release which was published today at PRWEB for $360.

    I'm looking to see if it would get my website out of the sandbox faster.

    I have also requested site reconsideration under Google Webmasters Tools beforehand.

    Hey Enoch,

    I don't think that it's wise to make such a sweeping statement
    because you have only your experience with one site to go on.

    Perhaps, a better approach is to state your problem and ask others
    to comment.

    When we make sweeping statements it can negatively impact newer
    IM'ers and give them an incorrect view....Don't you think?

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Haven't Posted in a long while, been off of the scene on IM even longer. Can anyone offer some advice as to where to get restarted? I've made some income from Fiverr in the past by writing review articles, not sure if Fiverr is still a good platform though. Any help would be greatly appreciate also more than willing to become an apprentice and work for the knowledge, not the money.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.
