So why is SearchMasters ranking so low on Google.com?
It is basically TIME. It takes time for Google to rank you on various engines. It lets you up the ranks slowly, even though you may deserve to rank higher. Obviously the sandbox period is less on the country specific engines. SearchMasters was first online around September 2006 meaning it has been online around 11 months. That is a long sandbox period for Google.com.
What other possible reasons could there be for the Google.com sandbox period?
- Is Google looking at the number of NZ incoming links as compared to .com links? I don't have that many .com or other international links into the Time2Dine page, but I do have many international incomings
- My Time2Dine site is a .co.nz, so its not that it is ranking .com sites higher on Google.com
