    hi,
    Sandbox is a filter affect that Google places on new domains to stop the website from high rankings for the main keywords.If your website does not appear in any SERPS for your target list of keywords, or if your results are highly depressing (ranked somewhere on the 40 th page) even if you have lots of inbound links and almost-perfect on-page optimization, then your website has been Sandboxed.

    There are many different opinions about it, including the view that the Sandbox Effect doesn't actually exist or not.
    But i say, yes it really exist,

    Webmasters have claimed that their site will only show for keywords that are not competitive. It appears this effect does not affect new pages unless the domain is in the sandbox.

    Finding out if your website is ‘Sandboxed' is quite simple. If your website does not appear in any SERPS for your target list of keywords, or if your results are highly depressing (ranked somewhere on the 40 th page) even if you have lots of inbound links and almost-perfect on-page optimization, then your website has been Sandboxed.

    Is there a completely objective test to see if a site or page is "in the sandbox"? No there isn't. If you think you have a truly objective test, which is able to discriminate "sandboxed" sites from sites that are just poorly optimised, I'd love to hear about it.

    As you'll see in the many threads on this subject, most of the suggestions are along the lines of "if you do x and get result y your site MIGHT be in the sandbox". "might" and "maybe" aren't good enough - if it exists, why isn't there a sure-fire test that gives a clear yes/no answer.

    And if there is so much uncertainty about such a test, how come there are so many people making firm claims about what happened to their site after it went in/out of the sandbox? If the in/out question is largely guesswork, is it a surprise there's so much misinformation on this subject?

    So it not a fact that all new sites start in the sandbox? I was hoping that's why my new site has low traffic, and that when i got out I would see a flood of page views.

    I certainly don't think that all sites begin life in the sandbox, I'm more inclined to think that its a filter which appears if there is "too much too soon"...

    If you do not understand how Google works you will end up believing that it exists.

    If your keyword has over 1.5 million results it will take time for a static page to work its way to the top, but that doesn't mean you are stuck in sand.

    There is allot of controversy out there whether the sandbox actually exists or not..I think to an extent it does and yes, it normally does hit new websites. Pagerank has nothing to do with the sandbox and any new website you start (unless it previously had a PR) is going to be a PR0. Pagerank is consisted entirely by the links that point back to your site, this does not have anything to do with the sandbox. I believe site's are put into the sandbox for a couple of reasons:
    A. A new site is started and google crawls it. Traffic starts being sent to that site to give the owner a taste of what Google can do for it and it is then put into the sandbox to see what the webmaster does to gain its ranking back (does the webmaster add new content, does the webmaster start to build quality backlinks to it, does the webmaster notice this traffic and start to perform black hat or spam techniques?) From this information google can determine if this site is worth being read by its visitors and is worth being ranked. It then comes out of the sandbox or is banned/hidden forever.
    B. Google notices a number of changes being done in a short period of time, this could show possible spam attempts to rank high for specific keyphrases (constant title, content, or tag changes). Google puts the site in sandbox as some sort of penalty or to see if this kind of activity continues. If the activity stops after a certain amount of time the site is put back into the rankings and starts receiving traffic again.

    I'm not exactly sure on these possibilities and even to this day am not sure if the sandbox actually exists. This is just my theories and what I believe. I have worked on a number of site's that were new where they received traffic right off the back, then lost the traffic, then a month or two later traffic returned and was better than before. So overall, I guess I do somewhat believe in the sandbox theory.

    Generally google sandboxes the entire domain and not a single page just to make sure that new and young domains do not get undue share for the SERP for a highly competitive keyword. I hope the sticky on sand box will throw more light on your question about how to get out of sandbox?

    With most things is SEO I have learned if it is duplicative then it works. This is a scientific approach. We have launched 6 website and none of them every got stuck in a sandbox. So that all the evidence that I need.
