    Does Google Sandbox really exists?

    Some people believe that there's something called Google sand box, and some people don't believe it. Me too consider it as a myth but lets talk about Google sand box here.
    Do it really exists ? if you think so, why ?

    I think there's no sand box, but no reason for me to believe so !! I wanna know what do you guys think about GOOGLE SAND BOX with some brief explanation if possible.

    sandbox is like a jail for website. If you break the google rules, then your site will put this place. The indicator is you don't found your site indexed in google search result.

    But I have read there's no sandbox and its a myth. Some SEO experts also told me that there's no Google sandbox. What is correct exactly ?

    Sandbox is a complete myth. None of the Google representatives ever confirmed its existence, not even in 2005 when the issue was really hyped.

    The sandbox doesn't exist. Rather there are penalties and filters that when applied make it appear as if the website has been "sandboxed".

    The thing that people need to understand about "the Sandbox" is that it's not a place that all sites go to grow up. It's a concept that people have jumped on to explain what's actually the development of a higher level of judgment on Google's part. In theory, it provides an easy explanation for the trouble that people have suddenly had in getting new sites ranked. In reality, it just shows that the industry is growing up and that search engine algorithms are growing up with it.

    LOL. I was one of those in my backyard! However, I personally don't think that it exists. I have been doing IM and SEO for 7-8 years and I have never seen any evidence of it other than the occasional rumor.

    I think it does not exist more than what Nemanja has demonstrated as no one has really experienced it. But overall the hype is really good to refrain people from stepping over the line.

    Found 1 articles that really good about google sandbox.

    The Google Sandbox is supposed to be a filter placed on new websites which is proving controversial. It is alleged that a site fails to receive good rankings for its rich keywords and keyword phrases. Strangely, even websites with well presented content, plenty of incoming links and strong Google page rank, are adversely affected by the Google Sandbox effect. The Sandbox acts as a deterrent for sites, possibly to discourage spam sites from rising quickly, getting banned, and reappearing.

    The Google Sandbox may perhaps be deemed as a new website that is put on probation for proper behavior prior to being given full value for its incoming links and content.

    Many believe that Google created the Sandbox new site filter, to arrest spam-related sites adding numerous purchased links, and getting ranked high for their keywords, right from the day they are launched. Google understandably considers a high number of links pointing to a site right from the start as suspicious. There is the distinct possibility that spam sites would use various undesirable tactics to get to the top of the search results and profit from heavy sales even prior to being banned. The danger also lurks of spam sites then repeating the process continually. Therefore, new sites are now subject to a form of probation by the Google Sandbox.

    The controversy arises from the fact that not all agree that the Google Sandbox exists as a separate filter from other alleged Google filters. There are analysts who believe that the phenomenon merely results from the already existing Google algorithm calculations, and the Sandbox effect is nothing more than an illusion. But the one redeeming news is that Google has nearly admitted that the Sandbox filter is real.

    Whereas all types of sites can be placed for scrutiny in the Sandbox, it is more of a threat to the new websites seeking rankings for highly competitive keyword phrases. For those who are anxious to know how long does the site stay in Sandbox, the answer is it varies from one to six months, with three to four months being the normal duration. The simple rule is the more competitive the usage of keyword, the longer the site spends in the Sandbox.

    Some people are under the erroneous impression that by joining programs like Google Adwords and Google Adsense they can influence the duration of their website stay in the Sandbox. Please understand that participation in the various Google advertising programs will not keep your site out of Sandbox, or shorten your stay.

    Many people wonder what to do when their sites are caught in the sandbox. They should know that it is the ideal time to continue to add fresh keyword rich content and new incoming links to their sites. It is also the right time to add more theme relevant content to the website. Concentrate on adding more keyword rich pages to both on page and off page factors. It is preferable to add a site map and make sure that all pages link properly to one another with appropriate link anchor text. Thus, when the sandbox filter is lifted, your improved site will rise rapidly to its proper place at the top of the search rankings.

    Content, content, content....
    And don't go berserk with backlinks, especially not if you don't have any content on your website.
    I said this many times before I'm feeling like parrot when building links you need to be smart and make them appear natural and according to your site overall IM presence (like, age, quality and quantity of content, backlinks you have, trust, authority, etc.....)
    If you are not doing things the right way, you will raise some flags at Google and they can filter your site down, you want pass their "filters" until you meet some of their SEO quality guidelines....
