    The Sanbox!!


    I was wondering does anybody know the average time for a sanbox and whether it really exists?

    I nwould just like to say that Google has caused many a grey hair over this subject!!

    Hi bexinateur

    In general, brand-new web sites with new domain names need about 6 - 8 months to get top rankings on Google.
    This is just on average nobody really knows except Google.

    The usual process is that Google indexes the new web site, lists it for some less important queries and then the web pages drop from the search engine result pages for several months. Although other search engines work fine, Google doesn't list the web site, sometimes not even for the company name.

    If you have a brand-new web site, don't worry about this behavior. You are not doing anything wrong. Google seems to delay the inclusion of new web sites. This phenomenon is called the Google sandbox.

    I have a few sites stuck in the sandbox at the moment waiting for them to be released into the SERP's

    I have a few links you might want to check out about the sanbox:
