      There is no such thing as a sandbox checker.


      To the OP, you can never be 100% certain. I would check the backlink profile, check if their are records of the site in the WayBack Archive, and see if it is indexed.

      Google has been faster in removing expired domains from the index then they used to be, so just because it is not indexed doesn't mean it is penalized.

      If the link profile looks really spammy, that's not good. If the old site content looks spammy, same thing.

      The other thing you can do is setup a simple site on it and put a link to an internal page using some really long crazy anchor that nobody would ever search for. Put that in the title and content of the internal page.

      Use something like "this page of nothingness is about nothing, nothing at all said the man with the purple elephant".

      If the page doesn't rank for something crazy like that, it might be penalized.

        Like I said, that is not real. There is no such thing as a sandbox checker. .

        That is a lead generation tool. Put in any keyword in there that your site is not ranking for and it says your site is in the sandbox along with a message to get in touch with them to discuss it.

        I just put this site in. It says Warrior Forum is in the sandbox.

          I use this tool to check sandbox, but the results in each check are differences. Why it shows the difference result in each checking

            Because it is not a real tool. It is just a bogus tool to get people to think they are in the sandbox and that they need the help of the company behind that tool.

            It's a lead generation device. Nothing more.
