    I thought google sandbox is a myth, If it is really exist it will be the end of Internet marketing. according to wikipedia it so restrictive it can sandbox and deindex a new site for being competent.

    You'll find the keyword of your website jump from # to # and # to # tomorrow...

    Google is trying to determine the best position for the keyword of your website.

    It mainly judged from the content of your website.

    I read this on an e-book.

      This is unfounded and I have to disagree with you...

      I have had plenty of sites rank in top 5 and drop below page 100 after a month or so and it had nothing to do with me stopping linking to my sites or anything like that, the sites were not dupe content and the content was not by any means shallow content.

      Until you have built well over 100 sites and ranked most of them to page 1 and watch some of them disappear without any good explanation or reason, then you come back and tell me there is no such thing as Google sandbox...

      No, you've been deindexed.

        Correct!

        And if you are deindexed, you are screwed! lol

        There are so many people that confuse denidexed and sandboxed/penalized.

        You will know if you are sandboxed if your ranks returned in tools like Market Samurai and others show that you are ranking something like 509 for your main keyword, when a week ago u ranked #1.

        This will happen to ALL your target keywords typically, not just one, and thats when you know you are most likely sandboxed.
