    If you even think you are in the sandbox, I would just ditch the site and start again. imho

    First of all check your Google Webmaster Tools account to see if your site has received any penalties. If there are no notifications, take a long look at the Google terms of service and see if you are in breach of them and if so edit your site and send a reconsideration request.

    Please note that if this is a relatively new site that has not been indexed before, you may just need to wait until Google finds and indexes you, to make this happen sooner, try building some quality links to your site/articles and you should see the crawler come a crawling.

      When I first started my site stayed in the sandbox. I just always just kept building good links and it would always come back.

    There is no tool to tell if you are in the sanbox. If you don't appear any where in Google for your main keyword(s) then you have been sanboxed baby!!!

    if your site is, then do a google search for "bluewidgets" without the quotation marks. If your site does not show up within the first 5 pages of the SERPs, then you are probably sandboxed. But this applies if your domain has been indexed for less than a few months and suddenly drops in traffic.

    I know many say that Google gives a rankings boost and hence traffic to new domains to see if they are worthy or not (QDF / Query That Deserves Freshness), but my experiences tell me that that is true to a degree and also that there is a some form of sandbox for new domains that is apart from the QDF thingy..

    The consensus among SEO experts is that there is no longer a sandbox, sometimes called the alternate directory, site can be entirely de-indexed for major offenses, or lowered in ranking after a ranking algorithm revision. The Panda filter had damaged the ranking of a number of sites with 'thin' unoriginal content over the last year. There are new casual every few months when a new revision of the Filter is unleashed.
