SandBox question???

rtb1980 asked 1 year ago
I have a few casino domain names bu am only developing one.

I thought maybe I could park them for a year or so untill they are out of the sandbox then develop..

Will my URLs, being parked, be let out of the sandbox eventually??
Or do I have to actually have a site there.

And one year might not be enough to get out of the sandbox anymore, the way Google is going…

As I pointed out in my earlier post, I’ve personally experienced the sandbox effect on my own sites, and I know other webmasters who have also experienced and observed the sandbox effect on their sites.

You can call gravity hearsay and gossip too if you like, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s an observable phenomenon that many people have experienced.

This is the smoking gun all seo forums refer to.

(this is a near word-for-word quote)
They’ve been amused by the term
I asked him if they would continue using it and he said “definitely” or possibly “almost certainly”… He noted in words I cannot remember exactly that they felt it was having a remarkable effect on the quality of the index.

Wayne-

Here’s a thread at Threadwatch quoting Matt Cutts regarding the probationary period:

I read Matt’s blog. I didn’t get that.

The sandbox is a probationary period for new sites that affects their ranking in Google. Newer sites tend to rank poorly compared to where you would expect them to rank based on link popularity and other factors. The consensus is that the sandbox lasts from 9 to 12 months.

Matt Cutts is on record as confirming that there is a probationary period before new sites rank well in Google.

This is what is commonly called the “Google sandbox effect”.

The Google sandbox effect is clearly defined in a number of reputable SEO forums and blogs.

Clearly define the sandbox for me then.

It’s not gossip and hearsay; it’s an observable phenomenon that webmasters have seen that relates to how their sites rank in Google.

I’ve observed the sandbox effect on some of my sites, and I know other webmasters who have observed the effect also.
