It’s a time phase that keywords that are competitive must wait in order to achieve results on Google.
What can be done to avoid the sandbox?
This is really not possible. To avoid the sandbox though you can target non competitive keywords. By doing this you are able to jump up in the ranks very quickly but chances are those terms have a crappy search per day so it wont be bringing in much traffic.
What can I do while I am in the sandbox?
Just wait to ome out of it . You can work on your content and most important backlinks.
How long will I be in the sandbox?
Its 6 to 12 months according to big SEO’s I know. But this is dependant on how competitive your keyword is. The more competitive the longer you wait.
How can I tell if I am in the sandbox?
Doing a search for allinanchor:”keyword” is the best way to tell. General rule is if you have go through and search page by page looking for your URL and find it then you are not in the sandbox. But if you get tired of looking and your fingers start to hurt and you quit before you find it then you are in the sandbox.

The sandbox, which has to do with rankings is different from being indexed, which has to do with Google knowing about your site. Submit your information to Google sitemaps and they will pick up the rest of your pages. If you have a penalty or something like that, they will let you know. The sandbox is not a penalty BTW, it is a side effect of their ranking algorithm.
My sense is that Google themselves don’t really know themselves exactly how to get out of the sandbox. Having met with some Googlers over the past few days, it’s a bit more clear that the algorithm they have has hundreds of aspects to the formula, many of which PhDs have come up with. So you can imagine just how complex the thing is. This sandbox effect has come out of the updated algorithm, and really the SEOs are probably the better one’s to ask as to how to get out.
As SEOmaster says, you can’t on a “new” domain. But you could launch a subdomain or buy a domain that has previously had gambling (or relevant) content and has been indexed in Google in a past life is one way.
as said before, you can buy old domains which has had gambling content on it before.
Just, time, quality links, quality content and keep adding content……. this is all you need to do – which is what you should be doing anyways – so basically you do nothing to try and escape the sandbox.
my 2 main sites just came out (both same day to – 24th Nov). 1 was only 4 months old and the other 7 months (site targeting poker and casino) so im thankfull for that as some site can take at least 1 year.
