You have to let search engines know that you exist as a first step. This is done by either going to them and submitting your domain to be spidered, or by linking with other websites so that the search engines can follow the link and find you. In either case, once Google (the people who created the sandbox) find your site, you will then be placed into the sandbox. This means you won’t be able to achieve rankings for your site for competitive terms. The sandbox period typically lasts for 6-8 months, though many people claim it can be longer, as much as 18 months.

is there any way i could avoid being sandboxed?

If you know a Google engineer then you might be able to avoid it, or if you have a .edu, .gov or .mil domain that you can use. Otherwise, no, every new site that is launched is subjected to the sandbox. Maybe they have exceptions for something like a Red Cross Katrina Fund site, but not for online gambling.

hey webber, my friend says that i could use his website. I dont think his website is sandboxed because I was able to look up his website on whois.sc and his rank was like 3,000,000 something. THe only problem is that his domain name has no relationship whatsoever to poker, casinos, or even gambling in general. Would google penalize for this?

If you can pick up an active domain that has been in existence prior to Julyish 2004, you should be able to avoid the sandbox. That’s approximately the timeframe that Google instituted the sandbox for all new domains. Older domains haven’t experience the same issue. But, this is all theory, you will only know for sure by trying it out.

I agree with Webber. You can buy an older domain that is casino related, although you can use a non related one with subdomains too.

Forget about the Google sandbox altogether and concentrate on getting rankings in Yahoo and MSN. Google will do what Google does. It really doesn’t matter where the traffic comes from providing it’s good quality and ends up with players playing poker or whatever you’re marketing.
