    If your web domain is new, chances are that you will not be featured at the top of SERPs. Not ranking high despite using every SEO strategy available is not due to a flaw in your webpage or SEO campaign. It’s because of Google Sandbox.

    What exactly is Google sandbox in SEO? In simple terms, this is sort of a probation period for new websites where certain restrictions are put on young web pages. The main reason behind this is what Google considers relevant. The search engine considers older pages to be more authentic based on rankings. While Google Sandbox isn’t officially acknowledged by the search engine, this phenomenon does exist on the web. First, Google filters new websites and the algorithm, then, ranks the old pages on top and the new ones get pushed below.

    Identifying if your webpage has been sandboxed by Google is a beneficial exercise. If sandboxed, your website will only appear on the search page when you enter the actual domain name. When you search for keywords you’re targeting, Google will not display your site among the top results. If you have used backlinks, they, too, will not be shown.

    While it might seem concerning to new webpage owners, the effects of Google Sandbox don’t last long. It all depends on the keywords and the search data. The Google Sandbox period is estimated to last for 6 to 8 months. Once this period passes, your website will be able to rank for keywords you’re targeting.

    The Google Sandbox is a metaphorical term to explain why most new websites have very poor rankings in Google Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS). Very few people know for sure if the ‘sandbox’ actually exists, but it seems to be a filter added to the Google algorithms sometime around March 2004.

    What is the function of the Google Sandbox? The generally accepted principle behind the Google Sandbox is that it enables Google to filter out ‘Flash-in-the-Pan’ websites from those that offer good quality, up-to-date content. It is within Googles interest to ensure that the results it displays to its users within the SERPS lead to highly relevant, up-to-date, useful websites Relevancy is key to the search engines success so it will take all steps it can to ensure the relevancy of its search results. Filtering out new websites and monitoring them may allow them to provide more accurate results within the real SERPS.

    Indentifying the Sandbox? How do you know if your website in in the sandbox? Most new websites under newly registered domains will get relegated to the sandbox once Google knows about the site. Google will find the site by following an Inbound Link (IBL) from another site that the Googlebot crawls. You will then see the website in the normal Google SERPS if you search for the actual domain name, but the website is unlikely to be listed for any of its keywords. Google also won’t show signs of any other websites linking to your website, nor will it display pages related to yours. In addition Google won’t list any pages other than your Home (index) page.

    If you track your websites visitor stats whilst it is in the Google Sandbox, you will see that the Googlebot comes crawling fairly regularly and that it does crawl, and therefore catalogue, all of your pages. Google does know that your pages exist and knows what they contain, but doesn’t list them in the main SERPS. In other words, because your website is new, it is under probation in the ‘sandbox’.

    How Long Will My website Stay in the Google Sandbox? It is difficult to say how long a website will stay in the Google sandbox as this seems to depend on the types of keywords it will be completing for in the real SERPS It can be up to 6-8 months and the only way to get out of the sandbox is to wait.

The Privacy Sandbox is an initiative led by Google to create web standards for websites to access user information without compromising privacy. Its core purpose is to facilitate online advertising without the use of third-party cookies."

Sandbox is Google's precautionary measure to prevent recently created websites from showing up high in search results. Even though the search engine representatives deny its existence, new websites fail to rank high in SERP. And the probable cause of this is Google Sandbox."

    The Google Sandbox Effect is a theory used to explain why newly-registered domains or domains with frequent ownership changes rank poorly in Google Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS). In other words new websites are put into a “sandbox” or a holding area and have their search ratings on hold until they can prove worthy of ranking. Sand box is defined as a time period which a new website needs to wait, in order to get ranking for key words. In order words, it can be defined as a filter system that Google places on every new webpages. Google crawl each and every webpage of new website, this time required in this crawling process is termed as Sand box.

    The Google sandbox refers to a commonly held belief that Google has a filter that places all new websites under restrictions for a certain amount of time to prevent them from ranking in searches.

    The idea behind the Google sandbox is that newer websites are not as relevant as older sites, and they are also more likely to be spam. For this reason, they are restricted and allowed to mature before being allowed to rank well, much as a young child is placed to play in a sandbox by his or her caregiver.

    Although Google will neither confirm nor deny the existence of the sandbox, it is widely accepted as fact.

    The Google Sandbox has never been officially confirmed by Google. But many SEOs are confident in its existence, as they see sandbox-like effects when trying to rank new websites.

    So what’s the truth? Does the Google Sandbox exist in 2018? If so, how do you prevent Google from “sandboxing” your site?

    To answer these questions, I reached out to a few SEO practitioners to learn what they think about Google sandbox in 2018, based on their experience with new websites.

    Google Sandbox is the period that a new site has to go over before it can rank in the top position on the SERPs. This waiting time is not a penalty. Thus, even if you have perfected your web design and SEO you will be unable to rank higher than a certain limit. Even though Google has never confirmed the idea of Sandbox, many users believe it does exist.

    The Google Sandbox is an allegorical term to clarify why most new sites have extremely helpless rankings in Google Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS). Not many individuals know without a doubt if the 'sandbox' really exists, yet it is by all accounts a channel added to the Google calculations at some point around March 2004.

    What is the capacity of the Google Sandbox? The by and large acknowledged guideline behind the Google Sandbox is that it empowers Google to sift through 'Fleeting sensation' sites from those that offer great quality, state-of-the-art content. It is inside Google's interest to guarantee that the outcomes it presentations to its clients inside the SERPS lead to exceptionally important, modern, valuable sites Relevancy is vital to the web search tools achievement so it will make everything strides it can to guarantee the pertinence of its indexed lists. Sifting through new sites and observing them might permit them to give more exact outcomes inside the genuine SERPS.
