Is SEO the same out of the sandbox as it was pre sandbox?
do links count the same or do you have to wait

For those of you with sites not in the sandbox (please no discussion on if the sandbox is real or not)
Do you find new inbound links boost your rankings as quickly as the pre-sandbox days, or are they taking much longer to have an effect?

Iíll start then,
From my perspective (one site out of the sand)

New links are not boosting my rankings as quickly as they did in the pre-sandbox days.

1)Quality of the link, from an expert/authority site count faster.
2)One ways are worth more.
3)Links seem to have to age more now to be worth something.

For post sandbox sites, they usually rank faster on Yahoo and MSN, so I am always telling my customers about these engines, and giving examples of sites that are post sandbox and doing great. I actually point my customers to threads here at WebmasterWorld so they can see that Google is not indexing new sites. After they see that other experts are having the same problem, they realize:
1) It is understandable why they are not ranking in Google.
2) They can still make money with Yahoo and MSN

I heard from a reputable source that MSN is going live by mid January (if not early January). It's going to get interesting. :)

I also believe this is the case but I'm curious to find out if links gained after a site is out of the sandbox need to age also.

e.g. If I'm ranking #5 on Google for "widgets" out of 8,000,000 results and then I get a link on the front page of Yahoo, dmoz and google would I hit #1 in the next week - or would I have to let these links age?

Gerbot, in my experience you have to wait longer.

Sounds like a great ad for a site that specializes in selling links. :)

unless you look at the third point which suggests you need to buy the links over a long period of time

Keep the links out of the same C class

Manage the anchor text of your links - be natural.
