Perhaps I am missing something, but I think this thread is asking how long does a site wait in the "sandbox" before anyone can find it. Our experience is that the pages get crawled and will even show up in a site: query after a few days. But getting anywhere in the SERPs usually takes from 80 to 110 days. We have observed this pattern three times over the course of the last year.
