---- Does the "sandbox" Only Affect Phrases Containing Popular Words?

Your view of the sandbox is too limited.
I've been involved with the creation of some very large Oracle databases and about four months ago described why I thought the sandbox existed ... there may be rules or filters that Google applies to specifically exclude certain sites from the primary index. This would make the results on common phrases more stable and make the database easier to maintain ...
You think the (so-called) sandbox is mainly a db maintainence issue? And my view is too limited? Hehe.
BillyS most of what you state is obvious; of course G is concerned about computational efficiency. But do you really believe that G is incapable of handling all those queries to the point that they are not showing thousands of newer sites? To make their db easier to maintain? Wall St. would love that. ;-) This has nothing to do with the (so-called) sandbox, or the topic of this thread.
But I'm with Liane (again)...I'm confused. When ciml (and Jake) make posts along the same lines you gotta pay attention. I just don't see how the so called sandbox relates to high volume kw occurance only. Seems like too much evidence to the contrary.
