Avoiding the Sandbox by Combining Sites?

Put new 'sites' on an existing domain?

Since I have been producing more sites of late, I have realize I need to change somethings up in order to get around the box.

Since all my sites are in the same general category, I was thinking instead of launching a new site, from now on would I start to combine my new sites into one. I would optimize each directory for its respective keywords.

If my domain was out of the box, then presumably example.com/topic1 would not be sandboxed when it launches? Or would G simply say that this page is brand new and goes after new keywords so its sandbox time?

alpha,

Although what you outlined couldn't really be described as avoiding the sandbox per say, it would have the effect you are looking for. Google sandboxes entire domains not pages, groups of pages or sub domains.

Cheers,

New areas added to any existing website get picked up pretty fast and indexed. I have seen only a few situations where it has impacted the entire website for a few weeks - resulting in low traffic.

Since all my sites are in the same general category, I was thinking instead of launching a new site, from now on would I start to combine my new sites into one. I would optimize each directory for its respective keywords.

Not a bad idea anyway if it is related. I have noticed sites in the same general category get picked up much faster with different whois data. The same company name tends to trigger a filter in my experience anyway. Could be different for other niches.

And what would you do if that ONE site got a hit by a savage update like Allegra or Bourbon?

IMHO, one of the hard lessons that one should learn from Bourbon and Allegra is:

Donít put all your eggs in one basket
