Google Sandbox

How do you tell if you are in it?

I know that most new sites automatically go into the sandbox, but is there any way to accurately tell if/when you are out of the sandbox.

With one of my sites, it's hard for me to tell if I'm still in the sandbox. The site is new so there is few IBL, little content, but the site is growing in both areas.

My concern is how do I tell if it is in the sandbox or if it is the other factors that is affecting full spidering.

Thank you

Go to any SE and search for google sandbox detection tool and google sandbox tool and you'll find a lot of info on how to avoid it, how to possibly get out of it, and tools to check if you're in it. I had a link for the tool, but of course as the page recently gained popularity the site now requires that you register!
