Although this is my first time posting I have read a fairly good amount of posts here, so I hope this doesn't qualify as a stupid newbie question. Here goes... I see people talking about the Sandbox, and their site not indexing. Does this mean that in google when you do a site:mydomain.com it only turns up with 1 listing for your site but you turn up nowhere in the serps? Or that when you do the site:mydomain.com it returns a "your search site:mydomain.com did not match any documents". I ask this because my site is 2 months old and I don't expect it to be indexed on google, but I am confused as to whether it should be showing up on the site:mydomain.com search on google. I purchased a recently expired domain name and afraid it has been doomed from the beginning to never be indexed by google and I need to no if I should abandon the efforts on this domain and switch domains to an original one that I have thought up. Thanks for your help.
