Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
The *optimized* newly uploaded pages surprisingly got a Google Rank # 7 during its first few weeks online and surprisingly had been no where to be found at all already after a few more weeks up to now. My question is: Is my website Sandboxed? How can I get out if my website is actually sandboxed?
I understand that you will know if a website is banned from Google if it actually has a grey-barred status using the Google Tool Bar. Sad to say, the website actually has a grey-barred status even though I followed a Good SEO practice. Is it actually banned by Google? Again, how can I get out?
Thanks for your help and have wonderful New Year to all.
I have no idea how one gets out of having been banned.
Does it mean that I'm not banned because "no results found" was not the result page.
Thanks and Cheers!
A few things you need to realize.
1. You may have bought a banned domain and are suffering carryover penalty.
2. There is no Google sandbox, there is a sites waiting period which can be shortened through proving the site is so popular it does not warrant the waiting period.
<snip> was listed in search engines and assigned Google PageRank 19 days after going live due our tremendous PR push once we went live.
3. If you are banned, which it seems still too early to tell, you will need to follow Google webmaster guidelines and write a reinclusion request.
4. It seems you do not read your website server stats to tell you what googlebot is doing when it visits your site. If not you should learn how to.
Hope this helps

"i do have a relatively new site my site got disappeared from index but googlebot still visits my site please someone advice me is my site banned or sandboxed i have few backlinks from pr7 and pr6 pages please help me "
Dont know the site but if it is this <snip> site that is part of your email address then there is no doubt you are banned.
What is that?
This has got to be the worst spam site ever

[edit reason] No specific sites, please [/edit]
Yes yo u are quite right Jan there is no Google Sandbox on the organix SEO side of the business.
There is a slight lag but depending on popularity sites can jump up high.
PR for a new site can be seen in less than 45 days.
Dr Garcia has an in depth explanation as well <snip>

That really is a terrible site, and epitomises spam better than anything I have ever seen.
