    How can you tell? I did the jumptags method. I did the mister-wong method. I did this site a few days ago, but a different wordpress site I did a month ago got indexed in less than a day. What is the maximum time to wait in order to find out if you are sandboxed?

    He appears to be asking about getting indexed, not about losing rankings..:D:D
    The term..sandbox is...bullshit...it doesnt exist.
    You are either indexed...
    Or you are not indexed...
    Sometimes indexing a new site can happen within a few hours..sometimes a few days...
    And..if you move around in the listings..and are indexed...you are not "sandboxed".
    And..if you were indexed...and are now not indexed(because of poor black hat/spamming tricks etc)...then you are not "sandboxed"..you are deindexed..

    Mr Wong is a ******** social bookmarking site.

    As for the Google indexing, everyone appears to be suffering at the moment and my latest site took 6 days. I keep saying this but you have got to give it time as not every site indexes at the same speed.

    The term exists...so what, the guy was initially talking about getting indexed...
    End of story..
    The two concepts have nothing to do with each other.

    and it's used in general by webmaster community to define the way how google threat new sites witch are trying to jump high on the serps just because most of the time peoples trying to over optimize those new sites for faster profit


    And you work for google so you know this...?:)
    How do you over optimise a site anyway...??
    You must mean a linking structure of some sort..
    Sites move around, due to some form of algo that unless you work for google you can just guess at.
    There would, by implication(GUESS WORK) be some form of levelling out of sites which possibly , when new, get too many backlinks, too quickly,and end up with more, in some niches, than a ranked/aged domain.
    This would be a guess based on logic/observation.;)
    The discussion started out about indexing..
    Normally I dont bother stepping into "sandbox" bullshit posts...
    I learnt my lesson again..

    I've been using that URL for a long time now. It has got nothing to do with Google sandbox. Its just a temporary URL that Google has put up to test its Google Caffeine (a whole new change to the way Google assigns authority to websites and their rankings). Using the above URL, you can preview your change in SERP when Google officially launches its new algorithm.
