    I was surprised to find 3 of my sites - which were penalized by Google for time periods ranging 6 months to 2 years - on the first page of Google for the keywords they were ranking before they got penalized. I had not requested any reconsideration to Google, so I guess Google has become very generous all of a sudden !

    You've probably just crawled your way out of the sandbox.

    Its always a nice surprise isn't it? I had one of mine jump out of the sandbox to page one. Granted there wasn't a lot of competing sites.

    i think you could have got out of the sandbox pretty quickly if you had implemented some other techniques.
