    its not sandboxed, you just need to market your site. It seems all the rage now to say "oh no...my site dropped in rankings! I must be sandboxed!" But in reality, you just need help in marketing your site.

    There is two types of sandbox at google.

    total sandbox = your site is out of index
    idiot sandbox = your site is sandboxed but still in index. no matter how much promotion and maketing you do your domain and or IP will NEVER get on top of google, sooner a tsunami totally would destroy the USA

    You´ve been idiot sandboxed. Welcome in the club.

    Yeah everyone should believe someone with a rep count of 2, when you get 10 without doing anything.

    Sandboxed = NOT deindexed. Simply pushed off the rankings.

    Deindexed = deindexed. It's simple, no need for a synonym.

    well then I've been idiot sandboxes.

    Some of these pages are PR2, 7+ months old, etc.

    I tried to 301 redirect them to my new site. That killed rankings.

    So I cancelled the 301 redirect.

    Now I'm idiot sandboxed apparently.

    As stated there is a subtle difference between the "sandbox" or more accurately a google penalty for one reason or another and deindexing.

    It sounds like you have had a penalty.

    In the eyes of Google, new sites shouldn't have lots of backlinks. Let the dust settles and gradually build links.
