    Recently I saw one of my websites dropped for all keywords (actually this website is pretty new. I added the content about 3 weeks ago. The domain is a expired one (about 8 years old)).

    The website and it's content is still indexed (tested it by site:myurl). Not really sure if I am sandboxed or not.

    If I add it to Google Webmaster Tools will I get any notification?

    Websites rank higher when they are new then drop off, nothing new here. I would just continue work on it.

    Grab a paragraph from the page you think is sandboxed and enter it in G

    If your site shows up your set

    what do you mean by "your set" ?
    My websites shows up, since all my pages are indexed.

    If your website is ranking #1 when you search on G with a random sentence that you took from your site

    Your not sandboxed

    What the guys say above is correct. What makes you think you may be sandboxed?

    Hey nakamura,

    Just give it some time and keep doing what your doing. Don't change your link building or social tactics, over time you will be fine.

    Thanks
