    Is there a way to know if the site has been sandboxed and if it has how can I get it reindexed.

    Sandbox should go from your site in a few days.

    This is what i thought but one of my sites, no adult, no black hat etc, has dissappeared a couple weeks ago and has remained gone.

    Anyone know how to check this?

    I think you are talking about deindexed. This is when you site is taken out of the index completely and no pages show up at all when you search for you domain name in ""

    The sandbox (if it exists) is like Google purgatory. The send your site there for your sins (too many links too quick) but it is not deindexed.

    I personally blasted a brand new site with 8k links. It dropped for like a week and then came back on the first page for about 10 keywords I was targeting. Some would say I was sandboxed for a week. I would say I was dancing with Google.

    Few weeks out of google ( noone of your url are in the serp) that means you been a bit deindexed or banned.... try to see if you have some pagerank , if the bar is grey that means you have been banned...
