Is my site sandboxed?

    Dear users,

    Normally when I make a site, it ranks fine or at least acceptable and are being indexed totally within a couple of days.
    My latest creation is now 1½ week old, and still has trouble getting indexed. For several days the Google indexing mechanism has been stuck on page 9 out of 30 (according to Google Webmaster tools).

    And by looking at the site’s position it’s ranked at position 351 in a niche where there’s only about 500 results. The first page doesn’t have any competition at all.

    Have my site been sandboxed? And how can I speed up the process of indexing and the position of my site?

    Thanks in advance

    Definition of the sandbox effect:

    When a website ranks well for its target keywords in Yahoo and MSN, but is nowhere to be found in Google.

    No, you have not been sandboxed. Give it some time, what you have doesn't sound like much of a problem.

    And pray that in a few months time, you don't get sandboxed for real!

    what i always wanted to ask (yes i`m seo noob): the only way to see if you are sanboxed is checking msn and yahoo and then compare it with the (non-existant) listing in google?

    is there no "online-sandbox-checker"?
