    Hi guys, can you please tell me...
    if a site is sandboxed does it mean that all pages penalized or only main domain's page.

    I thought all above, but i see one site of mine has interesting behavior. Main page was on 1st page,, now i don't see it anywhere, but it shows as indexed. Yet traffic is coming from long tail keywords and other pages.

    Is it sandboxing or dance? If dance how long does it last, in average?

    dance is what it is, if it was sandboxed you more than likely wouldn't get any rankings anywhere. It could be a couple of days before it comes back, sometimes sooner sometimes later.

    I'm noticing the same thing recently. I lost all my mainpage rankings, but my subpages have stayed put. It sucks cause my money keywords all pointed to my mainpage.

    Any suggestions for this?

    This is weird, if your site is 1 year old it shouldn't be sandboxed. I don't understand how mine could be sandboxed either, I've been slowly building quality high PR links. How have you been building links, if at all?

    This problem is becoming more common and I have no idea what's causing it. Maybe submit the question to Google webmaster forum?

    Well, if some of the pages are still ranking, it's not sandbox, but... (dance?). Yet, not clear what to do about it.

    Yes, it's bizarre. It's not like 'normal' sandbox to me since my site has already gone through that period of dancing like crazy. It was on the first page stable then after the algorithm page dropped to page 3, then went to page 2, then the homepage went off the map.

    People are talking all kinds of shit like Blackhat linkbuilding tactics will get your homepage removed like this, well if that's the case then I can just go and spam competitors with scrapebox. It's frustrating as I've only been doing quality linkbuilding.
