Hey there, Just here to say that sandbox does exist, I helped do some basic off-page seo for my friend. I'm talking bottom-end newbie style SEO and even that caused a sandbox / deindex if you do not believe me then explain this : Website is a Starcraft 2 coaching website. I admit the on-page SEO is terrible as they are currently working on a new website (same domain though). It was rising positions in Google as I was creating backlinks, keyword I am targeting is "Starcraft 2 coaching" <- it has like no competition. It was position 49 in google then suddenly it was not even in top 1000 search results, how is this possible if sandbox doesn't exist? Unless you can explain how for a non-competitive keyword it can drop from position 49 to below 1000. Find screenshot in attached images.
