    How do I know if one of my sites is sandboxed? Is there a tool that checks this?

    There isn't a tool that I know of. But type this into Google: site:yoururlhere and if no pages show up, then you have been deindexed and have thus been sandboxed.

    new Google panda was just released. If you had a drop in last few days, that's Panda.

    ah ok, my sites are very new but I have done a few backlink and bookmark blasts, so I was not sure if that was a bad idea or not... I checked all domains and they are still there. :D

    Thanks for the quick reply

    No problem :) sandbox is different from low rankings. Your site is sandboxed when Google deindexes your website.

    i dont think so. sandbox means you are on page 16. not deindexed.

    Windmill is incorrect.

    Google dance = Site dancing for a few days or couple of weeks or so. Your site will still be indexed if you type in site:yoursite.org

    Sandbox = Site dancing for several weeks...ie, out of top 100 for a few weeks or months. Your site will still be indexed if you type in site:yoursite.org

    Deindexed = Completely different and your site will not show up if you search for it using above method and may be gone forever.

    Take a guess
    That's completely and utterly incorrect and should be removed.
