    Whenever I create a new website with fresh content along with proper On page SEO, i got impact quickly. People are always talking about the sandbox, and I thought it might not work for me. How lucky I am. So for those who still believe in Google Sandbox -

    Sandbox is just another terms to being penalized, which definitely exists. If you aren't doing anything wrong you wont get penalized, simple. Just like you said you just made a new website, added fresh content and had nice onpage seo, nothing special, why would you be penalized =)

    Seems legit.

    That's not it, people believed new sites were "sandboxed" from ranking well until they reached a certain age.

    Agreed but still i am seeing some people are saying my new site is not showing on SERP. How much time it will take getting out from Sandbox? But the fact is they never checked if their content is duplicate or not. Site is optimized perfectly or not. They just kept waiting to jump out from sandbox :D

    No Sandbox is a mythical waiting period that only exists in the minds of people who can't rank websites. Not a penalty, something that is applied to all new websites.

    The sandbox is for people who don't know how to do 2 things:

    1. Keyword research to find low competition keywords
    2. On-site SEO to give them a good head start on 80% of the competition

    I have never had an article indexed that didn't instantly shoot up into the top 30 positions. Never dropped into oblivion for 3 months before reappearing. It's all bollocks in my opinion

    I thought the sandbox was the place the retarded webmasters play with each other. I was told they have to wear goggles and headgear bc they're special.

    If you never been over position 30 for a indexed article you are target niches not worth targeting. Competition is a good thing.

    I have targeted and ranked for keywords with high competition, 20 - 30 thousand searches per month, buyer intent. I am referring to affiliate marketing sites that are targeting the 'lower hanging fruit' of a niche, with lower competition.

    Lower competition? Yea .. Not worth targeting? Definitely worth targeting

    I have never jumped straight into the top 30 for insanely difficult keywords, no, but most beginners on here won't be targeting high competition keywords
