    I know there are many people here that debate whether it exists, but all that aside I was ranking well for many keywords in my niche (1st and 2nd pages), and then I've gone to not even in the top 50 pages.

    Website still shows up in Google, just not ranking for any of my keywords any more (there were about 25 keywords).

    So whether this is a "Google Dance" or "Sandbox", is the strategy pretty much the same and I just continue building links as usual?

    Site is about 5 months old, about 15 pages, content is original (no scraped content or autoblog), and I been blasting it with a lot of SB, AMR, and SEnuke.

    Thanks for the help.

    Sandbox is just a myth. Continue to update your site and build backlinks. Just surf the wave.

    well its not a myth, its just misunderstood most of the time, its google's way of protecting itself from quick scams, but like Abstroose said, just keep promoting it and build quality links and you will see it ranking again.

    Keep adding fresh content and just after you have added a new article(post) start a new linkbuilding campaign. Google "reads" the new content and thinks that the new links that you are getting are due to the fresh article. Also link your posts to a twitter account and have it post to twitter whenever you update your website. Also, try to keep your number of links constant, if you blast 1000 today and nothing for a week it's going to be suspicious. You could blast 1000 and then continue with as low as 10, the main ideea is: NEVER STOP BUILDING LINKS :) (except when you're no.1, then you can turn it down a notch).

    PS: Google loves to dance, A LOT!

    Adding fresh content is a big lie invented by google.

    Google's algo specifically calls out the existence of the "sandbox". The only way to get out of it is time. Because the modifier for the sandbox is the amount of links gained divided by the age of the website.

    I wouldn't stop building backlinks, but definitely slow it down.

    Hey guys thanks for the response.

    So I'm just gonna go about business as usual and hope it comes out.

    I intend to add some fresh articles and backlink those pages as well and see how it goes.

    I see so many "Sandbox" stories here for months, but do you think its because these people get smacked by Big G and then just "Give Up"?

    I feel like if you keep adding content and links, that your site shouldn't sit at the bottom for months. Is that a naive way to think?

    Curious to your guys' thoughts, cuz I feel those that have been sandboxed for months pretty much just play the waiting game and don't do anything.

    You'll be fine man. But it would be a good idea to pick up another project, so you can work on that one while you wait to get out of the sandbox.
