    Newer site, starts ranking.. and then disappears from search for a day, a week, a month. It's one of Google's anti-spam mechanisms.

    Solid post on Ahrefs from last year: https://blog.ahrefs.com/google-sandbox-2-0-know/

    Things have changed from the Google sandbox most of us are used to/think of first, circa 200X.

    The Google sandbox is one of the way Google ranks the web pages in its index. It is a kind of mechanism through which Google found the spam domains/web pages and dramatically reduce the traffic from the Google

    Basically, in Google Sandbox effect, your domain or webpage will not be banned or penalized. However, there will be a sudden drop in the traffic, which you were getting from Google.
