    A friend of mine says that all sites get sandboxed if they send spam emails to get link exchange and if they have too many links in the beginning. Is that true? What other mistakes do you have to avoid not to get sandboxed?

    Welcome to BHW! There are hundred of threads on the topic on the avoidance of the sandbox and how to get out of the box as well. The search button is your best friend but that said a combination of authority, continuous build of quality links and the addition of good content is key to your SERPs.

    Google is not big on acknowledging the "sandbox" even exists leaving us to read between the lines. In general, Google likes to see all sites show steady growth in backlinks. If a site appears to add too many links too quickly, it attracts attention and could earn you a sandbox visit.

    Exactly! I have brought several sites out of the sandbox with original high quality content. Content is king!

    One must make a good website, and don't be stupid with spam links.

    Thank you for your quick answers. So, continuous adding of quality links. not too many spammy links and quality content, maybe written on a weekly basis, may make people avoid the dreaded sandbox.

    The key activator for SandBoxing is Link Velocity & Volume; particularly in the first 6 months of a domain's life.

    Too many links, too quickly has a negative effect. CONSISTENCY is the most important thing; avoid huge swings in link building - as this looks man-made.

    1. Sandbox is myth invented by clueless people that gets passed down from
    generation to generation.

    2. "How to avoid <blank>" is a wrong kind of question. Successful people become
    successful because they they wonder "HOW TO GET <blank>", not how to avoid.
    Keep asking "how to avoid problems" and you'll be on you way down in no time.

    You may be right, but this is how I see thinks: sometimes when you start in an industry you have no previous experience, what really matters is knowing what you should never do, not what you should do. If you start with the wrong foot, you can be out in seconds.
