    No. There are some online tools that claim to detect whether or not a site is in the sandbox, but they are as controversial as the sandbox theories.

    If the link you posted points to your site, you are dealing with a market that is highly competitive and not looked upon kindly by Google. Google has some very strict AdWords rules regarding pharmacy sites, which shows that they do not like them very much. I worked on a pharmacy project with a client for several months and it is very difficult to achieve good rankings in that market. Make sure that your content is unique on every page. Most pharmacy sites steal content form other sites and they will never rank well due to the duplicate content filters. The client that I worked with had over 100 pharmacy sites, each with a different design, but all with the same content.

    BTW, Norton AntiVirus gives your site a clean rating (no malware), but WOT (install the Web of Trust plugin) blocks the site and gives it a very poor reputation rating.

    According to some comments by Matt Cutts, the sandbox was an unintentional consequence.

    I don't believe the "sandbox" now exists. However, there seems to be a new site boost. The new site boost allows the website to rank for a short period. But when the boost end and the website doesn't have enough backlinks, the site will fall like a rock or it's "sandboxed".

    anyone experienced such a Google behavior and can advice?
    Hi,
    in case of sandbox first thing you have to to is wait and watch. But in these time you should update your site regularly and make some back links. there are some sites which made online for testing. Then they again make that site unavailable. So google try to see some time that is it a test version site or it is really live site.

  4. Unfortunately there is no quick fix, use the little and often rule when it comes to link building and don't do anything drastic.

    That's not the approach I would take. In fact, I would concentrate on getting more on-topic links to your site, maybe even doing some other promotions, such as a few press releases.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    I didn't know you can get out of the 'sandbox'. How would you know if you're in the 'sandbox' anyway?

    You can see that I have told just after that "But in these time you should update your site regularly and make some back links." You can not do any thing with google in that time.

    To me...Sandboxing is nothing....Our SERP fluctuates when we are building links, common Google link digestion process....! So in my opinion a, Sandbox is absolutely no where in Google's algorithm. Keep on building links

    The sandbox doesn't exist. Though at time time there was a "sandbox effect".

    It wasn't completely a myth. As bogart mentioned, a few years ago there was a "sandbox effect" that prevented a new site from ranking well for highly competitive keywords for sometimes up to a year. It was even acknowledged by a Google engineer at a Search Engine Strategies Conference, although not formally. Once it timed out, a well-optimized site frequently moved into a top slot overnight.

    It was very likely one of their attempts to keep fly-by-night and scam sites from dominating the SERPs.

    It never affected sites for search phrases that were not very competitive.

    You have to keep in mind that very few things that Google does are consistent. There is a randomness factor where some sites get caught and wacked for doing something that another site escapes. The sandbox effect was the same way. Some sites got hit, while others never experienced it.
