    How to know if sandboxed?

    Hello all. Is there a tool to check if site is being sandboxed? How to know if sandbox? Have you experienced a change of your rankings today? I just checked mine in Google and it all drops. Searching for related keywords would not make my site appear. Is this Google sandbox?

    There is nothing like sandbox. Its just a myth!
    Its just a term that is more often used when a site is "restricted" in some ways in performance and unable to list in SERPs. It refers to sites that have
    -Weak content
    -External duplication
    -Internal duplication (Multiple URLs)
    -Low quality backlinks
    -Poor structure
    Mixes of the above are often seen as "sandboxing".
    Firstly, You need to check whether you are partially indexed or completely indexed by using site:domain.com.
    Then check your robot.txt file

    I hope this is true. that sandboxing is not true. they say that if you link with different ip at the same time, theres a big tendency that your site will soon be sandboxed.
