    Personally don't really believe in the sandbox anymore, sites are indexed so fast these days and the only kind of sandboxing is being penalised.

    when Google found your website as spam or linked with site not which are not good then for some time Google stop crawling your site, and send it to the sand box.

    The "sandbox" effect is usually just Google's way of taking "time out" if you would like to call it that while it takes stock of all of your links and recalculates where your site should be.

    The sandbox is when your website goes from having good rankings to being almost impossible to find.

    I personally don't believe in the sandbox. I've had rankings disappear before, but they usually bounce back within time.

    Google sandbox is an age filtering algorithm by Google in order to filter the over optimized site and spam sites. New site needs to spend some time, usually a span of 3 months or so in order to be rank well in Google. This is mainly to reduce the spammy content raising quickly in search engines.

    Way to get out from the Google Sandbox:

    1. Checking if Google Webmaster Tools report any problems
    2. Make sure your server is healthy and fast
    3. Creating XML sitemaps
    4. Examining your URLs for problems
    5. Creating Custom 404 Pages
    6. Avoiding dirty Ips and bad neighborhoods

    The Google Sandbox is very similar to a new website being placed on probation, and kept lower than expected in searches, prior to being given full value for its incoming links and content.

    The Google Sandbox Effect is a theory used to explain why newly-registered domains or domains with frequent ownership changes rank poorly in Google Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS). In other words new websites are put into a “sandbox” or a holding area and have their search ratings on hold until they can prove worthy of ranking.
