Google SandBox Effect Revealed

Here's the reason why sites rank completely differently after the first few weeks of going live. In the first few weeks, they were initially placed in the Google 'sandbox'.

Barry Schwarz of the SEORoundTable calls this the "sandbox effect," meaning that new sites are placed in a sandbox (where they can all play nicely away from the real sites). He recently reported a means of showing a site's pre-sandbox results.

"We have found that by adding seven exclusion parameters to the search query, the pre-sandbox results are displayed."
