I got a question from Anthony Grace in the comments of my previous post Three Rules That ASP.NET Developers Should Know About SEO about Google Sandbox and thought of writing this short post to illustrate what is it and how to avoid it.
Google Sandbox is, in essence, the process of keeping your website outside Google search results for competitive keywords because your website has just been registered or changed owner.
When Google Sandbox
The sandbox usually starts when you register a new website and lasts from 6 months up to a year depending on factors that are only known to Google.
Google is also monitoring the domain registration information so this will also happen when the registered owner of the website changes i.e. you’ve bought a second hand domain.
Put simply, you are sandboxed when your website has valuable content and is SEO optimised and you are no where near the search engine top result pages.Tagged under:12 comments|

Search engines optimisation, SEO, is an evolving ‘science’ and it keeps changing on purpose. Most articles that I read which involve both SEO and ASP.NET usually focus on how to programatically set the meta keywords tag and they tend to make it look like very important while, as of today, it has minimal effect on optimisation.
Generally, web developers tend to turn the blind eye when it comes to SEO while a great part of SEO should be done by developers. Here are three rules for .NET developers to follow while building a site:Tagged under:9 comments|
