    Google sand box is an virtual area where new websites and their search rating are stored until they prove for ranking. In other words we can say it checks the standard of the website.
    Google sandbox is a filter that Google applies to new websites and blogs that want to rank in the search results for specific keywords. The filter exists to prevent search engine optimization and spammers from easily manipulating search results by satisfying all the Google major offsite and onsite factors.

    Google Sandbox is generally used for websites which are newly launched and then arouse the suspicion of Google, usually by adding a large amount of new content in a very short period of time. This appears to Google as spam; and the Sandbox is essentially a spam filter which watches for suspicious activity, reasoning that a site which adds enormous numbers of new posts, pages and content instantly is probably filling itself with duplicate content or engaging in search engine spamming.

    It doesn't exist. Webmasters expect their new websites to rank straight away when the reality is it takes a lot of time to rank for anything remotely competitive. It is just a word that gets thrown around a lot to justify the lack of results website owners are getting.

    Google Sandbox affects sites that are new, where there will generally be a waiting period of 3 - 6 months, before your site started to rank for several keywords. If you want to get out of the sandbox effect, you must do some SEO for your site for example, social media, link building, press release and article submission.

    To make it more clear let me add my words here.
    Google sandox or sandbox effect is a type of filter which avoid the rising of spam sites or new sites that wish to increase their position in search engine to avoid spamming or spoofing activities.

    Google’s Sandbox is not an authentic discipline, so the exact factors which can influence a website’s position in Google are not known. In short, most of the new websites get fall into Google’s Sandbox. However, if website goes through into the Sandbox, it normally takes six months to one year to get out and walk through in Google’s Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS). It’s better to well planned and manage appropriately it is possible for new websites to avoid Google’s Sandbox.

    Six months to one year means it is considered to leave the domain. Google Sandbox can effect only newly launched sites that are arising a lot of topics in Serp's. I still see a lot of people are doing such type of things by copying someone posts on to their blogs.

    How about if it is an old site and started to do such things. Does it effect on old sites too? What could be happen if someone who buy an aged domain and started to post a lot of topics per day?

    Google Sandbox is a filter added to new websites to check their functionality. It is like keeping a website in examination state to check its ranking and hits on popular keywords. All the new websites are kept into restriction for sometime to do a check. The existence of Sandbox is still not confirmed by Google.

    Google sandbox is similar like more familiar word memory cache of memory buffer. Google keep the newly added website in the sandbox and perform analysis work according to their guideline rule. This action is taken by the google to filter out the spam website and keep search engine result as accurate as possible.
