How to Get Out of the Sandbox (In 2016)

Do You Want To Get Out Of The Google Sandbox? Well Here’s How…

For those of you that do not know what the Google sandbox is, here is how it works.

When you first begin to develop your website, such as add content, use search engine optimization, ect., you may find that everything is going smoothly.

You begin to see traffic flow into your website and you really start to think that you are off to a great start and your website is improving.

You may even start to make sales from your website.

Then one day, you check your website and notice that everything has gone downhill.

Google completely just shuts you off.

Your hopes were up and you were beginning to get excited about your future as an affiliate marketer.

And now

You are at a complete loss, you no longer see any traffic coming in and you may have gone from making some money to making no money at all.

If this sounds like a situation you may currently be in, congratulations, Google has officially put you in the back of the bus.

You are now hidden in the 50th page of Google and it will now take you up to 6 months to get out of this mess.

Now when this happens

  • Do not panic
  • Do not become very stressed
  • Do not give up

Too many people decide to completely give up when this happens.

They suddenly give up hope for their website and their future as an affiliate marketer.

Do not do this.

There is a way out.

What You Should Do If You Are In This Situation

I listed a few things that you should not do.

Now what should you do?

You should keep going.

Keep creating high quality content often.

Also keep using search engine optimization to improve your website’s rank in Google.

You also need to keep looking for different ways to drive traffic to your website.

Try using social media as this will not only create a community of people for your website, but it will also give you another source of traffic to your website. 

These platforms are essential in making your mark within your niche, as well as developing more traffic.

The more successful you are on social media, the more successful your website will be.

This is not the only factor that goes into driving traffic to your website, but this is a great opportunity that way too many people miss out on.

You can also share your post on these websites and have your followers share the post as well.

Social media is a great way to spread the word of your website.

How To Get Out Of The Google Sandbox

As mentioned before, you should keep working on your website to increase the value and quality of what you are providing.

This will also increase your rank in Google depending on your search engine optimization, such as your use of keywords and social bookmarking.

You should also use social media to leverage your success and drive more traffic to your website.


This will also be useful in the future when it becomes essential to have a community of interested users.

They can help spread the word and promote your website even more.

Remember to be patient because this process could take up to a year to get your website ranked high in the search engines.

So here are the essential tips to get out the Google sandbox:

  • Keep providing useful, high quality content
  • Continue to use search engine optimization on your website
  • Branch out in other ways to drive traffic to your website
  • Be patient and wait until you are back at the top again

The last step is possibly the most important step.

Without patience and ambition you will not continue to improve your website.

You cannot keep going if you want to give up.

Over time, you will be back at the top of Google search.

When you are back at the top as long as you continue to improve your website and provide quality, you will not have to encounter this hurdle ever again.

You should be able to enjoy being at the top, gaining traffic, and making a lot of money.

This typically only occurs when a website is still new.

You will be at the top for about a month and suddenly you will fall behind.

Do not be surprised if this happens, stay calm, and keep trying to rank high again.
