Post 3+ Months Ago

I was just wondering a bit about the sandbox.
The theory I heard is that the site when first built shoots up the serps (possibly because of fresh content) then gets sandboxed for about 3 months. I have also heard that links to the site do not show up in google for about that length of time.

My Questions
1 If you change the text in existing links to a new phrase will it take affect straight away.
2 if you keep putting new content in a site will it stay out of sandbox
3 if you redesign an old site will your new site get sandboxed

if you can help me with anything I would appreciate.

I think the main goal of the SBE is to catch sites that come online with 100's of links already in place....this is not natural behavior for a new site....no site is linked to before it appears on the search engines.

I have a test going where I bought a domain and put a site out there with one link..just so I could get the initial crawl..I'm adding 5 links a month to see if that will by pass the effect...once the effect is passed I'll pile on the links and see what happens......I'll keep everyone posted as to the results.

if you are well in tune with the blog world you would see that tons of sites come from nowhere and get hundreds or thousands of links almost immediately. that is how good ideas naturally spread around the blog world.

if the penalty was just on new sites then people would just buy more domains and rest them on various cheap hosting.

getting the links is what is expensive and likely is what would be targeted by Google.

no I don't do any blogging but I still believe that sites that are new and have 100's of links in place are not natural. In my opinion links from blogs are no different from free for all and link farms. The links are not posted by the site owner for the purpose of good content lnking...they are normally put there by the linked to sites owners...most of the content that surrounds the links are nonsense. I'm not knocking blogs...some of them are very good...but others are useless....just like some link pages are composed very well and some are not.

"if the penalty was just on new sites then people would just buy more domains and rest them on various cheap hosting. "...I haven't seen any sites that were online before Jan 1st 2004 show any effects of the Sandbox...this has been discussed at length in many forums....those sites that were on line before 2004 and rank poorly usually do so for other reasons.
