Up the Sandbox!Written by Keith Thompson
Continued from page 1
Since we don't know, can't know, will not know for sure until Google Gods unlock keys to kingdom and enlighten us; it only makes sense to this webmaster to get on with life. I've got new sites waiting, as do many. We all languish at PR0 until (or if) there's another update. Some sites get picked up quicker than others, and to some extent that is a measure of SEO. However just get over it! Since there's nothing concrete we can do except build great content sites with lots of relevant links (legitimate) why worry about any sandbox?!? Don't get your knickers in a knot! Write more content, articles, and get more sites to link to you because of worth of your site. There are other sources of traffic, go get them! Do right thing for your business. Spend time on it, not worrying about this.
Many of leading voices in SEO agree that there may indeed be a "sandbox", and if there is, that may not necessarily be a bad thing. You don't want some farmer (link) ranking ahead of your carefully crafted content site, do you? Of course not! One thing is sure: if there is a sandbox, it belongs to Google and if you want to play, follow rules and don't cry! Pay or play!
