Getting out of the Sandbox
There have been many reports about the Google Sandbox over the ages of blogging, but recently Pearsonified has put up a great graphical look at leaving the Sandbox, and I thought the article deserved to be featured here.
It really is amazing how powerful Google is in terms of pushing traffic all over the Web. I have literally been wowed by the rate at which my traffic and other metrics have increased over the last two months, which is basically the time frame in which I crawled out of the Google sandbox.
When I first got into blogging, I had no idea that there was such a thing as the Google Sandbox, and for the most part, it remains a mystery to me why Google will allow certain sites out faster than others, or allow certain sites to bypass it all together. I understand its usefulness though, and it is something that should always be taken into consideration when embarking on any site, be it a blog or otherwise.
