How To Avoid Google Sandbox

By just a little planning you can get your website to the top faster avoiding google sandbox
Here's a tip on how to beat the Google sandbox.

Sorry, this isn't going to help those of you who just launched your new site, but for those who are willing to plan ahead, it will help your next site. Most of you already know that Google initiated a filter last March that essentially dampens the ability for new sites to rank well for popular terms. The filter has been called the "sandbox".

So, how do you get around this? Don't wait until you are ready to launch a new site to launch a new site. If you are even THINKING about a new project, buy the domain NOW. Get it hosted on an inexpensive ISP and write some content for it. 5 - 10 pages will do. Then link to it from your current site (or 2 or 3 if you have them) to get it indexed and to start building PR. Then, add a new page of content every month or so. And submit it to a few directories (the free one's that will take small, unpolished sites - there's lots out there) every month to simulate slow, natural backlink growth.

By the time you are ready to actually launch your new site, you will have an "aged" domain that has been indexed and building link popularity for some time. It will greatly reduce or even eliminate your stay in the sandbox.
