Sandbox Effect Update - Interesting Find!

Some hot news with this "sandbox effect theory" where new sites equal poor results.

We have found that by adding seven exclusion parameters to the search query, the pre-sandbox results are displayed. Remember the Florida update? If not see these three links, 1 - 2 - 3. The same deal applied then, at a certain period in time, you were able to use the syntax -sssss -sssss (two exclusion parameters) to see the pre-florida update.

In this case, you can use the keyword phrase followed by 7 exclusion parameters to find the pre-sandbox results. This information is a step in the right direction. My own personal example is a client who used to rank well for a non-competitive keyword phrase Negative Pressure Isolation Rooms and no longer ranks number one. This is an example of a new site that was put into this "sandbox". But by doing a search on Negative Pressure Isolation Rooms -dfsdgsdsd -sdfgsdgsdfg -sdfgsdgsdg -sdfgsdfgsdfg -dsfgsdgsdg -sdfgsdfgsdfg -sdgsdfgdsfg it brings up the pre-'sandboxed' results with the site ranking number one.


Thanks to cre8asite for the information.
