Google: There Is No Google Sandbox

Google's Gary Illyes replied on Twitter to an SEO saying there is no Google Sandbox. @seobybrett we don't have a Google sandbox — Gary Illyes ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ (@methode) December 12, 2016 The Google Sandbox concept dates back to 2004 , and back in 2005, Google's Matt Cutts said there is no sandbox then as well. However, many SEOs felt there still was a Google Sandbox. In fact, just a couple years ago, many thought there was a Google Sandbox 2.0 but that conversation died down a lot.
