The Sandbox effect (also known as sandboxing) is a term used to describe how Google ranks web pages in its index. Its presence has been speculated about since 2004, but has yet to be proven, despite many contradictory assertions.
According to the sandbox effect theory, connections that are typically weighted by Google's ranking algorithm, such as boosting a webpage's position in Google's index, may be filtered to prevent them from having a full impact. According to certain findings, the active age of a domain and the competitiveness of the keywords used in links are two major criteria that cause this filter to activate.
