When we talk about the Google Sandbox, it's really the "sandbox effect", as described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbox_effect

Essentially, when you get a new link, it takes some time before it's counted. So, you may not see rankings right away.

Google has placed filter for new websites. So, the websites are not receiving rankings or traffics for targeted keywords. That is known as Google sandbox effect. That means the brand new website is being on probation period by Google in result of this effect. The biggest reason for doing so is to stop spam related activities such as buying links to rank fast for highly competitive keywords.

Sand box is Google manual or automated panelized technique. You can read more about it from here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbox_effect

You can also check your website is panelized or not by using this tool.

Google Sandbox is a famous term for those websites that are suffering fluctuations, de-indexing, and disappearance in the search results.

Default what is sandbox in google

The Google Sandbox is an alleged filter placed on new websites. The result is that a site does not receive good rankings for its most important keywords and keyword phrases. Even with good content, abundant incoming links and strong Google PageRank, a site is still adversely affected by the Sandbox effect.

Default Sandbox

According to me Sandbox is a kind of filter where Google keep all new website for certain amount of time to prevent them for ranking high in Search Result. And this sandbox time could be 3 to 6 month and some time 1 year also.

If a site is in Sandbox period then it face difficulty to rank higher for its target keywords but in this period they can still rank well for its secondary target keywords.
