Ending The Year With A Google Sandbox Reexamination

Since everyone else is blogging about our Google Sandbox discussion at the Search Engine Watch Forums, guess I'd better get on it as well. Getting Out Of Google Sandbox Using Subdomain & Redirection was the thread that started things, where moderator Dave Naylor shared with members the tip he gave out at SES Chicago on breaking out of a sandbox-like effect. That brought out later an entire reexamination of whether there really was a sandbox at all. Barry over at Search Engine Roundtable said all the "big dogs" were participating. Yep, a lot of our most highly rated members are in there spinning out examples and having a fine time discussing things. It got so good I decided to spin that portion off to a new thread, which you'll find here: 2005 Year End Revisit: Is There A Google Sandbox?
