By April

Happy New Year. Are new G sites also sandboxed? What constitutes “”doing anything””- does it include adding G drive assets and embedding them to the G site? Thank you.

Should You Wait To See If The GSite Is Sandboxed Before Sending Links To Push Them?

By April

 

In episode 265 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if you should wait to see if the GSite is sandboxed before sending links to push them.

The exact question was:

I am building a few rank and rent Google sites without GMBs (verification is something I don't want to deal with since there is no real business until site is rented.) When the G sites go live, typically they debut from page 2 to 6 without much more than on page and YouTube embeds. Should I wait to see if the sites sandbox before sending links to push them?

Will A 301 Redirected Aged Domain Bypass Google’s New Domain Sandbox And Pass On The “SEO Juice”?

By April

 

In episode 260 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if a 301 redirected age domain will bypass Google's new domain sandbox and pass on the “”SEO juice””.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys, . . . thank you VERY much as usual for your great Hump Day help :- ) . . . . Just a quick question . . . I know that you are not a fan of using aged domains for seo purposes for several reasons, like, you want to control “”branding””, finding a niche related aged domain with a “”clean”” niche related backlink profile is very rare, etc . . . . but if I wanted to use one and have it 301 redirected to a new domain for a local business site, will that bypass Google's “”new domain sandbox”” and make them treat the new domain as if it has been around for a while as well as pass on the “”seo juice”” from the aged domain? (smile) . . . . by the way. I remember your excellent advice on using your Hosting Provider's C-Panel to do the 301 redirect instead of the Domain Provider (smile)
