What does the status and terms of this free online website healthy diagnose tool mean?
- Deindexed – When your domain is completely removed from Google. Also known as Banned.
- Penalized – When your domain or page still exists but none of your pages can be found through very direct search queries. This penalty can be automatic through the Google algorithm or manually applied by a Google Quality Engineer.

Google Sandbox effect is a state when a website gets slightly or extremely invisible from Google SERPs for Spam-filtering and quality observation. It differs from Google algorithmic penalty. Some SEOers think that Google Sandbox is for new domains only, others think it is for both old and new domains. This has not been confirmed by Google yet.
what to do when websites been punished or in Sandbox effect?
Many SEOers think that the Google Sandbox punishment can lasts somewhere between 1 and 6 months. The negative effect on rankings is very strong for the first couple of months, and by the time you’re past three months you should be pretty good. Six months later you’ll have very little Sandbox Effect at all.
