I'll quote it here:

The Google Sandbox refers to an alleged filter that prevents new websites from ranking in Google’s top results. Think of it like a probation period—even if you do everything right, your site won’t get decent rankings until it comes to an end.
The Google Sandbox has never been officially confirmed by Google. But many SEOs are confident in its existence, as they see sandbox‐like effects when trying to rank new websites.

So what’s the truth? Does the Google Sandbox exist in 2018? If so, how do you prevent Google from “sandboxing” your site?

To answer these questions, I reached out to a few SEO practitioners to learn what they think about Google sandbox in 2018, based on their experience with new websites.

The Google Sandbox is a kind of filter to place all the new websites under restrictions for a certain period of time to prevent them from ranking in Search Engine Result Page (SERP). The idea behind the Google sandbox is that newer websites are not as relevant as older sites, and they are also more likely to be spam. For this reason, they are restricted and allowed to mature before being allowed to rank well.

Hope you get your answer.
