Google Sandbox: Does this exist? if yes, how to get out of it as a new website

Hello Guys, I’ve launched a new website. I am working on it & trying to rank. I was able to rank one of the competitive keywords within 2 weeks on page 2 of google approx 19th position. But I just a day or two I was thrown to page 6. Is it because initial period for any new website is considered as google sandox. What’s your take on it

Google sandbox was a term used to refer to a site being restricted in some way. It’s an old term, and now more of a myth than anything else.

Unless Google has notified you that your site has acquired a penalty, there is nothing at play here beyond a new site settling down as Google crawls and indexes it.
