Yes I'm seeing the same thing - for my primary keyword we appear on the first page from nowhere and other search terms are now on the radar. Obviously I hope that this is not a Google blip!
Oh and for all the good advice I've found on this forum on help us get that first page position - you stopped me going round in optimising circles.

Can you let us know how long they were sandboxed for?
Perhaps they just did a major sandbox release. Seems they may have forgotten about doing this for awhile, as many were complaining at SEW that they were in it for 12 months or more.

I think I watched Google start experimenting with this about six months back. I'm pretty sure that they've started making a big move toward this trend around 5-8 days ago.
Try it at home - take your blog or article sites where you were enjoying decent rankings in the past but aren't seeing good rankings now and plug that term into Google news and see what happens. I'm working with too small a pool of sites to come up with positive conclusions, but the evidence I have all points to this.

I'm seeing the same with the Blogs I follow. How interesting.....

After following this site, I totally believe in the sandbox.

For some reason I just thought that Google would be releasing websites from their individual sandbox as a continuous and on going process - with what people are reporting here it seems to suggest that it is done as a periodic update.
I know that the sandbox theory is shrouded in mystery but are whole sites sandboxed or are individual web pages sandboxed? i.e. If after 6 months a website wins a good position (and we agree that it has therefore likely to have been released from the sandbox) would a sub web page that had been optimised for a particular search term and been added the week before benefit immediately - or would that page have its own sandbox?
Anyone like to hazard an opinion?

It does appear that there's been a big release of a bunch of sites from the sandbox so perhaps that's how they do it. My fairly new site hasn't come out of it at this point, but I wouldn't expect it to as it's not old enough yet.
Hopefully all those who've been waiting for 12 months will be happy today! Will have to check that SEW sandbox thread to see what they're saying over there.
