    Hi Guys

    I had 2 websites ranked for multiple keywords on page 1 of google for over 2 years now getting around 20k a month in visitors now all of a sudden today they are both gone from google no where to be found.

    They still show up number 1 in yahoo and bing ..

    I didn't make any changes recently except for changing around a few affiliate links on the site. What would casue this can changing a link on the site get me banned it was going to the same type of offer just new URL

    How do I get un sandboxed or out of this and get my listings back please help!

    I had a similar thing happen to me with a couple of sites. This was back in April. Only pages that are really ranking now are new pages with video. I have recently started new sites as months of effort has not helped me.

    Maybe your site had duplicate content, this has happened to me too.

    there is no real penalty for duplicated content :) it's just a myth.
    maybe you made some hard back-linking recently ?

    Or maybe your site was blasted with 10000 profiles by your competition.

    if you search in google for

    site:YourSite.com


    and it does not return your site, your site is banned by google. every website owners nightmare.

    Shit in my google webmaster tools there is no messages and shows no errors.

    I did use one of those link things a few months back but never got sandboxed.

    if you are banned is there a way to tell? or is there a way to get your site back up?

    and they would ban 2 sites from me at the same time doesn't make sense

    Are you sure you didn't make backlinks last weeks? Hmm maybe some of your backlinks got indexed and they were not so good in the eyes of google..

    Damn. Not having an exit plan is a bummer.

    Hope it comes back for you.

    Since your site is no longer number one spot, and rankings are gone. Who is in the number one spot? Everyone bumped up a level? Is there a new site now that came out of no where that is ranking well? Did any other site loose ranking for that keyword?

    Sandboxed.

    Try this to confirm whether or not it really has been sandboxed:

    type in "site:yoursite.com" in google and see whether it shows up or not.
