    after ranking 1,3 & 8 for commonly searched keywords, my site has dissapeared after the last google crawl.

    this is a 90% whitehat site

    It happens. If it hasn't been gone for more than a week, give it some time. If it has and is actually completely out of the index, request reconsideration through Webmaster Tools. SERPs aren't static and the algorithms used to produce them are becoming more and more dynamic and efficient as each day passes. The dance works both ways. If you focus on developing good content and following the rules of the semantic web, you're going to be just fine in the long run.

    Well, if it's a 90% white hat site, then it could be the 10% blackhat stuff you're doing that got you in trouble!

    One thing I experienced was on some sites where I had a few paid text links Google lowered or removed my page rank on those sites - and traffic is going down for my keywords, too. Hopefully that didn't happen to you but it is one thing that can happen - Google decides to crack down on something that used to be somewhat "gray hat" and then you're screwed.

    If theyre competitive keywords then google might have put you into their sandbox. Its there way of combating spam websites, and you may not show up in serps for those terms over the next few months. In the meanwhile you should try ranking for less competitive long tail key phrases.

    Doesn't look like there is anything here SpeedPPC does that can't be achieved in excel.

    it all depends on how long it disappears... ups and downs happen. most of the time my sites got back to where they were before just fine

    Listen to this fellow. Particularly, read the last sentence.

    If content is good and you're not dealing with too obscure a niche, even links will come to you in the long run. What's more, SERPs themselves will become less important to you as other natural ways to attract customers will become available.

    That's long term thinking and a transition many of us should make at some point if we want to develop a business, imo.

    i get about 3k hits a day without google. but the kind of ad clicking users id prefer will come from search engines.
