    My site just went from about rank 30 to rank 982 for one keyword. For 5 other keywords the same thing is happening. Is this a dance or sandbox?

    Nothing bad. All I did was like 2000 comments, but not directly to my page, to some web 2.0 profiles and articles.

    I've had this kind of experience before with some of my sites. What some people think that's going on is your link velocity went down, and it was just a very prolonged google dance. The only way you're REALLY sandboxed is if you type your URL on the google search and NOTHING shows up. Then you're in trouble. make sure you also don't have any hidden text or anything!
