    I have this site about a month old that I had worked up to page 10 on Google. I then did some rapid indexing and within a day fell back to page 24. I also slammed about 7,000 auto-approves that haven't shown up yet.

    Have I been sandboxed or would I even show up on the searches if I was?

    Google Dance don't fret, you'll be back up in no time. Sandbox is indicated by a site that doesn't rank in the SERPS (but still indexed).

    A penalty is usually indicated when a site is no longer ranking and de-indexed.

    if you check your page on google with site:yourdomain.com and you can find your site, it means your site is not sandboxed. yeah, google dance is the major problem since november- december.

    I have another site on page 1 that moves between 7th and 9th place but this one was like 15 pages. I'll just keep working and wait for the bounce! Thanks!

    My site doesn't appear when I search domain:site.com but it appears when I search site:site.com .

    My site rank 1 before now not in 100 rank. It is sandboxed?
