    looks like your site has been sandboxed.

    Not to sure about that but after I upgraded from vb 3.x to 4.x there have been alot of 500 errors due to the change of url structure, submitting a fresh sitemap for the updated forums seems to have fixed that though. For the most part I'm also receiving more traffic every day, about 10-20 more unique visits each day.

    EDIT: Turns out while I was resetting the templates after the vbulletin upgrade it also wiped the google analytics code which I'm re adding right now.

    I have had the same problem in the past and I never knew what it was. I just thought it was an error in the anaylics.

    Do we have to pay for Google analytics service? OR is it free?

    Google Analytics is a free service offered by Google. You should have a gmail though to access it

    www.google.com/analytics

    Free.. but with a price. All of google's free services come with a price. Access to your information.

    Just wondering how you guys can tell the site is sandboxed based on this crazy bounce rate fluctation? I'm interested to understand it better.

    You just check google. If you're not in the top whatever that you were before and you are somewhere unknown, then you're sandboxed.
