    Hey guys!

    I've got a wordpress blog with 7 pages. Those pages are reviews on clickbank products. The blog is one month old now. I've created 1 - 2 pages every week.

    All the pages (reviews) I've promoted with SEnuke. I used the tool almost every day to promote my sites.

    At the beginning the sites started to rank very well in google. almost all of them were in the first or second page of google.


    Furthermore I'm using MarketSamurai to track all the positions from all the sites. Today I noticed that almost every page isn't indexed in google anymore!!!

    So can anyone say what this is? is it sandbox or just google's dance?

    If it moved from page 1 to 22 or 122 then its google dance.
    If you don't see your site even if you search for your site itself then im sorry.

    well if i search for my site i find it. i even find every page in google.

    so if i find the sites they aren't deindexed right?

    So in a few days everything should be ok again I guess?

    Well, what happened to me is this: I SEO, and left some old blog in google, page 1, like rank 2 and 4 with wp-o-matic.. without setting up a cron! *smacks forehead*

    There's no new content updated to the blog, so guess what? My rank dropped. My question is, Did you stop adding new content for just a little while or did you bookmark and senuke too fast?

    How long has your site been down because a few days don't mean that you've been sandboxed, sounds like your just experiencing the Google Dance? Keep an eye on it for the next week or so, and it should return to its position if not better.

    well every week I added at least a new post to my blog and a new page.

    I was just afraid that my blog got deindexed but all the sites are still in google so I think it's just the dance... let's see what happens in a week...

    well u cant be absolutely sure after just one day. give it a week at least and if you page doesnt show up where it did before then ur domain has possibly been sandboxed. start afresh but this type build quality backlinks as u use ur blackhat tools and then u shld be fine.

    As long as it's not deindexed it's cool. It's just dancing. It may be sandboxed for a few days or even a few months. Just keep building backlinks. There's a chance that it won't come out of the sandbox if you stop building backlinks. When it comes out of the sandbox it'll be stronger.
