    Crap~

    I have a site that is monetizing well. I was ranked position 2-3 in Google for certain terms.

    All out of a sudden, it isn't monetizing for the past 2 weeks so I went to look at the traffic stats. I realize my traffic fell drastically. Not just that, there was NO organic traffic at all.
    I became suspicious and did a keyword seach and found my site to be missing!

    I did that "site:" thing and my site is still there; it still displays the PR.

    Any ideas what happened? I believe someone Xrumed me.

    There are so many possible reasons.

    How old is the site?

    My site is about 2 years old.

    And no, it's not a victim of the Google's change.
    I remember after the Google's change, I did a keyword search and my site's ranking improved that time (from 3rd to 2nd).

    I guess I will try to ping it. Oh well... if it's really sabotage, I can't do much about it. Have to move on.
