    I started a new site around January 4th about dating site reviews. I had my writer write unique reviews about dating sites and put an affiliate link for leads.

    I then distributed articles for each review and the site quickly climbed up the rankings. It was getting around 100 organic visits per day until it completely disappeared from google. Both site: and info: queries return zero results.

    I didn't do any on-page and off-page blackhat methods. No keyword stuffing, no spam links etc.

    I'm suspicious about 4 things.

    1) The site disappeared right after I put adsense code at January 22nd.

    2) One of my other sites on the same shared hosting (same IP) had a review about one of the dating sites. When the dating review site got deindexed, the review page on the other site also disappeared from the results (exactly on 22nd)

    3) Google Webmaster tools show a strange error like "domain not found" on 12 November 2010 although I bought the domain on 4th of January, 2011.

    4) I've forgotten to put nofollow to affiliate links on some reviews.


    These are the issues I'm suspicious about.

    I don't have enough experience, so I'm asking for help to solve the problem. The site is still de-indexed although there are enough links to rank it on top.

    Thanks in advance,

    did you check your robots.txt? Also check that you did not mis-configure any other plugins or your theme does not have any weird settings. Just go through everything, check your source code for meta tags as well.

    Well I checked at Webmaster tools using the fetch as google bot option.

    Everything seems ok. But somehow it's deindexed overnight.

    I'll change the theme and see if it has any effects
