    I have been reading on BHW for a while but this is my first post. I have been working on a local site in 6 months as a hobby project an was just started to rank on some of my keywords. Then when i looked at my rankings today they were all gone. Not just my front page but also all inner pages.

    If I do a site search i can see all pages are still indexed but a search on my competive keywords and the pages will not show up.

    Am I sandboxed? or what has happend. I have lately bought some tweets - can it be thoose making the trouble?
    I would be thankful if anyone had a good advise or suggestion..

    First of all, your site is not deindexed. Chill out bro. If you do type in site:url.com and see that your page shows up, you are safe.

    You'r site is maybe just dancing. Have you written any new posts lately or haven't you been updating your site?

    Maybe thats one factor. I do not think twitter messages would make any hurt to your site and the ranking.

    Just keep doing what you have done before.

    Yup, like Xstyle said if you're not deindexed, you're probably just dancing.
    Check this site out and track your rankings for a few day - if you see you're all over the place changing spots, you're just dancing aka googles re-evaluating your site and you might come back up even stronger.
    Adding new unique content + buying some manual social bookmarks will help you dance it out faster :D
    Good luck!

    I haven't done any new updates lately and that why i don't understand anything of what is happening. I will keep watching my rankings and hoping its just a dance.

    It really depends on what link-building you were doing...

    If you just slammed 100k X-Rumer links at the home page - then maybe you've been penalised (-10, -50 etc.)

    If you were doing sensible link building and not over-optimising the content, anchors and titles, then it's likely that you just need to keep on building and wait for the bounce to settle. You could also try waiting a few days - a week, and see if it settles.

    If you find that you settle about 50 lower than before, and all your efforts won't budge this, then you may bave been penalised. In that case, go after different keywords for those pages.
