    Hi,

    I have a site that ranked number #1 for a certain keyword in about a month. In that time I have done nothing and just left it alone. Then after checking yesterday I have seen that it is gone in the top 1000 search result.

    The odd thing about this is I haven't done a thing to cause this drop.

    The site's stat.

    Age:
    about 3 months old

    Backlink:
    14 to the main site and 12 inner linking. I also put interlinking plugin in that site.

    I haven't touch or updated it (except for the automated post every 2-3 days).

    Any Idea why it is sandboxed?

    What's your visitor average time on site and bounce rate?

    Also, where's the consistent link building and link velocity?

    Hi bobocea,

    Thanks for the reply,

    1st I think around 10-20 uniques per day since this is just a test blog I targeted a keyword that only have 2k searches per month.

    Also bounce rate is quite high, around 70%.

    All of the links was build in a matter of 1 week. As I said it only have 26 indexed back links.

    Thanks in advance, Just new to this stuff and just testing things out and trying to learn the things that went wrong and right. Hopefully I can earn passive income out of this.

    high bounce rate and low visitor average is the problem. Google considers quality of traffic in its algorithm nowadays

    I see, thank you very much! I will investigate more about the changes around instant release. This may be one factor why this happened.

    Also, Did google penalized me for that because I installed analytics in my site? or will it be the same even if I don't have analytics?

    Thanks again! :D

    Did you had a sitemap or a tag cloud?

    I got one of my best ripped off after I made these 2 changes.

    (maybe the ********in bot indexed all pages it hadn´t before, and the amount of dupes has led me to the box.)

    I personally wouldn't have analytics on any of my autoblogs. I'm spooked when it comes to letting G have carte blanche access to my info.

    Are you talking about XML sitemap?(Sorry still new at this :p) Yes I do have an XML sitemap but not the tag cloud.

    Do you mean having a sitemap alone can cause dups? (again new.. :D)

    They can kick off you the ranking since you don't have new content.

    1st, I don't think not having fresh content is the deal here. I have an 8 month old blog that have no fresh content for at least 6 months and still sitting in the top 4.

    2nd as I said in my post it is an AUTOblog so it means that I have fresh content every 2-3 days.

    Thanks for your answer though.

    No, not the XML, just an html or a wpress plugin to display a sitemap as links. As you know, G. tends not to index all of your pages, if they´re all dupe content. Then you shove it up his face with a sitemap. then I got banned. Got it?

    What's the visitor average time on site? 0 - 30 seconds? more than 1 minute? This also counts in the eyes of Google. Embedded movies from youtube right at the beginning of the post (or every 3-5 posts) helps alot.

    Also use that wordpress plugin to interlink pages to eachother. 3-5 pages / visit > less bounce rate!

    And put yourself in the eyes of the visitor. If you were the visitor, search for something and land on your blog... will the content make you click on related posts?

    Some people just do autoblogs with crappy content and more ads than normal. :(
