    what could it be? if your site is sandboxed, it'll not appear in SERPs at all right?

    lol no. It is NOT good when SERPs drop. Eventhough, serp drop can be google dance but it might as well be a penalty of some sort. You can get a number of penalties depending upon various factors. If you get a huge penalty, then you drop out of the SERPs ( ie. from the primary index of 1000 webpages).

    To check if your site is sandboxed or not, do the following :

    site:yourdomain

    Eg: if your website is hello.com then you search in google for

    site:hello.com

    If you see hello.com results after searching, then you are not sandboxed. If you see NO results in after that search, then you have been sandboxed.
