    I've been optimizing my site for about 4 months now and it was going pretty well, today all my keywords arent ranking but I still show up when searched for directly. Is this some sort of temporary sandbox for building links to fast? What could possibly be happening?

    Could be the good old Google Dance.............they are always tinkering with their algorithms...........I am sure your site will show up for our Key Words again in the next few days. Although,if you are now past 100 sites in Google Search for your key words and don't soon return to where you were or better, then slow down your linking efforts. Google likes things slow and steady............."natural" looking.

    there back as of about 10 days ago, I created a bunch of lame gateway pages and apparently google slammed me for it, deleted them, updated sitemap and requested reconsideration. A good lesson for those of you who haven't screwed up yet
