    I've got a site which was hovering around page 1 and 2 until last week when it dropped to position 495+ and then completely off the scale. I think it's the 'sandbox' - just keep building links and it should come out stronger (apparently). I'm not giving up on mine anyhow.
    How old are your domains? I'm pretty sure that is relevant too. Mine is only about 3 months old.

    mine are about the same... so why would google do this. now i have to decide whether or not i wanna continue doing these type of sites if google would just do this crazy stuff, i was making adsense blogs that were paying out pretty good to start off and they were headed to the top 3 of the 1st page... maybe i should just stop making adsense and minisites and just concentrate on memebership sites and do social network marketing were i really wont have to depend so much on SE for traffic...

    How long you got your domain registered for?

    I hear if you have it registered for three years or more, Google thinks that the website is going to be used for a good purpose, where as sites that are only register for 1 or 2 years are more likely to be ditched after 1 or 2 years and therefore are more likely to be sandboxed.

    It may be bull, but its funny how when ive register a domain for 1 year, it quickly rises to the top page in a couple of months and then within a couple of weeks completely disappears into the sandbox.

    And when ive registered a domain for 5 years its never go into a sandbox at all.

    Maybe a fluke, but i dont know.

    Are you hosting blogs on your own domain, or are you keeping them on a blogging service such as wordpress or blogger etc...?

    Never done blogs with my own domain, so i dont know whether they get sandboxed or not.

    Sandboxed doesnt always mean gone forever, its just where google likes to stick newbie websites to cut down on spammy newly made websites taking over the top positions on the search engines.

    Just keep adding content and building backlinks and be patient hopefully you will salvage your rankings in time and get to higher positions.

    I had a whole network of 15 sites on the first page of google. 90% of my traffic was SE traffic with huge amounts of US, UK, and CA traffic. Then 2-3 weeks ago, my sites all dropped. So I'm paying for lots of backlink work to be done, hopefully that brings them back.

    so what is the use of doing these sites if google just deindexes them and throws everything out of wack, im beginning to think that doing just SE is BS unless u have a domain name that has been around for awhile but who has the time for that when u r just starting out r u serious google WTF...
