Has anyone experienced any of their Hubs being sandboxed by Google? Is it possible? just curious...
Sometimes my hubs appear in Google then completely disappear for a week or so (go deindexed), and eventually come back and stay there for ever ;-) (well, I hope so).
I am not sure what you mean by "sandboxed," but in reference to charlemont's reply, yes, I regularly have Web pages (not just Hubs) which show great fluctuation on Google. This is usually when the page is only in the first few months of its existence or when I have included fresh content, yet to be crawled and indexed by the spiders.
Thanks for your responses. I've never really tracked where my Hubs were as far as placement. That's why I didn't know if sandboxing Hubs was possible. I've heard other complain of the same as you two have though.
When I analyze my hubs I always looked at Google Analytics to see what keywords are/were being used to find my Hubs and then built new ones around those longer tail keywords many times. And, go figure, they (often) end up being my better performing hubs (probably because they have lesser competition than the larger keywords I was targeting).
Any page is subject to being put int o a sandbox. For highly competitive terms Google it is very unlikely that you will rank well quickly. Google likes to take some time to let a page prove itself. For less competitive terms this is not an issue because there not enough quality information already to exclude new content.

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...

I'm not sure if any of you have heard of a FlashMob, but I think that they are awesome. Basically it's when a group of people go out and do something ridiculous together just for the fun of it and the reaction from...
