    Hi all,

    I had the number one page rank for one of my hubs, and now the page seems to have completely disappeared - even when I do the search using my tag (juliebooly). Can anyone explain why Google would have removed it? I'd like to get my rank back smile.

    Thanks!

    The first thing to ask is - is this the only hub of yours that has been de-indexed from Google? If your other hubs have too, or your traffic is down, you may have been "sandboxed", a major issue for some accounts since the introduction of stand alone subdomains.

    Next, how much traffic WERE you getting before? If it was a low trafficked hub then Google may have chosen to de-index it as not relevant to searchers or for a similar reason.

      More than 1 has gone down. What is sandboxing and how do I get rid of it?

      I was getting 30 to 50 hits a day, so I don't think low traffic was the issue.

        Have you read any of the subdomain related threads? It might be in your best interest to do so.

        Subdomains are a new thing that has had varying effects on different accounts - basically making each account its own "separate website."

        Reading some of the threads on the topic might give you the best insight into this.

    Maybe your topic getting more competitive, try to work on increasing links to your hub.

      Just a quick update - my hub did come back! Thank you for your help - I really appreciate it.
