    My Recumbent bicycling for beginners hub was just starting to gain a lot of traffic from google. I checked it out and it was climbing steadily to the first page under "recumbent bicycling" .Yesterday it was the third listed on the first page. Today you cant find it under that and i am receiving no traffic from google as the only way it appears on google is if you actually search for the full title of the page. Anyone figured out the mystery that is google and could explain what might of happened and what i could do to change it.

    This can happen normally. Your ranking in Google can fluctuate on a hourly basis, not to mention daily. This is called "Google Dance". Don't worry, it will come back again provided you haven't done anything that can make G frown on you and think that you are trying to manipulate their index.

    linking to "bad neighbourhoods", cloaking links, having invisible text on your page , -  don't worry nne of these things are you likely to do accidently

    "Newness" is a big plus for Google, so new Hubs often get a few days in the sun before sinking into general obscurity.

    Once the Hub is no longer "new", the only way to get it back to the front page is to get backlinks to it. Lots of them.
