    I guess I've just been sandboxed - Dam! All my keywords 44 of them that I keep track of which 20 were in the top 10 and the rest in the top 20 on google US, Aus & India have gone below the 100 mark (how far below I don't know as the software doesn't track that). All of them going together is surely a sign of sandboxing!

    How long does it last on average? I heard of people who had this for 6 months!?

      My Yahoo and Bing rankings are steady with their usual variations.
      I'm seeing sooo many -98 and 99's just when my traffic was increasing dam

    It could be temporary traffic fall. Stop thinking about it. Rely on other sources for traffic. Like pinterest, social networks (if you have active presence and the one that allows hashtag) and many others.

        Perhaps the previous keyword holders have reclaimed them with more relevant documents or googleness? yikes

        Find a real niche and provide better road signs! smile

          Hey Pearl I just checked some of my hubs are at their original spot. I deleted cache and they are still there on rank 1 etc. I guess market samurai flopped (its my last day of the free version after all - they maybe trying to scare me tongue)
