Two days ago, my hubs went missing in Google. They are not de-indexed just don't appear on the first (gazillion) pages. Some of them were in the first 5 pages and I got some traffic (not much) but now my traffic has come to a lovely 0. This goes for all my hubs .
My account is still new(ish) so I wonder could this be a temporary thing? Could this be a Panda thing and if so what can I do about it? I doubt they are over SEO-ed as I don't do much about it.
I did a search where I copy/pasted my url to google and one of the results was strange - it was from the site that was hosted at 000webhost and as I went to the site it was taken down (for the reasons unknown to me, but I guess that it was up to no good). Could this be the reason (a bit unfair reason) as I have read that this has an impact on the page to.
It is a bit frustrating

I find this all so depressing. Can anyone tell me how long after filing a DMCA complaint does it take to resolve these issues - or is it as long as a piece of string?How does earth does one motivate oneself to write more hubs when this continues to happen.

Since I see this mistake being made again and again by new members (and a few older ones), I just want to remind you. The title of your hub is what makes or breaks it.The title:1. Is a big indicator of what it ranks for in Google. 2. Is what teases people enough to get clicks on social media. 3....

On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group. Meaning, if the Hubs before and after it get traffic, possibly the unfeatured one...
