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

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...

I understand that traffic can fluctuate during different times of the year. Seen it happen myself -- traffic decline in summer and rise near holidays. However, I fear something is wrong like I have either been affected by a Google algorithm or something else. My traffic has been continuing to...

Lately I have noticed how most of my articles that have been there for a long time, are being marked as not featured. And even after trying to "fix" them they are placed in the same stage over and over again. Considering the kind of "pay" we get for our effort, it seems kind of...

Here's my problem, it's stagnant!I find that when a hub takes off the better performing ones fall back. My traffic has had the same average views for months even though a few of my hubs have finally gone wild.It's not like my entire account is suffering. Whenever there is a Penguin strike,...
