I noticed a few days ago that my two hubs ranking on page one for keywords had disappeared off the face of the earth.
Then today I realised that even if I type 'Ethan Green Hubpages' into Google, none of my hubs come up. Even if I write the hub title and Ethan Green, nothing comes up.
Does anyone have any ideas what might have happened?
No idea but 'G' does have it's own blog going on which you can check out and determine their rationale of the Penguin update with more coming soon did you link in a bad neighborhood?
Hi Ethan Green, I just checked and unfortunately, your profile and your hubs are not showing on Google search. You were either hit by the Google Panda update launched on April 19, 2012, or by Google Penguin update released on April 24, 2012. There are a number of forum threads on this.
As you are new on Hubpages, it is unlikely that you got sandboxed, in which case you might be able to come back on Google search after six months.
Since you've only been writing on Hubpages a few weeks, I would suggest you create a new account. But first, read about the Google recent updates to avoid getting delisted again.
Thanks for the replies folks. I've done a little more research, and although I cannot find anything that explains exactly why I was delisted, it appears that Google has decided to ban my subdomain. How this could happen, when I've only been here for 3 weeks is beyond my comprehension. I can't see what I could have done to get banned and delisted. It is nonsense. And worst of all is that short of creating a new account, there is nothing I can do. But the problem is, if I don't know what I did wrong, what's the point of starting again, when I may just have the same thing happen again?! So as far as I'm concerned, this is just total bulls**t.
Thanks again for trying to help

Why did my hubs disappear from google search?More than 5 of my hubs were appearing on the first page of google search till last week of September. But now only one appears. My traffic has reduced dramatically. What should I d to overcome this?.

Hello Everyone. I have a question that I'm hoping some of you with experience can help me with. Two weeks ago I built this new profile to cover a niche topic that I know quite a lot about and go along with my budding YouTube Channel. I'm trying to create quality hubs focusing on 1300+ word articles...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at all. With all of the scrapers and with HP's brilliant program I'll soon have...

I have read a few threads now about a google slap and dropping traffic. I just had a look at my stats, got a few red arrows and a few blue ones. The overall number is pretty much my average. I feel for you guys that have had traffic drops and hope its a bit of a glitch, something that will sort...

So when I first published all my articles they seemed to average 5-10 views per day (approx.) but now they only average 0-5? I feel like each article gets a boost when it's first published, and then the articles are kinda kicked down into the archives? Is this normal? Thanks!
