I turn to the wisdom of HB for some help, please. Yesterday my Hub on travel smoothie cups was ranked No2 on page one of google with a steady 20+ views a day. Nothing huge, but making me smile. Today, I have had 1 view and when I type in the term travel smoothie cup which got me at No2, I am nowhere to be seen. So I copied the first few sentences and.... not listed. Any thoughts why overnight I have been blanked from google? Every word was mine, pictures were attributed et al. Any constructive thoughts greatly appreciated!

Hi, i appreciate the time you have taken to answer, but can't quite agree. I have many articles with many sites and this is the first time I have seen this type of reaction by google. I wont lose sleep at night, but find this quite annoying..sigh!
I've seen it hundreds of times here on HP. The alternative answers are 1. that Google is doing a bit of A/B testing 2. Google doesn't like your hubs/account. Accounts with a high proportion of sales hubs do very poorly here post panda.
You could be right there Susana S.. Google..absolute power..corrupting absolutely....am so very glad I am not like some others who rely on their online work to pay the bills... Thank you again for taking the time to get back to my query ;-)
I change my original answer. I've now seen several squidoo-like accounts with lots of sales pages that have lost traffic overnight. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/113332?page=6#post...
Lets out big sigh again... looks like I am not alone in this... Thought I had finally cracked a small niche..$25 in one day amazon sales commissions made me think the hours were becoming worthwhile.. alas... thanks for keeping me in the loop Susana
Any development with your hub that disappeared?
I was on page 4 of Google, and within two weeks hit the top of page two. Then my hub disappeared from search results altogether. Vanished on the 15th of August, never to be seen again.
Hi Soulfully. I combined another piece of work I had done on a similar subject to make a mega hub and eventually it relisted on page one of google at position 4..took about 2 months to come back. still dont know why it went on an extended holiday
