    This is odd.. my site had made it to number one for the term "Josh Powell", and then all of the sudden it disapeared from the Google index.

    Site is http://www.ki4bbo.org


    Is this normal?

    Josh,

    This happened to me - I was on the first page of google for my term and just before Christmas my site disappeared. My site has been up for about 7 years and this is the thanks I get .. haha ... I'm hoping on the next update I will be listed again.

    I visted ki4bbo.org and I searched on google and your site is not listed as you stated above - but you do have a PR6 - which is nice....
    I did have a PR5 and once my site disappeared on google so did my PR
    At least you have a PR I have nothing :-(
    Let's hope and pray they do an update soon!

    Have you had a sudden increase in links or pages indexed?

    My site which was live for 3 yrs got sandboxed or filtered in December, and I think it was because the sudden increase in pages (I jumped from 4 - 6,000 pages) and it dropped my rankings from top 5 to 150+

    I THINK I am out of this sandbox, as my rankings have come back, and its taken nearly 3 months.
