    Probably did not get de-listed: Search in Google for your entire URL.

    -If results come up you are ok. Just continue backlinking, adding content etc... This happened to one of our sites more then a few times until it aged a little more. Would go from Page 2 to sandbox and back. We just keep up the same routine everyday and now it grabbed the ranking we needed and has stopped dancing.

      Shane hit this on the head... As long as your site didn't get completely deindexed, then you should be all right. Google is just trying to sort out where your site should be in the rankings since it's a "newer" site. Keep getting backlinks!

    There is no need to worry about this. Your site will come up again and I have faced similar situation. It is completely natural and while building links this may happen. Keep building links and if possible add some good content.

    What really confuses me is that Market Samurai is STILL ranking it and the ranking is moving up and down slightly for my keyword....but in google it is NOT indexed for that keyword... This site links directly to a 'get more info' sales page....... any other thoughts?

    thanks all!

    If the site is less then 6 - 8 months old, do not expect stable rankings in the search engines. I have seen sites 12 - 16 months old that still floated in the results pages.

    Dont worry about it - your site might take 2 or 3 weeks to return, but it will show back up.

      What is odd is that Market Samurai is still showing the site ranking going up and down in google...but its not where its supposed to be for my search term.......
