    You are still in the index. I found 78 results for "site:www.gettingcollegegirls.com"

    You are most likely in the sandbox.

    Edit - had to add " " because WF likes to convert links you don't want to actually convert.

    I can't tell you what happened, nobody can. But what I can say is that a site of mine just did that. It was on page 1 of Googlage.. then completely fell off the earth... and now it's back. Took about a week. I'm not sure I buy all the black hat myths tho.. Otherwise I'm going to start black hating for my competition to destroy them.

      I guess 'black hating' the competition is exactly what you should be doing, right?

      Okay, I'll get back into my 'pedantic spelling-nazi' hole now,

      Cheers,

        I think all Affiliate Marketers should unite and black-hat Google.com. It'd be a tall order, but if anyone can do it...

        the funny thing is that you quoted his use of 'black hating' while simultaneously calling yourself a nazi.

    This sometimes happens, especially when you build "good" links to your site. The site disappears from the results and reappears at a higher position a few days later.

    Google looks at how long it takes your site to load.

    When I went to your site, it took a really long time for your site to load for me. I would look into changing some of your images into thumbnails.

      Google dance.. plain and simple.

      Your site still has plenty of indexed pages so no problems at all.

      Whenever you build an influx of links a Google dance is common. In fact, it's usually a good sign as generally whenever my sites "dance" they come back ranking stronger than they did previously.

      It's just the way the search engines work. Google is basically taking your site away due to the new links and reevaluating it's position. It will then return soon, generally higher than it was before.

      Don't worry about it - Keep building links and doing what you're doing. Nothing to be alarmed about at all.

      Actually, this is something else I was also considering... Will start doing converting. Know any good wp plugins I could use?

      Also, do you know if google times the loading speed of the home page, individual pages, the whole site?

      I noticed since I did those articles with all the pics, that the site started loading slower. If I move them off the home page, do you think this will help? What about loading them onto another host like a blogger or posterous account?

      I hope this is the case. I'm thinking Ill just wait it out and see what happens.

      Will work on the site loading speed in the mean time.

      Thanks for the help everyone
