    I previously hosted all my sites under 1 reseller account and had many ranking well on page 1 or 2 of google espaecially those where the domain name was the keyword i was optimised for. I then had problems with the host so moved them all to another company. Change went ok and sites kept their rankings after being crawled at new IP, however Over the last month or so all my sites appear to of disappeared i.e. they are still up and running but I cant find them on the first 5 or 6 pages.
    One for example was on page 1 of google then disappeared. I then submited a reinclusion request where it re indexed to second on page 1 but a few days later was gone again.

    Most of the sites are the same minisite template but with original content.
    They are blatant adsense sites but were ok before.

    Could it be possible the whole IP has been sandboxed or that they have penalised me?
    I have re-submitted a reinclusion request for my best earning site but have probably spammed them now and as yet it still hasn't appeared.

    I was earning ok money and now pennies. I have become very disillusioned all of a sudden and contemplating giving up!

    Any ideas and anyone know a tool or site that will tell me where my site ranks for a term?

    Thanks :(

    Having your site's hosted in the target market with individual IP's can help.

    Yeah I think they will have been sandboxed. The advice is not to host more than 10 sites with one IP. If one goes down, it takes all of them with it.

    However, if the domain is owned by someone else, it seems to change things. I have a few sites on a reseller package, the ones that are in the same ownership are sandboxed, I know that. But some clients sites on the same server do really well. Google reads the whois, we now that - not sure if thats what it is or not. I also think site design and "similarity" is checked - hence why minisites using the same template tend not to work too well in the long run.

    Kirsty at has a great blog in which she covered recent google changes to their overoptimisation filter. Kirsty's excellent blog.

    You might be being hammered by this.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with made for adsense sites any more than loot or TNT, or guardian classified pages are "wrong" but google may think differently.
