    Lightbulb Bing just dropped a website/is this a sandbox effect?


    So i recently checked out a website that has been getting a lot of organic traffic from bing and recently i see that the website is not even listed under bing when you search for its complete URL. Is this a result of that sandbox effect and is it normal for some search engines like yahoo and bing to drop websites and then get them back up?

    I just wanted to learn more about this and get some information on what that effect is called. Would it be sandbox or am i completely wrong?

    Thank you

    Thank you for your help?
    Is there anyone that can maybe help me out?
    Why would Bing drop all of a sudden?
    Is this something common with other search engines besides google?

    The site was on bing and then dropped all of a sudden after a few weeks.

    Maybe some changes were made to the site and the Bing-bots are having trouble finding the page or site again? Or something fishy is taking place with the site...along the lines of them doing something they aren't supposed to be doing. Just a few guesses though.

    Is the site visible in the other search engines?

    BING is brand new, so's their algo. Give it some more time to find a 'balance' -- and then learn that ALL se's churn/wave their results when they update their vast server farms so your sites will constantly fluctuate....

    Get used to it, we all have...and BING's no diff from the rest in that respect....
