    G took away my page rank about 2 months back. Why, you ask?

    This is the situation:

    I decided to re-do my white hat website and i didnt feel like making an brand new website layout so i took one of my competitors websites. I left it up for like 2 weeks and didnt change anything but our company information on the page. I didnt think google would index it that quickly but they did and my PR dropped to 0 . Now since then i have kept the same layout but changed all the pictures and content in the entire website. However the html page names are still the same.

    Since i no longer have duplicate content on the website how long will it take G to giive me back my PR

    also will google consider the html code as duplicate content being that all the image sizes are the same the tables are the same size colors are similar etc.....

    The theme will not be considered dupe content. It's hard to say how long it will take for them to unpenalize you. I'd say 1-3 months.

    well, my guess is that you inadvertantly copied/pasted stuff that left footprints....image names, html codes, stuff like that

    live and learn....you coulda just hired a webdesigner to redo your site for you

    yea i will wait it out and i never contact google its not like they listen haha

    i could have hired a person but didnt really want to.

    i did copy the entire site this included:
    images
    names of images
    folder names
    flash header
    all text content
    html page names and everything else on the site


    but i have changed everything now i was going to do it eventually just needed a temp site for those 2 weeks but it was a mistake anyways everything is changed, i also pass copyscape and plagium.com so that should be good right?

    the only thing still the same is the html page names. Do you think i should change them?

    also i have taken many of my images off of google images.

    I renamed them and put them on my site will google think they are duplicate content?

    so having the same html code is deff not duplicate content???

    I rearranged my websites about a month ago and they all lost pagerank. It takes a long time to come back.

    The only thing that matters is your SERPS.

    Pagerank doesn't put money in your pocket, & it dosn't directly effect your rankings. Stop crying and build more links ;)

    PR probably plays a part in googles SERPS otherwise what is it there for?

    OP, like someone said above, Google will not Penalize your site for Dupe Template. If its the case, then Hundreds of Thousands of Blogger and WP Blogs wouldn't be having PR now ;)

    Your best bet to regain your lost PR will be to do some Good SEO on it.

    i highly support this undertaking. we don't need any negative, non-constructive crap over here. we're here to make money, let's make money. advice is ok, judging sucks balls.

    wow tuff crowd all i was doing was asking a question.

    as i stated above i needed a temp website mine was to crappy i had full intentions to change it and what you all dont know is my competitor is a friend and they told me i could use the website so .....

    I would appreciate it if Nytrolic & Micallef no longer participated in this topic. Negative attitude is not the way to go.
    Thank You
