    I recently copied the about page of another website for a quick temporary step, as i somehow deleted mine.

    I just ran a search on my website, and it is no where to be seen. I was ranked #4 for a highly searched keyword, and now none of my pages are really anywhere high as they used to, infact i can't find them

    I have also noticed that the site i copied is not #1 anymore. Could we both of been penalised?
