    I searched the exact title of one of my articles and while tons of results came up for people who copied my article and posted it on their blogs, my blog is nowhere to be found! My site isn't banned or sandboxed or anything from what I can tell and I have several tweets and other backlinks to my original page so why is my page nowhere to be found? How can I get it back up in the rankings so when people search for my articles they actually find them?

    unfourtunately these days its not enough to simply own the content. You have to seo the crap out of yourself. Its the only way in my opinion.

    I have been doing a lot of SEO and I'm ranking pretty high for very competitive KWs but certain pages seem to be buried under people copying it.

    Yeah, I'm on the second page for two incredibly competitive broad keywords. The site is less than a year old.

    Build backlinks, and get an analysis of those sites that are ranking.
