    i've experienced the same things with some pdf mags. The one from the year ago is found by the searcher but the one from november is not found.

    Maybe the site got banned or the page not indexed in SE...wild guess though. 90% of PDF files don't get into SE and that's for sure :)

    actually those articles are not indexed in the search engines or like affguy08 said...
    that site was being banned by the search engine. and hence it is Dex Index

    you can check if the pages are indexed by simply running a sentence or so through the search bar of google, yahoo or whichever.
    locating sites with non indexed articles on the other hand - maybe someone with more experience doing this can answer this for you.

    If I am rewriting PLR articles is using Copyscape a sure way to make sure the content is ok for Associated Content? I've been reading some of their terms and they seem really harsh about copyrights and stuff, like fines, imprisonment, and shit. I don't want to get busted by them and go to jail if my PLR article happens to not be changed enough...

    Jail?

    I've been paying losers on Second life buttons to rewrite PLR stuff for weeks without any concerns.

    I seriously doubt they're going to send you to jail.
