    i have a wordpress blog with a mainsite.
    on the mainsite i have a 1000 words article and on the blog i have 20 posts á 500 words. yesterday i installed a plugin that will randomly show 2 of my posts on the mainsite. before i installed the plugin my site for the main kw was #5 on first page, now i am #438. can anybody tell me, if my site is just dancing or is it a penalty for dublicate content because of the plugin? name of the plugin: Query Posts.

    ok
    your article are unique or copy from another site? If unique, your site maybe just dancing, but you copy from another site, it maybe drop permanently

    Because of random posts showing up, how can u assume that Google took it as Duplicate content? Or are those articles really copied from some other source?

    I don't know if it is the dance or a penalty not, but I'd definitely take the plugin off personally.

    It doesn't sound like the gain is worth the risk.

    the plugin takes 2 of my 20 posts and shows them on the main site. the posts are unique and only from my site.
    i was stuck on #5 for awhile so i had to do something.
    i just rechecked my rankings for main kw and i jumped from #438 to #304. so it looks like it is dancing, right?

    can anybody help me?
    i have seen google dance, but not going back over 300 spots and not coming back the same or next day...
    i am now on #364. it just looks really wired to me. but why would google give me a penalty for randomly displaying 2 of my 20 posts on the mainpage?

    Sounds like a dance. Why not give it a few days.
