Ok so here's the story. I have a site that's been hit by Penguin and I've been trying to fix it for a while now. I've come to the point where I'm ready to just copy all of my content to different URLs. Yesterday I tried a couple of different things: 1) I copied a page that I used to rank 1# for and changed the url (something like domain.com/blue-widgets to domain.com/widgets-blue) and removed all the internal links 2) I did the same thing I did in step 2, but kept changed the internal links to the new URL 3) I copied the content and posted it on my blog subdomain So far, methods 1 and 2 have failed to even get the damned page indexed. When I did number 3, however, the page was indexed within an hour and was ranking page 1. Then, the ranking disappeared. Has anyone experienced this before? This page have been removed from the SERPS because the content is duplicate? I want to get this site producing again (it's an authority site that used to rank for like 1k longtail KWs,) but I don't want to waste me time copy everything over to the blog only to have the rankings disappear!
