You mention that the post in categories making you have duplicated content on homepage post? Then you shall put canonical tag to every post you made, so you can avoid internal duplicate content.
I've already no-indexed the category pages, but I will do that as well, thank you!

In my opinion it is Google dance.
Even I experienced that but after few days rankings got better than before.

Thank you guys very much! I'll definitely wait more, and see if it moves up or not. If not, it probably is a link penalty, because apart from the duplicate content issue, the site is good.

The page I am trying to rank was inspired by a lot of English articles, but ran a plagiarism check, and couldn't find similar in my country. I'm 100% sure I am not duplicating it within the site and for the supporting articles, I did like: Keyword research and link building, and articles like "5 bad SEO techniques", "Top 3 SEO Factors in 2017".

I will have to check out my internal linking anchors, but tried to do something similar as the top 1 site, but not exactly the same. I had a widget that displayed the latest post, and WordPress automatically put it on every post I made, I removed that.

Why I was thinking about links is because the site was ranking fine, and i actually hit #70 but as you can see on the chart, it dove down.

Thank you very much for your answer mate!

Check LSI terms. If your articles are very similar to already existing ones LSI-wise, it also will not rank.

You need to do a full SEO audit of that site including content, link profile, internal linking and so on. Sites on average 100+ on SERPs have something wrong, normally those results show unrelated sites just for completeness.

Google dance isn't a reliable reaction the way it used to be. Time was, you'd drop some links... Google would bounce down a bunch, then up a bit, then down, then eventually settle with higher rankings after maybe 10-15 days. That was back in like 2012. Now Google is constantly indexing and integrating and split-testing. Sometimes you see a dip followed by a gain, but sometimes you just go down (or up). IMHO the "Google Dance" as we knew it is dead. Choppy reactions are no longer a guarantee that it will settle higher, keep an eye on it. It also may take longer than you expect. I've seen drips that took a month to gradually even out.

These days you have to know what is normal for your site, if something seems off you may be right. My sites tend to be a lot less choppy than back in the day. Smoother movements down or up. And over longer periods. But everybody seems different.

Thank you very much, guys! What I have noticed, is that the overall Keyword density for the main keyword for the top sites are higher by about 1% than for mine, so that is something i must improve. Fortunately, I paid attention to not be exactly the same as the top sites, I just used them as inspiration! Checked with copyscape premium, all of my content is 100% unique, going to check my internal linking structure as well, but the top sites use EMTs more agressively than i do. I guess my main problem was having that duplicate content issue because of the category pages, no indexed and removed that URL from search, guess we will going to see how long it takes for that to take effect.

I am going to diversify my anchor text more, going to put in some branded and generic as well, maybe that is the isssue.

The thing is, that this is a foreign site (.hu), and I know by experience that the foreign algorithm isn't that advanced as the US is. I ranked an ecommerce store for several low competition keywords with only like 3-4 backlinks and some basic changes on the on-page, but when it comes to the topic im trying to rank my site in (SEO) it feels like Google is putting much more focus on the sites.

Or maybe I'm just over complicating and it will be fixed with the on-page changes i made and the link building i'm doing. :D

Thank you!

You need to go up into 2nd or 3rd page for your main terms before you do any link building IMO.

The foreign algorithm is exactly the same as the English one. The only difference is there is less content in Hungarian for Google to compare to. The English competition is much higher on average. The algorithm is the same.
