Is this unusual practice of deindexing?

    Hi there,

    I've got a website running for about 9 months and I've wrote 70 articles on it. I wrote consistently every two days but for over 40 days I stopped writing. By that time, all of my articles got slowly indexed but I had to stop writing for a short period of time. Now that I started writing again and wrote exactly 2 articles, I went in Google Webmaster Tools to send them for indexation and all of a sudden I saw that my older articles started being deindexed.

    It's strange because I hadn't written in almost a month and a half and the curve of indexation in Google Webmaster Tools was in align with the number of my articles. Now that I started submitting article again, Google started removing my indexed articles. From all 75 they went to 62 in just 4 days. That's a lot!

    Should I worry about this? Are my articles punished in some way by Google or is it just a normal practice of Google afer a sudden period of inactivity?

    Thanks you.

    It may happen when you`re using wordpress cause depending the theme it may produce duplicate content/urls and google may remove some of these if you have. Also Google may index those again cause sometimes there are weird fluctuations. For google it really doesn`t matter how often you post the content and it`s not the reason. I have sites with 200k pages posted all at once and all are indexed almost a year.

    Cheers
