    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem with a lot of my keywords which were previously on pages 1-3 on Google but then just disappeared from Google completely a few months ago.After doing some research myself I discovered that we had duplicate pages relating to each keyword which had disappeared from Google after my coder wrongly gave new urls to the pages after we updated their designs. I realised that having duplicate pages on a website is a big no-no as far as Google is concerned and I was then advised as a result to re-direct the first urls to the more current ones so just one active url remains on the website for each page and therefore each keyword we are optimizing for.

    Since that point we have submitted a list of these re-directed urls and current urls to Google but the keywords have not since appeared back in their old positions on Google. And these re-directed urls and current urls were submitted about four months ago.Is there anything else I can do to try and get my previously highly ranked keywords back to their original positions? I have fixed all the issues on the website with regards to duplicate content and so i see no reason why they should not be re-installed to their original high positions on pages 1-3 on Google.I would also like to point out that some of the keywords we are optimizing for have stayed on Google`s number one page and have not been affected at all. But as far as I am aware these keywords did not have pages which were duplicated.

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Many Thanks.

    There is a few issues in one. You are talking about dupe content, URL redirects, submissions.

    In my honest opinion, look for an expert here in the forum they are plenty of peeps with expertise and hire him for a few hours and go over the site in details. You are going to get many different pointers that will make you chase your tail for a long time. Don't mix things, get an expert put everything in place don't make this an spaghetti.

    So many things needs to be check as publishing platform, header responses, code compliance, and so many other things.

    Yeah you probably need an expert to analyze it. Too many variables.
