    Do you mean it re-posts an older post back to #1 ?

    Do you mean the page keeps refreshing automatically, or that the post keeps being updated even though you didn't add anything or choose to update it. I think you might have a glitch there.

    I had the same problem, you can fix it! + you need some WP plugins to optimize your SEO (but some Ping defence plugin aswell, everytime a post re-updates -> WP pings it -> after a while you can get banned for Ping spamming... search BHW forums for a plugin list).

    To fix the re-update thing:
    I see you have the SEO SearchTerms 2 Plugin ... Check the screenshot to fix it . (Wp-admin -> Settings -> SSTplugin -> Promote old pages -> Off!)

    This is surely the problem, I was having the same issue about 2 months ago, and this plugin was the cause.

    i think it's good idea too to promote old post to first page.

    Yes it is good, but if you are starting out with a new blog, and the post you posted yestherday is getting on #1 everyday... and pining to 50 directories... Thats just spamming

    haha the same thing happened with me some months back when i used search term taggin 2

    quick tip : set the keyword to max 50 + remove link. or youll get 800,000 indexed pages

    and probably get DE-indexed soon.
