So a week ago, my site, which has all original well researched posts written by me in 2014 got some kind of google hit and many posts went to page 8 and some posts got deindexed. Almost all my posts used to rank in Page 1 of google for around 2 years consistently. And I haven't used any Blackhat method. Many sites that have scraped my content are ranking and I got hit. How? It is a blogspot blog I had setup in 2014 and used to update it's posts regularly and used to change the date of publish to the date I update its content. Now is that possible that someone who scraped my site on let's say in March and I updated my post April and changed publish date to April, and google thought that scraped site is real and my content is duplicate? Do anyone have any idea why that happened and what should I do to recover my rankings? Mods, Please move the thread to appropriate section if it not in right section.
