    I have been visiting blackhatworld for the last two years. Learned a lot. But, this problem is so strange. I registered an account so that I can post it here. Please help. what happened was that I ordered a guest post at lifehack through one of those seo sites. I found that the post (Thi is my first post. I can not post the link. please refer to my attached pictures for post address) was indexed and then deindexed (not all the time) after a few days. Instead, the scraper content is indexed and ranks. I found a few strange thing about it. Would like find the answers to it.

    I was using site:the_whole_url as the key phrase(refer to capture_a.jpg) to determine if the post is indexed or not. Of course, I was using chrome incognito mode and google.com. Here are what I see and my questions.

    1. I would like to understand how this happens? That lifehack post was actually indexed for a few days then disappeared from google.com. Instead, the scraper content is indexed. Refer to capture_a.jpg and capture_b.jpg

    2. What is more strange about this is that if you go to uk or some local version of the google with the corresponding area ip. If you search for the same term (site:the_whole_url), once a while (not all the time) you will see that lifehack post is indexed. Refer to capture_c.jpg Hope does this happen? So strange

    This is quite strange to me. Hope you guys can help.

    Stuff dances around all the time. I wouldn't worry about it, wait a few weeks and see if it comes back.

    I understand it's deindexed instead of moving around in the rankings but I think it will come back in a few weeks.

    The lifehack post was posted 12/5. It is two weeks. So, you are saying that it will dance for like a month before it settles? I know google dance but do not know it will last this long. Google dance usually refers to rank change. But, being indexed or not at google.com (use site:the_whole_url to check) should not change? Also, why it shows that no indexation in google.com when you can find the post is indexed at google.** sometimes after two weeks..
