    I have a blog which was doing good but now it's going down pretty bad after penguin 2. I used to get around 5k unique visits which has now come down to 1k and still reducing . My main concern is about copied articles. In starting I used to copy all good articles related to my niche which was working good for me for around 6 months but now they are no where in google. I think this is causing the downfall of my blog.

    now my question is whether to delete all copied post (around 150 out of 800 posts) or should I go changing each one by one which will take 3 or 4 months?

    Delete the junk as soon as possible and try to de-index the inner pages

    Why did you copy it on the first place?
    Don't play with your authority sites :)

    I thought of editing it later on but never got time to do it. My blog was doing good even with copied content but after penguin 2.0 everything changed.

    As blakester said, remove the pages that are no longer ranking and rewrite the pages that are potential to comeback. Once rewritten, bookmark it and share on the social media to regain the ranking.

    For the 404 error you can try to press f5 or type the site url in the address bar.

    My suggestion would be delete the content you have.And start writing new contents which are much more unique than the older one. Safeguard it using content lockers.

    Let me share you a website which i think will be useful to you....!

    You should change all the content of the blog because copy content and spin content have no worth. If you will put the 100% unique content into your blog then result will be different.

    Write quality and original contents. If you want to spin the articles, make sure there is nothing similar between the original and spun articles

    Delete the copied articles. Write unique and quality content. Use social networks to make your blog popular. Try to add youtube video. It gains popularity immediately. If you cant write hire content writers.

    If the there is still 404 error after pressing the refresh button or F5 key several times, try to clear your browser's cache if you think this error is caused in your end.

    Soundalike you have a content issue... Go through and get rid of any crappy content, keep the good stuff and only add content that is appealing to your audience
