    I had this "great idea" to make 20 wordpress.com hosted affiliate pages (seperate gmails of course). I made high quality original content for each of them, and they worked really well for about 24 hours.

    The next day, 18 out of the original 20 had been taken down by wordpress. But here's the problem - google had indexed my hard-produced content before the pages were busted. When I do a site: search, my content is still there in google's cache, but trying to visit the sites just shows the wordpress.com "breach of TOS" message. I want to use my content elsewhere!

    1) is there any way I can get my content out of the index?

    2) if not, will new postings of my content be considered dupe content by big G?

    3) if so, how long might it take for G to remove the content on its own?

    It can take a while. I suggest making a complete unique version of it or use a software to rewrite the articles.

    :) that's a lesson for you to never put your unique and hard worked content on such crap garbage hosting :) . If you are enough serious about producing your content and wanna do it nicely , just go and buy your own domain and maybe a shared hosting account . Then play yourself with them !

    exactly. just use wordpress to get backlinks to your unique content that you host yourself. loose a link, not a big deal. loose your SERP position, big deal.
