    Hi guys,
    Thank in advance for the help. One of my pages got hit by recent penguin update, that being said I deleted that page and created a new one. The old page redirects to the new page. For exemple www.domain.com/dentist-CA (old) redirects to www.domain.com/dentist-california. Any one knows how I can stop the redirect? Thank you

    If you have done 301 redirect ........ then you can remove the 301 redirect code from the old site's server......!

    Check inside your root .htaccess file for any 301 redirect code if you see a line comment it out or delete it.

    I installed that plugin and did a 404 for the old page url and still nothing, and my .htaccess has the basic stuff in it. I cant find anything on this problem. Thank again

    I had this issue with one WP installation where the 404 page would redirect to the latest article....maybe that's your problem.

    In Firebug you'd see a 404 code but the content still showed the post text....
