It seems to me that pages are not dropping from the index for affiliate content, duplicate content or anything particularly "wrong". As I've posted before, all my dropped pages were written in about the last five months and none were linked to my home page. Last Thursday, I put up a list of "New pages on mysite.com", linked to the dropped pages. Today they are all in the index, although not ranking very well. At least they're there! Which is a step. Curiously, in combing through my new pages last week, I discovered that one was scraped. That page was indexed both on my site and the scraper site! Go figure.
