I have a website whose ranking was moving between 1 st and 5 th page for a highly requested keyword due to major change I did and I expecting those fluctuations.
Just as the ranking where settling I had a major bug on my website with lots of duplicate content pages ( what I mean by major I multiplied the number of pages of my website by about 25 )
I fixed the issue and my website is almost back to its original size.
My question ; what should I expect in terms of ranking see that when the bug happened google had not finished ranking me, it was still fluctuating.
Should expect it to start from scratch again as I was the first day I made the changes and before it started fluctuating or should I expect it to rank me where it last saw me before the bug ?
