My keywords have disappeared from Google
I have a problem with a lot of my keywords which were previously on pages 1-3 on Google but then just disappeared from Google completely a few months ago.
After doing some research myself I discovered that we had duplicate pages relating to each keyword which had disappeared from Google after my coder wrongly gave new urls to the pages after we updated their designs. I realised that having duplicate pages on a website is a big no-no as far as Google is concerned and I was then advised as a result to re-direct the first urls to the more current ones so just one active url remains on the website for each page and therefore each keyword we are optimizing for.
Since that point we have submitted a list of these re-directed urls and current urls to Google but the keywords have not since appeared back in their old positions on Google. And these re-directed urls and current urls were submitted about four months ago.
Is there anything else I can do to try and get my previously highly ranked keywords back to their original positions? I have fixed all the issues on the website with regards to duplicate content and so i see no reason why they should not be re-installed to their original high positions on pages 1-3 on Google.
I would also like to point out that some of the keywords we are optimizing for have stayed on Google`s number one page and have not been affected at all. But as far as I am aware these keywords did not have pages which were duplicated.
Any advice would be gratefully received.

I think you have penalized by Google because many sites’s ranking has dropped after the new panda update.

Yes,Our couple of sites keyword rank and alexa rank going down continue. I'm doing normal seo which done before. But not get good result. May be its new panda update effect.

It's the google panda update effect.
Update your website with fresh content and Continue to build backlinks.

Try to use your all keywords relevant pages and use those keywords to the website content with a proper keywords density and try to use those keywords in alt tag and a tag including h1 h2 , i think it will solve your problem.

Yes I think this problem occured at the same time as one of Google`s Panda updates. If i continue to add good relevant content and use proper keyword density on the pages how long before my keywords will gain their Google ranking back? Previously these keywords were all ranked on the 1-3 pages of Google and I want to get them back there as quickly as possible.
