What a Stupid I am!
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hi everybody

I am new and I made a stupid mistake. On 6/16 I submitted an Article titled: "Online Home Business: Is It Right for Me?" and submitted to EzineArticles. They approved it and immediately gave me an Expert writer Status. When I searched google typing the exact words I saw it at first page at number 3 position.

I was overwhelmed. Came back to my EzineArticle account and stupidly pressed edit button. I don't know what happened. I didn't edit a thing. But I checked google. Number 3 position is still there but after clicking, it is showing that url has been mooved. Then I checked EzineArticle account again. It was showing "problem: not live".

So I re-submitted it and explained it to support desk.

What I have done wrong?
Is it possible to regain the google position after resubmitting?

Stupid Khondoker

Hi,
You are not stupid, we are humans, and sometimes our fingers have their own lives.
I don't know what happened but if you press the wrong button and don't click OK/submit/etc, and click back or just close the window, it will not save the changes you made.

Now that you submitted the article again, I guess you will keep your SE ranking until something better will come along.

You are not alone, I did the same thing. In my case EzineArticles actually rejected my resubmitted article, even though nothing was changed. It took a few days of writing back and forth to get it resolved. Hopefully that won't happen to you. Just goes to show that we all make mistakes, even EZA.

I think maybe they assumed you had edited your article, and had to go through the submission process again. Sometimes it takes a couple days for an article to be approved (or re-approved).

Lesson learned

I have done that at Ezine and it sucks because you have to wait for the article to be reviewed again and pray you don't get a picky reviewer. I had an article sitting in the modified section for a week before I realized it lol

Thanks Tanny
When the incident happened, my 3 year daughter was pulling my shirt trying to get my attention, I was not sure what I did in hurry. You know how it is!
But the good news is it took 5/6 hours only to straighten the things after I hit re-submit button. Lucky I am!!!
