My hub was penalized- What now?

    I just saw my emergency survival kit hub go from the 80's down to 40- I didn't see any flag on it- it just dropped. After going back into it I realized that the checklist information that I had put in there from a gov. site actually had 4 of the same links in it- and including the one I put in made a total of 5- so I'm assuming that's why I got penalized. Now that it's dropped should I just leave it alone ( I removed the checklist) or do more revision?
    Other than that checklist everything I else I wrote was original content
    That was a shocker to see the score drop like that!

    when it happened to me I changed somethings around but I left it unpublished for a week and the numbers started coming back up when they got up high enough I republished it but I bet darkside has some better tips on that one dorsi~cool~cya.

    I would alter it otherwise it will stay penalised and traffic will drop.

    It's rebounding since I took off the links- climbing back to 60 now. So I'll go back in and add the checklist without the links...lol...
    Hmm everyday you learn something new here!
