Few months ago one of my website was scrapped by [name removed], I reported it to Google. Today I found out that almost all of my websites have been scrapped by this website. The problem is my sites are ranking below the scrapped pages on Google and my rankings are dropping all over.
What do I do ?

And its not just me, thousands of websites have been scrapped by this scrapper site and Google is happily sending them millions of hits.

Maybe it is easier for Google to list the one site holding all the copied content and filter out the thousands of sites where the content originally resided? Grrr.


Google loves these sites. Look at where Wikipedia ranks for any search term.

emikey - I think google's predilection for displaying scraped sites has contributed a LOT to scraping.

I also think google's previous push on links is responsible for the number of "exchange links with me" trash I've been getting for several years, almost exclusivley from gmail addresses!
