---- Stolen Duplicate Content Discovered. How Do I Get My Rankings Back?

The most likely cause to weaken a site is tons of duplicate content caused by:
1: WWW/Non-WWW split site issues. 2: Site also indexed on the IP address. 3: Pages subjet to query string issues. 4: Pages subject to the / issue. 5: Pages subject to the automatic index vs specificly named index issue ( / vs index.html). 6: Pages indexed on port 443 (https).
I need to go check my site to verify that I don't have any of this stuff. You would think that the supposed "geniuses" at Google would be able to determine 1, 4, 5, and 6 are really the same page in 99.999% or more of the cases fairly easily and treat them as the the same.
