Another day, another drop. My page is now only 8.6% of my total impressions (8AM PDT), due to the scraper continuing to hold the top spot. Normally, for years, my page has been over 40% of all my impressions.
I just tried again, and they are still in the #1 spot, searching from California using Firefox and Safari.
However, another forum member reports seeing my page at the top again, with the scraper not to be seen. Can this be a regional thing, although there is nothing "Local" about the page? Even if the fix is rippling through the data centers, I should start to see some change in my page impression rate, but the impressions of my page continue to go DOWN.
Google continues to display the newly canonized scraper page, and ignores my de-canonized original page, which has had the top spot for 7 years. AdSense and I continue to lose money, since the scraper has removed the ads.
I have added a GIF of the Cease and Desist email I sent to the host, to my scraped content discussion web page. Full open kimono. Any other approach will not be effective, IMHO. I have nothing to hide, and much to say.
