Since the algo change, all sorts of pitiful low quality sites rank way above me, for original text written years ago by my own hand. What bugs me is that the majority of these scraper sites are not at all popular or well rated, whereas my site was.
The majority of sites that have used parts of my text (without permission) have linked back to my original pages, yet it seems I'm no longer attributed as the author, and there's nothing I can do about it.
I have the canonical tags set on every page.
I sent a DMCA to Amazon just last week with a page that had used publisher text details copied and pasted from my homepage. To be fair to Amazon they not only removed the page and product itself, but totally shut-down the seller's entire account.
Problem is, if I want to start DMCA'ing everybody, I haven't the hours in the day to do it.
