Did you file your DMCA only with Google? Is Google their hosting company? Honestly, when I file a DMCA it is ALWAYS with the offending site's hosting company, not Google.
If you have a valid complaint, hosting companies will typically act, and do so quickly. If the offending site is a blogger site THEN Google will act. I've had them take down pages on blogger in about 4 hrs of submitting a DMCA.
I don't see Google removing sites not hosted with them from their search results as the result of a DMCA request like yours. Where's the motivation to do so? If they don't act and you decide to sue them, they'll bury you with their fleet of attorneys.
Hosting companies, on the other hand, are MUCH more vulnerable to lawsuits (and the threat of lawsuits) so they are much more likely to act on DMCAs than Google ever would be.
