Thought of giving an update about 4 months after my original post. My site came back to its original position within about a month after I made the post. But still scraper sites are showing up on top for exact phrase searches. Just before making this post, I made a search to verify this and found my site at 17th position in an exact phrase search. Anyway thanks Google for bringing me back. But the worry about scraper sites is worsening with each new SERP update of Google, as understood from other posts here in WebmasterWorld and outside.
