But with my exp., I can tell you that scraped content outranking the original content owner is indication of loss of authority of that site.
So - what your telling me - is Panda hit me because my site lost authority?
It has nothing to do with people copying my content a bazillion times. That's just a symptom of losing authority?
If that is the case - why hasn't my site recovered after 18 months of improvements? I never lost pagerank... my site is better than ever.
It now seems that the scraped content has now had enough time to become entrenched while I was making improvements. This means that
there is no recovery from Panda - unless I re-do my entire site or start over - because you'll never get a leg up on the scrapers?
