1) I have filled several DMCA requests. Some granted, some not. But I have filled out at least 20 examples over the past few weeks. The main thing I am going is using the Chrome extension to file spam reports against the scrappers.
2) Yes I am using several site maps and Google is indexing my pages. See screenshot here: [cl.ly...]
3) I believe our site is verified. How do I check?
4) No messages of any penalties. Appears healthy in webmaster tools.
5) Site traffic was consistent at about 90,000 visits a day. When we have this problem with google, traffic falls to about 40,000 per day. This entire dip is close to the change in search traffic during these periods. A couple of times a year this happens, but always within a week the issue is resolved. This time it has been 6 week.s
