I noticed that some of well written posts on my website doesn't get any hits and after short investigation found that another site just copied few of my articles.
I contacted them and asked to remove the copied article or add a do follow link to the exact same article on my site. They chose not to remove the article and added link to my site (I thought it was even better to get free link).
However, after 3 weeks expecting that Google will adjust rankings and they will drop from SERP, I still see them at No. 5 spot for the keyword phrase and my site is not in the SERPs at ALL.
Another article was copied from my site with the inner links pointing to my site's other content and that still doesn't prove Google that I am the original author of these articles.
Can someone explain why they outrank me when every aspect should be in my favor? My site is PR5 they're PR3, Alexa (top 1M vs. >3M), copied article has links pointing to my original content. My article has site wide link and 164 combined links from other sites, their copied article has only 3 links from other sites.
How to tell Google that I should rank instead of them?
