I noticed this site that lists the top 100 sites on the web that is a major content scraper. <This site> is using the content on other sites and probably giving most of us duplicate content penalties in google. I hope google knows about this site.

This site does not try to summarize but they take the exact copy and all the links and display it on their site. It is also coming up in google serps so I am sure it is not helping our rankings.

If you click on the sites listed it goes to an article page where they have a source link and it brings you to a html page where they have the entire article word for word.

Yep ! Many are doing this...
It is not a problem you are on top in Google.

Nonetheless, I have an issue currently !

When I do a search for "my_brandable_name very_specific_name", Google returns only 19 results and my blog is in 4th position (after Technorati, Twitter and Blogcatalog).

What should I do ?
