google serps show www.domain for www.domain.com

Searching for mydomainname returns redirects and links to www.mydomainname

I am totally lost here: already in the last update my sites heavily got pushed down in the serps by cloakers, spammers, adsense fake sites, redirecters,... but this time it even got worse: if I am searching for "mydomainname" which is a fantasy term I can only be found somewhere deep in the serps. And all that appears in the serps is: www.mydomainname and a link to [mydomainname...]

Anyone else seeing the same?

IMO google has serious proplems somewhere.

Someone linked to you in that way and Google simply picked the reference up.

this is not happening with one site. my sites usually have decent pr and hundrets of backlinks many with the mydomainname as anchor text.

maybe a reason for this is all those sites stealing my content - cloaking it and redirect. i have had many isp's taking those fraudulent sites down but there are simply too many (thousands) and I am tired of taking legal actions.

perhaps I should consider taking legal action against google as they clearly promote the idea of stealing copyrighted materials since they advertise on those fake pages.
