Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Anyone else experiencing this? Could it be a Algo tweak and my site (absolutely all white hat) will eventually get back in serps?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Have two further questions...
1. How long for Google to investigate, take action and get my site back in the serps?
2. Can I name the offending site thief here?

Google usually will not make a quick manual change, because they prefer to use spam reports to improve their alogrithmic detection - in their terms, "that approach scales better". But in some cases, I have seen the problem addressed within 24 hours of filing a normal spam report, not using any special communication channels or anything like that.
Mr.Stitch...copied right off the web I believe.
When you lose your all your google traffic in one day...turn over every rock to find the reason.
Check your serps often and check the bottom url. If it's not yours, someone got to you and is making money from your traffic with pop ups selling anything and everything.
I caught this the first day, so the loss of income will be minimized.
Still losing a bunch though.
Most people assume something is wrong with their site when they lose their pages in the serps. Check everything.
Some folks go weeks or months without checking anything, meanwhile some thief is making money from their traffic.
My advice...STAY ON TOP OF EVERYTHING...EVERYDAY!

If your site was copied, I definitely urge you to be proactive. Check out the threads in the Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page about "Defending your rankings."
All I can say is learn how to protect your site. It could happen to you if you rank high in Google.
