Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Every tool at my disposal (okay a couple might be left to try) has failed.
I want to emphasize that my ideas about correlation between widespread syndication and being wrongly Pandalyzed are my own conjecture, nothing proven and nothing officially communicated. It's just what seems to make the most sense for the cases that have me scratching my head....
...What I'm trying with one site is to ramp up every "we are the canonical source" signal I can muster, including authorship tagging, pubsubhubbub, delayed RSS, no more full RSS feeds, etc, etc. I'll let the forum know if it works.
There's evidence that Google "wants to" credit the original source in the SERPs, but many times a more authoritative source who is quoting in full or syndicating (even with full acknowledgement) will still rank higher.
>>my articles get picked up by other sites<<
I recently worked with a site that had a similar issue. We made a couple of changes that seemed to improve indexing and ranking immediately.
1. Inaugurated authorship mark-up
2. Used pubsubhubbub (PuSH) to send Google "fat pings" immediately at publication
3. Delayed the standard feed until the PuSH feed was received

What happened is that my RSS feed is being broadcast elsewhere.
