Aha! But what does "essentially the same content" mean?
The same content can be published on several different sites, exactly the same word for word and several paragraphs deep. But each site may have different header, footer and side meanus full of all sorts of stuff.
I used a tool and analyzed my google analytics and it confirmed the panda at various stages from Nov.
I always emphasized on good content but many scarpers have copied hundreds of my pages as-it-is.
