    My WordPress blog is completely cloned. That clone site is updating in real time with my blog. I am surprised that someone can actually do that.

    What should I do to stop harmful impact in my search engine ranking? Is there any way to tell Google not to index that site?

    I've reported some domains in CloudFlare that have cloned my site, but after they close 1 domain, they open the other ..

    My site has lost a lot of rank and I'm so desperate for my income to have dropped by 70%, as it is possible to happen that makes the clone in real time. !

    don;t report to google if you don't own the content or else that 30% you still make is also gone.

    I now reported some domains that have cloned my site, and I hope Google will do something.

    I do not know their IP because they use CloudFlare.

    As it's on autopliot you should include in every article a prominent line like

    your-domain.com is the real deal bla bla bla

    You could hide that line with your css / js, by generating a unique css class you add on each page load.

    A large ecommerce site did this a few years ago as competitiors start ripping their product descriptions and not cleaning the content properly.
    To this date you still find shops that have their line in the product descriptions.

    Well if they are updating when you do it's likely they are using an rss feed plugin. You can check quite easily. They may of course be copying and pasting, unlikely though. You can stop that if they're doing it

    I heard something "content and URL canicalization" regarding this issue.
    Search on Google, this may help you.

    better if you ask cloudflare.. tell them about your situation, and ask them to reveal their IP..
    next step if you got good news from CF, just block their IP range..

    i use that methods to clone others people website, not about rss or scrap your content..
    they use curl if i'm not wrong.. like proxy ( glype expl ) but much better..
