    Someone copied and pasted all of my site's content exactly.
    Question: Will this hurt my rankings eventually/get me penalized in any way?

    Just slap in an email to abuse@whatever-host.youropressor.fuck saying they have copied your site. (whois...)
    Give them your site address, quoting registered dates etc, telling them that your competition has ripped your site.

    Should sort it...

    I'm sure you'll be alright, im assuming you content was indexed first so he'll probably end up penalized

    Even though OP's site are indexed first, there is still a possibility will get penalty and beaten by a competitor if they do a better SEO.

    If whoever copied the content has much higher authority than you, you might get slapped instead. You got a copyright case right there, so you might wanna pursue that under the <GASP> DMCA.....

    This happened to me before. I didn't care though, I was ranking and that person wasn't. A few months later I checked to see how their site was doing and all I found was a suspended account for the domain they had :)

    I think your site can't be penalized because Google can view who publish first original post. For this reason copy of original site is penalized.

    I let a friend host his 'new website' on my hosting account once and he had copied it and I got notified with this kind of email from hostgator. They said it was a cease and desist for a trademarked/copyrighted site. The site obviously wasn't trademark/copyrighted in any way, but i took the site down immediately and never let the guy put a site on my hosting acct again. The owner I assume would get a similar email to the one I got. The problem is theirs a good chance they'll just ignore it and you could end up being penalized (which also happened to another site i owned when someone copied it word for word)

    Site authority should play an important part on verifying what sites ranks above ! There are copies of content all over the internet with article syndication but yet sites manage to rank upon one another with same content ! Google should have something to find out about the original source of the content depending on the indexed date or something ! Otherwise, it people can fuck with other's site by sharing their competitors contents all over the internet !!

    Make a complaint to their host, their domain registrar, and whoever they are affiliating for.

    Try to email the webmaster of the other site. Sometimes, issues can be resolved in a diplomatic conversation. :)

    Even though he/she is copied your content. No need to worry about penalization since the content was already indexed. So, it will not affect your ranking for sure.

    Authority plays here. Don't be a kid.

    OP-> you can either ignore him or ask the host to take him down. You'll be copied a lot, build a strong site and ignore the bottom feeders here.
