Hello, I am gutted that someone copied content from my site (word-to-word) along with pictures and backdate published it. Can't share the URL, sorry. I came to know only today when I was checking this particular site's backlink history. To make matters worse, G had already released a core update earlier this month and I have seen some rank drops. But, that's true for most people IMO. So my question is does G know already? Does it have a mechanism to cross check this skullduggery? I mean I published the new article on 12th of this month and this crook backdated it to a day. So far it seems G has indexed it and it must be driving some traffic. P.S: It's not a new site. Fun fact: there's another site that copied an article from my site, ranked at the top spot for a while, now seen some drops but is still ranking higher than me on the 1st page. It's possible they got hit by the update, who knows... Someone tell me how to deal with these crooks.
