How long does it take Google to take down a blog?

    I often use Google's copyright infringement form to request they take down a `blogspot' blog that has copied one of my articles. It usually takes about a week for Google to take down the blog, but in one recent case it's been almost 3 weeks and the thing is still there. When do you think I should send another request?

      It is possible the blogger contested it and convinced them.  I have seen it take a few attempts when the blogger fights back.

      Sometimes it takes them a while.  Blogspot/Blogger are still managed by the team who created the sites before Google bought them out.  They have their own way of doing things.

      Sometimes I've even received emails after a DMCA asking for more information.

      Eventually, though, I've always had plagiarized content removed.  So, all is good eventually.

      If you think too much time has passed, file another DMCA.

    Thanks for the info. I've submitted another DMCA.
