    Google has introduced The Scraper Report. It allows you to easily report copied content that is outranking the original. Check it out: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Pw1KVO … Y/viewform

        The only trouble is it says
        'If you see pages with scraped content ranking above or instead of the original, please tell us more about it'.

        So it doesn't seem to be used for just copied hubs purely because you have to add the url of google where they bad site is above yours. So at least you get rid of some of them, but will have to zap them the old way when you just get copies, but hey its better than nothing!

          That's correct, Nell.  This report is only if you find plagiarized content ranking higher on search results pages than your original content.  This report does nothing to remove that content; you still have to file a normal DMCA Notice to get content actually removed. 

          The scraper report helps the Google Webspam team improve its algorithm.

          Yes, that's true. At least it will do something about the fakes that outrank originals, which people here have reported has been a problem. Google tries to rank the original/older higher. But sometimes they don't.

    I have filed several DMCA notices lately and noticed that Google now has a nice dashboard where you can see the status of them all in one place.
