One of my clients runs a cyber security blog which is one of their main traffic sources.

Recently, an industry news site has beem scraping their content and publishing it with their site as canonical. They do include a “this is a copied post” disclaimer with a link to the original.

Now, they are ranking for all our content. They have a similar DA.

Our site was crawled first, both pages are cached, it’s clear from the post that our site was the original poster, yet Google has decided to rank their page instead. Is there anything we can do about this?

We emailed them asking if they’d alteration the canonical but they are not interested as they are running ads on the page ans prefer to keep hijacking the traffic.
