We've experienced a 30 percent drop in traffic and subsequent loss of income. The problem is we share a data base of products with another site. They use the data as a catalog.  We use it as a store. All the results which used to go to the store, now go to the catalog.  We developed the data base, but the catalog site is getting all the hits while we are stuck in third page status, I'm assuming for duplicate content. Quite frustrating.  Any suggestions on how we can get our high rankings back?
