    Angry How To Stop Blackhat Link and Content Scrapping

    Hey guys! I know it's been a while since I posted on here, but I was hoping for some help - or at the very least, naming and shaming.

    Last couple of months I've seen a whole load of back links to my sites from spammy sites.

    I've disavowed, but upon closer inspection, not only where they linking to me, but they have been scrapping my entire sites, images and all - sometimes even my affiliate link! Just posting all my content and images on ****** hack sites, and ruining my reputation with google and casinos.

    So my questions are:

    1. Can i do anything about it other than disavow the links?
    2. How will this affect me? I have seen a drop on one of the sites, is google going to think I am writing duplicate content or trying to built up my SEO via crappy link builing?
    3. Does anyone know the perpetrators and how to make them stop?

    An example is Vinnastortcasino.com/starburst-touch-mobile-slot-review.html - which is our exact review word for word: https://www.luckymobileslots.com/gam...arburst-touch/ - and they've linked to us, but why would I want that link?

    Other culprits include Casino4uk.com, MobileCasinoAppsReview.com, & CasinoSportGames.com, but I have so many more it would take too long to write them all here. I have to believe this is person with a mass network being a a**hole?

    Any help with this would be hugely appreciate it. It's scum like these that give gambling affiliates a bad name.

    The only thing I could suggest that could possibly help is disabling your rss feeds.

    Hi Marit,

    You can submit a DMCA through Google Webmaster tools to get the content removed from the Google Index. https://www.google.com/webmasters/to...rd?hl=en&pid=0 It's a bit long winded but effective.

    Good Luck & hope to see you at LAC.

    Hello,

    One of my sites has been penalized by Google's "Thin Content". And I have only disavowed the links I have investigated through Google Webmaster Tools.

    You may be the one who will be punished. That is why I shared this information with you.

    It helped me to survive!

    Cheers
