    Default Attention Affiliate Managers

    Hi All,

    Daniel at Affactive notified us of a site that has copied ours.

    Our site:
    www.casinocashjourney.com

    Their site:
    xxxwww.buycash.info

    I want to make sure Affiliate Managers know that it's not our site and to be aware of the site.

    Thanks for the article thebookiesoffers

    Thank you Renee for following the threads and always getting back to us so quickly.

    Can one of the moderators move this thread to General Chatter so it can get more exposure to Affiliate Managers. I am contacting Affiliate Managers to make them aware of this site.

    The site is hosted on Hostgator. They will take the site down right quick if you contact them with a DCMA form. Go here: http://www.hostgator.com/copyright.shtml for info on reporting the violation.

    Thanks for the heads up! We're listed in the same spots but it appears he is using your tracking account - if he registers I'll decline and inform you!

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Yep same here, using your tracking links. I will keep an eye out though, noone registed by that name currently.

    Hi All,

    Chips we contacted Host Gator and also SoftLayer (formerly ThePlanet) about this site

    It looks like this webmaster is just beginning to change the links over. The only links of their own they have are on the main page - the 4 banners they added at the very top of the page

    I know I should know this but, do Affiliate Managers have their own forum somewhere? It would save me a lot of time instead of emailing everyone!

    Hopefully they will pull the plug on them soon. I see the extra banners, did not take much time to junk up your good looking site.

    Why not bcc all your programs and do a mass mail? "Sorry for the impersonal nature but..."

    Don't forget to file a DCMA report with Google if the site stays up very much longer, I have sent countless forms to them and they are rather good at de-indexing the thieves.

    Hi Chips - thanks and I'm getting to the Affiliate Manager's because you don't know what this webmaster could be up to. From the feedback we've received, some of the AM's are already aware of this webmaster.

    Here's an article that bigb posted with info we both gathered https://www.gpwa.org/forum/been-copi...ck-166113.html. It should probably be updated as some of the information could be outdated. I haven't seen a posting from bigb in a long time.

    Hi All,

    The hosting company took down the site. We'll be keeping an eye on this site.

    We asked our SEO Guru a couple of questions. They said:

    Yes, it can hurt your ranking, mainly if the offending site is stronger than your site (links, etc.) where they would outrank you. Or for some reason Google thinks your site is the duplicate. It's not a penalty, merely something that happens when they find multiple copies / dupes and try to remove all but the original. They are not great at figuring out which one is the original.
    Then after the site was taken down, they said:

    The only real problem right now is that since that site is not responding, it's going to take a while, like maybe up to 6 months before Google finally removes the site from their index. If those listings are causing a problem with your site or it's rankings, it might not hurt to go ahead and submit the DMCA request to hasten the removal of the pages from the index.

    If they aren't causing you any real problems, I suppose that wouldn't be necessary.
