    Default Attention Affiliate Managers

    Hi All,

    We have been made aware of a site that has used a lot of our site.

    Our site: http://www.casinocashjourney.com

    Their site: xxxhttp://slotsid.com/ (as of this posting, our logo and name is in their header)

    While I do not see any affiliate tracking links, currently all of the links on their site go to Europa Casino.

    I wanted to make you aware that the site xxxhttp://slotsid.com/ does NOT belong to us.

    I've also emailed Affiliate Managers notifying them of the issue.

    Thanks,

    Hi All,

    Thank you to Sivan at EuroPartners (Europa Casino) for assisting us. Sivan closed their affiliate account and also sent the webmaster an email notifying them that it's against their terms and conditions.

    Good response from affiliate managers.
    CCJ have nice site, good simply layout, good color scheme.
    I am not surprised that they copy such good site.
    That's the compliment to you, CCJ. Keep good job!

    Fantastic news for a fistful of witch hunters.

    Hi All,

    After contacting the webmaster and hosting company, the webmaster changed their site.

    Thanks Universal for letting me know and please thank the webmaster that told you. That was a good find and early too.

    I still use the same procedures that Brian at bigbcasinos and I put together nearly 9 years ago. Most of it still applies today.

    It's a sticky post at https://www.gpwa.org/forum/been-copi...ck-166113.html

    Thanks,

    If they have any copied content from your site you should get them banned immediately

    Hi grem, Chasing these webmasters to get content removed is a waste of precious time, ours and the Affiliate Managers. Fortunately, this was an easier one.

    We use Copyscape. We receive reports on a weekly basis and every week, I'm afraid to look. There's always someone that's used parts of my site. If I feel the site will not hurt mine, I let it go. I pick and choose my battles.

    Here is an example of Copyscape picking something up:

    The comparison below was created by Copyscape, which searched for copies of this page:

    http://www.casinocashjourney.com/casino_bonus_tips.htm

    The page below now has no words matching the text.

    xxxhttp://dedhamglassart.com/?p=no-deposit-casino (If you click this link, the footer says "VerifiedCasinos.com" - this is the one that Anti-Hacker has been talking about)

    The funny thing about this is that Copyscape is picking this site up however there are no copied words. I'm not sure how this is being done. Copyscape has picked-up this site a few times now.

    I tried uploading a screenshot however the attachment popup opened to a blank page.

    Thanks,

    If copyscape catches copied content that you can not see, I am guessing it could be from cloaked pages possibly.

    It might also be content they used to have up but no longer do, or they could also rotate content from a database. Obviously this would not be the case if the site is completely static.

    In the verified casinos case, it could be some of the cloaked content they are using is stolen from you from the pages you are seeing copyscape reports on.

    Hi Rick, I think your analysis is correct. It's worrying that they're able to do this and to also be able to keep doing it.
