    Default Bet 1 .co.za copied content

    I sent an email to this person and have still not received a response and the content is still up - so I have now made a post here. Casino Ferret - If you read this - please remove my content .

    Hi



    This is Heather from Topboss

    I did a search on copyscape and noticed that your content on this page http://www.1bet.co.za/african_palace_online_casino.htm

    has been copied word for word from the following page of my site :

    http://www.randcasinos.com/african_palace.htm



    Please may I ask you to remove it , otherwise we will both be penalized on google



    Please confirm when it has been done

    Now I am getting really mad because there has been no response to my emails , no response on the board and to top it all - Further pages from my site have been copied as well.

    I am giving you one more week to respond in the hopes that you are away on holiday and have not read my post. After this - I am going to do whatever I need to do to get this content removed.

    I would prefer not to get nasty though as its not in my nature

    Maybe you need the Greek remover? Seriously I can certainly understand the frustration. Only if more of us would involve ourselves a bit more these problems may eventually disappear.

    Good luck

    The remover would be myself if I had the time. Have you contacted the host?

    Heather,

    Don't forget to notify all the affiliate managers of any property they are advertising also. This has worked wonders in the past.

    If they don't contact you soon, let me know and I will attempt t talk to their host.

    Here are the email contacts I got from their whois.

    emailsource : eugene@snowball.co.za
    billingemail : finance@snowball.co.za
    registrantemail : shaunbairdsa@hotmail.com
    adminemail : admin@snowball.co.za
    tecemail : technical@snowball.co.za

    Thanks very much for this info Rick - It is very helpful - I will try sending emails to all their addresses first and if that doesn't work - will try their host and then the affiliate programs

    Hi Heather,

    I did a search on the waybackmachine.org and see that your content was added some time after the 26 September 2006 and before the 18'th January 2007.

    I'd guess you content has been on the site for at least 12 months.

    So basically any seo damage that has been done, has been done already.

    here is the waybackmachine URL:

    xxxhttp://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.1bet.co.za

    Maybe a good thing to use and point out their hosting provider and affiliate managers.



    Cheers



    Dave

    Thank you fellas for stepping up! I think content theft concerns us all. Helping out your fellow GPWA member is always a good thing.

    We have some really talented people here willing to go that extra yard for others. Perhaps this separates us from others?

    Agreed - Thanks to all of you for your assistance - this is definately what makes the GPWA stand out at the end of the day.

    Dave , I am now going to contact the Affiliate Managers because all the email addresses that Rick gave me bounced back

    Thanks for letting us know the emails all bounced.

    Since the emails bounced, we can now file an invalid contact information complaint with Internic.

    xxhttp://wdprs.internic.net/

    The administative and technical contact MUST be a reachable email account and Internic Policy dictates that Registrars MUST follow up on complaints forwarded to them by Internic.

    Ooops, I forgot, we can't report .co.za to that spot.

    Anyone know where the complaint can be lodged?

    Hi there, I picked this thread up by chance by following the "came from" URL in my web stats. My sincere apologies for the copied content, I will rectify this within the next day or two. I have this issue across a number of my sites where the web developer took shortcuts and thought they had all been ironed out.

    Please feel free to contact me on eaffiliates@gmail.com for further discussion, I will try and contact the webmaster directly to confirm the above.

    Rgds,
    Shaun
