    Unhappy Ka-ching-bingo.com stolen most our of content!

    Hi all,
    We could really use your help. We recently applied for a GPWA seal however whilst reviewing our site they found out that ka-ching-bingo.com has ripped off our content completley the lazy B$^^^^ds havent even changed the images or text etc. Just copied and pasted entire sections of our site into theirs. Now since google updated panda we took a massive drop in traffic overnight on the 14th October and we are trying to get this back but this isnt helping and we may have been penilized for duplicate content etc???

    I have tried to do some digging and i have found out that its registered to a company called IGNITE DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT LIMITED with an office in spain on the who is and registered in the isle of man. i have contacted each of the emails i could find on the list of sites on their server and tried to ring the telephone on the who is but no reply.

    ka-ching-bingo.com is hosted on ns697.ukclouddns.com


    ns697.ukclouddns.com hosts 12 other sites listed below


    topmobilebingo.com/
    top-casino-bonuses.net/
    bestmobileroulette.com/
    orderofservice.net/
    ka-ching-casino.com/
    kittykatcasino.com/
    thewizardofoddz.net/
    ka-ching-poker.com/
    kittykatbingo.com/


    the who is info for topmobilebingo.com brings back
    Registrant:
    Ignite Digital Entertainment


    How can i get them to remove the content or get the whole site de-indexed in google so that it no longer affects us?

    I could try a cease and desist letter but i dont think they will respond to this either!

    HELP Please

    many thanks

    I'm not following Universal4, why would i contact me server providers for madaboutbingo.co.uk to file a complaint. We have been around since 2006 and our site is the original website to host this content. if anything i should be filing a complaint with the server provider for ka-vhing-bingo.com shouldnt i?

    I am sorry but in your above post you state that Ka-ching is who stole your content and that Ka-ching is hosted on ns697.ukclouddns.com.

    When I look at the provider of ns697.ukclouddns.com I find that it is hosted by eukhost.

    The reason to file a DMCA with eukhost is so that the host can be notified one of their clients has republished YOUR content without permission.

    If it just happens that both sites are hosted by thew same host, that is just a coincidence.

    Well, it looks like whatever you did work, the sites have now a 404 Not Found error message and site ka-ching-casino.com doesn’t have any content.

    Let us know how you managed to solve the problem!

    Hi Maria,
    there is still some of there pages visiable on Google but the 4 main ones have been de-indexed.

    We raised a DMCA complaint with google and had to provide them with the original source URL and the offending sites URL along with a brief description of what had been copied. Because they copied entire sections was easier for google to realise. Also Universal4 kindly informed us that they had used the same server provider as us so i raised a DMCA with them aswell, so hopefully they can contact the webmaster or have the sites removed from the server.

    Glad this worked out and progress was made so quickly....

    I am sad that anyone ever has to go to these steps...the sad part is the thief will likely do it again....that is why its always good to get programs involved too so they have a "heads up" on what affiliates are doing this....

    For future reference you can report them to google for scraping content.

    Contact affiliate managers to ask them to remove the site or their accounts can get closed.

    Contact their host asking them to take down the site or do something.

    There website is still running.

    The footer links to casino-heaven.net and they have most likely stolen content from this other affiliate website

    I raised a DMCA complaint with Google and had the 4 main sections of their site removed.

    I would of contacted the affiliate managers, however they didnt even change the affiliate links just copied and pasted entire sections of our site links included.

    Contact their host asking them to take down the site or do something.
    I have raised a separate DMCA with the host server provider, which thanks to Univeral4's helps managed to find out it was hosted with the same company as us. so i contacted them directly.

    There website is still running.

    Hopefully not for much longer, however Eukhost havent heard back from them either. Am convinced that somebody has these sites up as a blackhat techinque, placing them on the same server etc as madaboutbingo.co.uk and coping our content to make it look like we where behind it!!!
