    Default Site Scraped, Anyone Know The Owner?

    I recently noticed a site I own has been scraped. There are no active aff links, but on the off chance thought I would see here if anyone knew who it might be?

    Original site: https://www.bettingwebsites.org.uk/
    Copy: httpxxx://betsandbookies.com/

    It was cloned over a year ago as I've modified the theme since, but everything apart form the tips and news section was a clone. They have taken the tips section from another site.

    Hate when this happens, lazy scammy people drive me nuts. Keep us updated on the path you take towards resolving this, and the end result.

    report them to their host + ask them to take the site down.

    This is just awful. Someone to steal, clone and take all your efforts and labour during the years just like that.

    In our industry a lot of cheaters have came up most recenty , including aff. programs.

    If you play the game wrong sooner or later, yu will drop off the boat.

    Have submitted a DMCA request to google and also contacted some other sites that have had content scraped so they can submit requests, hopefully multiple requests for the same site might mean they act quicker.

    I have also contacted the host, but not holding out too much hope there.

    I read this happening to other sites years ago and people said to report to affiliate programs they use and they will have accounts closed.
