Someone copied my content

by ankitoberoi 28 replies
Hey,

I recently posted some content on my website, here: http://www.adpushup.com/ad-revenue-o...-optimization/

Now, this guy completely copied my content as well as the images which I made: http://makemoneyonlineaeasyway.com/h...dsense-income/

I don't want to send a DMCA yet, how do I get this page de-indexed from google?

TIA,
Ankit

    I think so, you cannot de-index other's property, we do not have right and permissions for this. What you can do is just send complant to DMCA regarding this matter. This will make your content secure and unique, if it indexes first in google indexing.

    Thanks

    Two ways you have now:

    contacting personally the site owner
    DMCA
    Signature

    Is your website Hacked? Try -> www.sitebeak.com
    Is Google Analytics installed Properly? Test -> www.GAtective.com
    Impersonal Google search? Check -> www.impersonal.me

      I personally don't like contacting such people.

      Neither would I want a link from such a site, it would do more harm than good.

      I have brought down sites/pages in the past, using DMCA. They take hosting from hostgator which is another good thing, as I've found their abuse team to be quick and helpful.

      I've never got anything de-indexed though, so thought I'd try something new this time.

    I would first contact the site owner and try to kindly ask him to edit or completely remove your article. This webmaster could also link to your website! So, I think DMCA will work if ONLY you didn't manage to cope with this problem!

    I would send the DMCA notice direct to the webmaster and wait a week. If no reply, send it to Google.

    Just got back from a #BrightonSEO. I was given room 404 in the hotel I stayed at. Couldn’t find it anywhere!

    Why are you wasting your time trying to find ways to get it deindexed?

    Send the DMCA notice to the host and be done with it.

    Google probably gets flooded with these kind of complaints. Could be weeks until they get to yours. If I am not mistaken, they are under no legal obligation to comply either.

    On the other hand, the webhosts can get into legal trouble for not complying. They are quick to take action.

      You give the guy a link? For what?

      DMCA notice? I would not waste my time.

      What if the guy is outside the US? Nobody gives a rat's
      hat about US law.

      I can't imagine google taking an interest in everything they
      get submitted either. Unless it's from a court or lawyer.

      You have a very small site that basically just rewords what
      google publishes. I have no idea why people go gaga over
      copied content...

    Forget the host DMCA, report his page to Adsense for stealing your content.

    Google doesn't rank duplicate content anyway does it?

      Yes, scraped content/pages can easily out rank the original content source/page.

      Not all content is the same though. If you scrape Amazon, you'll most likely get buried in the Supplemental SERPs (eventually).

    Contact the host of that site with a copyright complaint. Most good hosts will immediately act upon it...
