Someone copied my content

by 28 comments
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

      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.

    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...

    Actually I saw both your sites right now and i don't think you've too much to worry about this imposter! Anyone (which means big G) can tell in under 10 secs that yours is the authentic one...

    The best way will be for sure to contact him and ask to remove that content, if it will not you can try with google, they will help you. But believe me that if that guys reading emails it will remove that content.

    Lol, some of you guys are too nice.

    Forget any dialog with the scraper, odds are he'll laugh at you If he even opens your email.

    Dear Mr. Car Thief,

    Will you please return my car?

    My cats medicine is in the center console, Mr. Mittens needs his medicine before all his fur falls out.

    Sincerly, Mr. Nice Guy

    Tell him. You should delete the content or i will report to your hosting provider and DMCA shit too.
  • Profile picture of the author solemanali
    Like others said I think you should file a DMCA notice to the owner of the site. And also you can report this matter to Google spam fighting unit.
  • Profile picture of the author webwizdevelop
    I would advice you to contact site owner and ask and explain him your situation. I bet he will understand you. But thing is when he dont want to take it off you should be able to prove that its your content

    You can contact Google to get it de-indexed, or contact the web host and see if they will pull the site or tell the owner to take it down.

    Thanks everyone!

    If you have any advice other than:
    • Asking me to contact the webmaster (Which I am not going to)
    • Send a DMCA (Which I know how to do, as I wrote in the beginning)
    • Reporting to Adsense - Added by yukon
    • Reporting to Google (DMCA) - Added by palms

    Please feel free to add.

    Thanks,
    Ankit
