Default Someone copied my content

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.

Two ways you have now:

contacting personally the site owner
DMCA

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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).

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...

Yes, there's a couple of ways to go about it. I usually do both...the "Complaint" form and a DMCA. The important thing is to not let these thieves get away with it, otherwise they will rip even more of your pages once they see you're an easy mark, and posing a threat to their Adsense account really gets their attention. I've done this numerous times and most were successful.

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

That's because you don't know what you're talking about.

It makes NO difference if the thief is located overseas...their Adsense is in the US.

These thieves steal content so they can put Adsense on it. When you send Google a properly formatted DMCA notice and an Adsense complaint, Google WILL take action. I've filed close to a hundred of these things and 99% of them were successful.

Once the thief sees that they are removed from the serps AND may lose their Adsense account, there's no reason for them to continue ripping content. You just removed their financial incentive.

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.

That's pretty much what I was getting at, reporting to Adsense.

Without an income, the scraper site isn't interested in stealing content.

Site is hosted in US, so the Host (hostgator in this case) is bound to act.

It takes a lot of time creating well researched high quality content and while these impostors just copy/paste it without giving any credit. I don't see why someone you should not fight against such people.

One more note...

I never waste time trying to contact the offending webmaster...they already know they stole your content.

Also, if they are NOT putting Adsense on my stolen content, I use a standard DMCA to Google. I've had Google remove an offender within 48 hours in the past, however it now takes much longer for Google to act since more and more people have figured out that it works a high percentage of the time and Google is receiving tonns of DMCAs every day.

If they ARE putting Adsense on my stolen content, I try the complaint form that Yukon mentioned first and see what happens. The complaint form seems to work much faster than a full-on DMCA. But, if it doesn't work...DMCA to Google.

The only time I can think of that I wasn't successful was when the thief only ripped-off a small percentage of my content. (two pictures) So, I presume Google has some threshold they use to decide when to act.

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.

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.

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
