    A old friend of mine that I don't really talk to much any more copied my site word for word. The site layout is a little different but mostly the same. What should I do if anything at all? I don't want to confront him really because that will probably be the end of that friendship, but what can I do to make sure he does not steel more of my hard work?

    I would brake his nose, he's not your friend when he does a scum-bag thing like that, why did he copy your site anyway?

    Stop being a Pussy. The Guy isn't your friend otherwise he would have asked.
    He WILL do it again. He doesn't care what YOU think.
    You don't need friends like that.

    Your friend has dupe content. Beat him on the traffic that the site receives.

    Having a site is the easy part, getting conversions is all that matters.

    Be better than him. If he is copying you, consider it a complement and move on.

    You guys worry about way too much shit.....serious.

    How does he know about your sites anyways?

    If I were you I wouldn't even be worried about your relationship with him.

    Yeah, the site is brand new. My site is aged almost 4 years and has a good reputation.
    The reason he thinks he can copy all my content is because he partially gave me the idea to create a webcam studio. But I took the idea and ran with it. Now Im 24 own my own house, 3 cars, a dune buggy and a toy hauler and he is just jealous of my success. He just does nothing all day but smokes weed and plays games. I have worked my butt of for 4 years to make my company what it is today. But he does not realize that.

    I know that he will never have the resources to make any real money, but it just makes me mad that he steels my content that I have worked years to perfect.
    Here is his site if you want to check it out. http://zerolimitproduction.com/
    This is my site http://www.i-camz.com/

    Tell me what you think?

    That's called a "butter face", and that's why God created paper bags and light switches.

    Fuck his wife, make a video, start a new porn site and put her on the home page.

    Stop being a pussy. He's not your friend, and he only did it because he doesn't respect or fear you. A baseball bat swung into the middle of the face will cure him of that forever.

    So you acted on his idea and made it into a viable platform of income?

    Sounds like he is sad and wants a piece of the pie. Hire him as a content manager or whatever the fuck you porn guys call yourselves, and have him run your site while you make a few investments in different sites that diversify your portfolio.

    Bang his wife doggy style. That way you dont have to look at her face.
    As you are the hard worker just grind the dude down.
    If you build more sites done tell him.
    If you know someone with scrape box dump a million or so links with same anchor text toward his site

    Dude, in that "agent/model/webcam" industry all sites are with more or less same text, similar photos and basically all of them are copied from somewhere and someone and he also copied content from someone, etc. Most of them are affiliates, and their aff managers give already made text, banners and photos for their site.
    It's not big deal,you work on your clients, he will work on his clients and other 10000 similar sites on their clients. I have similar themed site/landing page for same jobs with girls and agents, www.latamcam.com , am I your copier too ?

    Your site is very unappealing. It is dark and the text is too small. My eyes do not know what to read first. You should work on it. Make it a more appealing colour, more erotic.

    Colors and design are just how I wanted, for some reason. For font you're right, should be bigger. That is a stalling "project" anyway, not working on it, waiting some moment, if any moment comes. I just wanted to show the OP that is nothing original in this industry, that his site is not so unique or whatever the problem might be.
