    Hi, I want to copy a WordPress website, but I am not the owner of that site and I do not have any admin access, is there any way to copy the whole website exactly as the original one?

    To get the same design - u have to get the same theme. Once u get the same thing - u can easily make the design look exactly like the main site. There are many ways to know the name of the original WP theme that is being used by a site. Just Google it.

    Theme is not the probelm, I know what theme that site is using, it is not difficult to get that theme. How to get content exactly as they are in the original site? Do you have any idea? Note: that site has over 100 posts, it is a lot of work to copy them manually.

    Check if they have RSS enabled for the whole content. You can easily copy the content if RSS is enabled.

    Also there are content scrapers just search around. "website ripper copier"

    content scrappers will only get u the text or the html codes, html codes will help..if u put the same html code (not the html code of the entire page, the html code of the content/text part) then u will get the text part exactly like the original one. But still: There are lots of other work to do. If there is an image in the original one - u will have to put it manually. If there are 'relevant posts' in the original one which are appearing under the post in a certain order - u will have to do that manually too. Basically: Using a content scrapper will make the job much easier, but still u will have to do some manual work.

    If you do end up just ripping the site, which is actually pretty easy, be sure to change the ad codes/scripts to yours.

    I've had a guy do that to me once and he failed to change the adsense javascript and I was getting hits on my adsense from his site.

    I wonder did your websites got content ripped or whole sites copied ?

    I am also receiving hits from a lot of domains on my adsence and its a nice addition to the income but..

    The thing is the attackers are using a new method which i haven't seen so far. They are using probably a cname redirects which makes an exact mirror of our websites with their domain in the url. If i change anything on our websites it changes automatically on theirs.

    And the strange part is that they have found a way to edit content ( footer ,contact email , tracking etc ) beside the fact that their domain isint hosted anywhere only redirected which is very strange.

    With this method they are stealing the content + the website rankings as well since google sees the content on their domain in the url in the same time as we post the content + if they manage to speed up indexing of their url`s they can get ahead in google !

    We have contacted Cpanel and other security agencies for a fix to this method but all have said we cant do anything about it since its all done remotely and its not server side. I am working on blocking domain by domain on the main servers so they cant access the content but once you block one domain another one pops up and the old one is redirecting to the new one, which i think its brilliant for SEO.

    Just wanted to share this here because copying websites just reached a whole new level.

    I am trying to figure out the method ofcourse to use it afterwards :)

    If anyone has any inputs on this or have any previous experience shot me a pm.


    Cheers.

    Have you tried https://www.httrack.com/? (No affiliation)
    I have been using it for a while and it's working great.
    But like BTB said, ensure you change the adsense code and affiliate links that may be present on the webpage.
