Bought a domain in late February, wrote 5 articles, posted them, forgot about it. It was an expired domain with nice backlinks so when I checked it in Ahrefs in early November, I found that it was in the top 30 for some nice keywords. I also saw that it wasn't ranking in first for the brand name of the site. Curious, I typed it into Google and there's the current domain from the company in the 1st spot. I'm not a lawyer, but I decided to try and look through the US trademark database to see if anything came up. There is a trademarked name but the word mark is "[company name]" and my site is "[companyname]layouts.com" Probably still trademarked, right? I looked into the listed lawyer on the trademark record and he's definitely a heavy hitter in the intellectual property area. Awards, featured in big sites, represented some massive software companies, etc.. The company looks to be about ~100 employees big, low 7 figures in revenue, etc. Basically they could f*ck my shit up if they wanted to. What do I do? I've sunk $470 in the last 45 days for SEO and I'm on the 2nd page now for some great keywords. Pretty shitty to think that this might be where it ends. Should I just ride it out? Or switch domains? I got no idea. Maybe someone can offer up a past story or 2 about an experience like this.
