    I have noticed that an unrelated domain name is now pointing to my site. The DNS is pointing the domain to my IP.

    I'm not sure if it is a mistake, or if someone has done it on purpose.

    It would seem to me this could make Google look at it as duplicate content, or a doorway site and potentially penalize my site! Is this possible?

    Are there other ways someone could try to get my site penalized on purpose such as posting it on a notorious link farm?

    One domain will not make a difference.

    They are probably trying to get their domain indexed with your content.

    You can block it with an htaccess redirect.

    But what should I redirect it to? Anything? A 404 Error? My competitor? :) (the domain has nothing to do with my or my competitors business)
