    So, yesterday I was talking with my SEO guy and he found that a website had copied my content (hqviews.com) then I contacted the website and said that I would submit a Cease and Desist if they didn't take the copied content down. They must have recognized my site because I mailed them from my sites email and then the owner of the website Messages me on BHW saying he owns hqviews.com and doesn't know what was copied? My site is RushViews.com which he obviously knows through BHW and then messaged me here. Stupidity... Buy your own content or at least take the website name out of the content that you copied, as you can clearly see my site (RushViews.com) mentioned in the site.

    I'd take you're site name out of the post, or obscure it if you can. Google has a history of penalising sites posted here.

    Content being harvested all the time, actually I think it's nice he contacted you to solve this.
    And I would delete your url.

    I supply the service here on BHW, if they wanted to slap the site, they would and it's already been slapped, I'm not too concerned.

    At least Blueplanet contacted you, owned up & changed the content.

    They didn't have to do any of the above. Take it as a compliment that your content is strong.

    This is so weird, someone copying the content from your site and telling you what part did he copied, even though he knows that part. And threatens of Google penalizing sites posted here!

    Yes, it pays to be paranoid.

    I am sure there are google monkeys on BHW kissing matt cunts butt if for no other reason but because they can.
