    this guy over here:
    Code:
    http://vn-ad.com/
    is copying my seo blog
    Code:
    http://thenewdegree.com
    I check my web analytics, I have many requests from "httracker"
    I think this is what the script/software uses for scraping.

    Though he links back to my post at the end, but still this is wrong. This is not my money site or anything, but am very passionate about this blog and don't want someone to ruin ti for me.

    httracker is a site ripper. If it bothers you, get the ip on his server, do a whois and shoot an email to the abuse@---- for his hosting provider and send him a C&D email.

    Actually its not Softlayer that is hosting this. It is someone who is using softlayer and rebranding their own hosting service. If you looked closely at the ip assignment, softlayer owns the IPs that were then assigned to this customers:

    You are more likely to get a response from this guy than you will softlayer.

    Hope this helps,

    Oh yeah.. if that doesn't work.. just search around for some of the google engineers websites.. they are not hard to find. Then send messages threatening them.. something like:

    "I want my site to be #1 for seo tips. If you don't put my site to #1 I am going to come and fvck your wife right in front of you. Then fvck you too. I am not playing around. You better do it. I will give you 2 days."

    Of course sign it the name of the site owner, and that domain you want gone.

    Of course this will have an opposite effect. I never tried this, but it seems like a good idea. :p Just make sure you use proper anonymous measures when doing this. :)

    You should be HONORED someone is copying your stuff.

    Plus dude is linking back to you? What is your problem?

    Send him a thank you email and ask him if you can help him in any other way.
