    Do you mean someone copied your site in an iFrame? otherwise can't understand this post as someone cannot just steal your site via 301 redirect.

    The only way to redirect your domain name to his is to get into your hosting account. He can't do it from his account. Assaid above he probably simply did better SEO than you.

    the probleme is my domain was replaced instantly by a unknow domain, so all the positions was taken too.
    He use a unknow method i never see that

    he didn't do any seo, he use the 8 year old of a domain to take position of my website, so my domain is not displayed by google now on my keywords, just him.

    He did this with a partner there was few days, my friend website's was dropped and he taken his position, now he is using this on my domain

    so why google display now his website and not my website !

    Google doesn't swap one site for another like this, unless your site was either deranked or deindexed and in return he received the benefit. Are you saying he is using duplicate content from your site or what exactly? Also if you are using a low-grade EMD your site may have just been nailed by the new EMD update that went through and caused and instant change in rankings for some people. That would explain how it happened 'so fast', etc.

    Probably if you tell us his domain, we can join hands together to out-rank him at the same time steal your niche (that is, if it is profitable.)

    I really can't get over why the op think someone stole his ranking in google serp, so I ask him what his domain, the keyword he ranked and his competitor site. I;m not sure but i think its kind of an exploit or a hack on the op's site. the google description of the competitor is exactly the same as op. and the site of the competitor which is now currently number one was again redirected to another site.

    Anyways, OP's niche is about hacking and/or hacking someones account so I'm not really surprise this thing happen on his site. Since you are in this niche, you probably know better what is going on.

    Note: the site is in french so I could have understand it wrong :p

    Simply serving a 301 to Google, Bing and Yahoo only? Possibly cloaked - he should check/clean htaccess then secure his site.

    Thanks Testdrive :)
    Maybe a new exploit with google serp, and maybe a 302 redirection,
    yes he used cloaking on his website from mine.

    what sort of rules can i add to my .htaccess for this kind of attack ?

    Hi all

    My site is also a victim of 302 redirect hijack. Some sites are scraping my webpage and then redirecting to my site with 302 redirect. I have attached a screenshot. I reported it on webmaster forums but it didnt work. I also used canonical relation tag but that didnt work either. Please tell me a solution if anyone knows.

    You can see the traffic loss and google is not indexing my affected urls

    The only way is to re-register / renew the old domain and prove ownership by showing you can control the old domain (set-up redirects, verify in GWT, etc.)
