    i contacted his hosting and told them the situation im sure they will close his account just for the spamming but also for using my site and links. I dont care what other people do on their sites spam or nit just not completely copy and pasting every word and every photo from my site and letting me find out about it I was spammed with my own site its kind of funny :p

    I'm confused. I thought your site was hacked and they were spamming from it. Did you mean they copied your site and were pretending to be your site then leading them to some ads or something? Did they steal your domain?

    I'm just curious about the attack. Been hearing a lot of this lately and want to protect myself against similar attacks.

    They can never out rank the original although it may be pestering to have someone try to go against you.
