    Hello guys,
    Please give me some ideas. One idiot is somehow using my whole website on his. I don't know how, but when you click on his website my page will show, my logo my everything. Just same website. What is interesting, I found him with my google analytics, when someone clicks on his website, I get traffic but when you click on affiliate link, his affiliate link comes out. He is stealing my website and my money. What should I do?

    That is blackhat at its best. It sounds like he just copied your site and changed the affiliate links.

    I've had this happen before - if the webmaster is unresponsive then I'd report to their domain host as abuse. Let us know how you make out

    if someone enabled cloudflare on hosting, then how can you check hosting company name to contact them for abuse...? just a question poped up in my mind... as it is sub topic of the main thread.

    Check your server logs to see how he is stealing your content. If he is scraping it and you can identify that then serve him something he will not like.

    Stolen to the point where your analytics code was duplicated as well.. That is LOW.

    Yeah.. it's probably a complete newbie. You can also report it to the domain registrar .

    Reporting to Google is the best option. They take around a week or two. Have patience. I had to deal with this once. But when they took action, his domain was deindexed from Google and 2 days later with Google action in hand i reported him to the host and godaddy. Guess what, they value the Google action. He lost the domain in about 3-4 weeks.

    EDIT: Oh for google to take action, you should have the site in webmaster tools account as i was asked by Google to add the domain to verify ownership of the original site.

    He is probably using the jack jackker plugin. Report to hosting. You can get the details easily via a whois search.

    Don't worry. Just report him to his hosting provider and affiliate network. He will learn very important lesson about IM.
