    Hello,

    I recently noticed that another site was copying entire posts of my blog. I send them an e-mail to remove the content which was duplicated from my site.

    I recieved this respons:
    Hello.

    In last days we are receiving many emails similar to yours asking to remove links on some of our websites, in reference to recent changes in Google algorithm "Penguin", but unfortunately our team is very busy, since we are less people in the company,and we cannot spent the time of our webmasters to resolve these tasks.

    If you do not have problem waiting, we will eliminate this as soon as we can, perhaps some weeks. If you need it urgently, we have no choice but to charge for it, because time is money in this moment.

    The price we fixed when mails like yours started to arrive, is 30 euros for removal of content or links in a single website. In case you're interested let me know, and I tell him how to proceed.

    Yours


    Anyone had anything similar yet?


    Thanks for your advice!

    Thanks for your reaction scorpion king.

    Will Google "punish" their entire site with this form or just the link to content I report?

    They will de-index just that content from search engines. If they found they copied from many sites they will ban there site.

    that's funny stuff....

    Sorry OP nothing against you at all, I just thought that reply was classic. Clearly these guys don't give a shit, they probably run dozens such sites doing the exact same thing. If they are out ranking you for your own content that sucks. If you are outranking, you may as well just leave it alone. Your content is getting the credibility of being published and indexed first, so you are seen as the original source, and these guys are just "syndicating it from you".... of course it would be nice if they linked back to you, but it doesn't sound like they like to play fair. Sending site into google? Might work, but we all know just how fair and effective their anti-Spam team is don't we. If they do something about, please update this post. Would be good to know their response (if any) in such situations.

    Cheers.

    Spot on mate...
    @OP
    Being serious now(i was serious, but in another way...leave it...), don't bother about it. Are you sure you posted it first? If you did, then just chill.. Google is smart enough to take care of these stuffs...

    All your new posts, you should add a link to your site, every so often. So they will either have to take the time to remove it or leave it there and it gives you the credit for it.

    A safe thing to do would be to have a date stamp on your pages, so Google knows who published the content first... and who 'stole' it ;)
