So it appears that a former friend now a competitor is copying every new idea I come up with for my site. For example, I make up a new category in my site and a couple of days later that same category (exact title and similar articles will appear). If I dont do anything, my comp doesnt do anything. If I do something, comp. follows suit. Competition is cool because it make us grow smarter but I got tobe honest that I feel like a grade school student nagging (but do realize this is part of reality in any business). But damn it is discouraging to see that every new unique idea and content I spend a lot of time thinking about ends up being taken easily by a former friend and now competitor within a local area. As for my defense, i will focus and make sure my rankings continue stay on top of my competitor so that visitors to my site will see me first and hope they see me more of an authority. I just fear that my rankings may not last forever. The comp definitely wants to kill my business but every action my comp does just gives me more fuel for my fire inside but I need to act carefully. I wonder if anyone has any similar experiences/ solutions you would like to share? Thanks for reading.
