I promote a product for a fairly 'reputable' companys in house affiliate network, I was making decent money until they decided to make a site and get it to #1 in google to save paying my commission. Anyway, i know that happens all the time and i can live with it, but the site that they made has 0 backlinks, 0 pr and its quite new. The content of this sites landing page is duplicate content from their main site, linking directly to the same product i promote. Ive a good mind to try and sandbox them (especially since they aint paid my latest cheque) but i guess i have to work on my site a bit more. Any clues on why this site is beating my unique content, with 700 back links on a mature domain name? ...It goes against everything i know about SEO.
