    SO yeah i have started a new website just yesterday , its a review website

    and today i have found a website EXACTLY like my own website
    ..same template, same colors, same KEYWORDS, same cathegories ( from a logical point of view it should be cathegorised like this ..everybody would have do the same) ...everything is identical exept the review articles ..even the picture used is the same...

    the website seems to be online since almost 5 years ..and mine is only 24hr years old..

    i use a technique that dont rely on google ranking , i post my website directly on forum or blogs ect ..but plan to get ranked one day maby he will notice my website ?!

    what should i do ..i love my template and the top 10 order and rating is just fine ...i dont realy want to change anything... :-s

    can i get into trouble? should i change my product or template ?



    thanks

    Although I dont understand this, why dont you look at the internet archive and find out when he changed his site to look like your site. See if it happened before your site or after

    actualy i think that i have build my website like him , thats the point .
    i have never seen his website before we dont know each other ect ect
    like i said in my original post we use the same template so its somehow normal that our website look a litle bit the same
    BUT
    now its realy the identical we did take the same stock picture same color theme same review plugin ectect even the top 10 review is the same products in the same order ectect at a point i almost get afraid of that coincidence lol i did build my website the way i like and 24hr later i find a almost copy paste version of my website only article are different

    im sure its pure coincidence , im sure he did not copy me

    but still that confuse me ...do i keep my website as it is and start promote like crazy or i change my template?

    I would change it up a bit just to make it different. And then I look at the date on the post. LOL@myself ;)
