    Hi I use basic websites on my AdWords campaigns to get approval. I am done with wasting so much time on WordPress by making a site. Can someone help me how to rip my competitors site and upload the same on my hosting? I can edit the contents.
    Please help me from start to end if this can be done, if there's a video on this it will be a great time saver.

    Well it depends on the functionality of the website and also if they are using a CMS like wordpress. If the website is basic html, css and javascript you can right click and select "view page source" then copy the text that you see into and HTML editor and then have a look for links to css and javascript files and copy those as well and save them and link them to your main HTML file as well.

    I know this might sound complicated and confusing but without an example its difficult to show you. Just share a link and I can see if it's possible to do and also show you how to do it.

    can you actually search for sites ONLY like that through an advanced google search or something?

    Give me an example domain and I will show you how it can be done. If there are server side files like .php then you most of the times won't be able to see that code because it gets executed on the server.

    You can use google search operators that could refine your search but nothing that would limit your search to websites built only with front end tools that I am aware of.
