>eyezshine - in many of the cases of hijacking that I've seen the hijacking site is only using a small block of text from the hijacked site (maybe 2-3 sentences). The hijacker pages are made up of several dozen of these snippets taken from many different sites on the same topic.
Right but those are not 302 redirect hijackers and I don't believe they are causing the problem unless they are cloaking. The problem ones are the ones that are using your exact page but google indexes their url.
When you check google's cache of the page and it's exactly your page content, then that is 302 hijacking.
Then there are other bugs google has and I cannot figure out why but I'm working on it. For some reason google indexes urls like this...
Those are some of the results I get when I do an inurl:domain.com search on google. My site does not get alot of traffic from google but it does get some. Also the home page cannot be found at all.
The random content and fixing the no www problem did not fix this site and it's ranking problem. I just don't understand why google would index urls like that?
I used a spider and indexed my site with it to see if I could figure out if it was my site that had the problem but my site came up clean with no broken links like the ones google is listing.
So I can only assume that another site is linking to mine wrong but I have so many pages linking to my site that it would be impossible to figure out who it is? Plus the site is #1 in Yahoo and MSN for a popular money keyword and has no problems at all.
But leave it to google to mess everything up.
