Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Someone registered http://example1-example2.com and copied 100% of my site. I believe this may be hurting my rankings.
In google the site is only listed as supplemental.
-I have emailed the site owner and asked him to remove the illegal content.
-I reported to the domain register service that his phone number is missing a digit and asked for the real contact information.
-I reported the abuse to Google.
What else can I do. It seems that there should be a straight-forward way to "black-list" this kind of site.
Any other suggestions?

[edit reason] de-link the URL [/edit]
" For Services that do, Google will, in appropriate circumstances, terminate repeat infringers."
I've done that a couple of times, it mostly works. And send one to their host as well. That works almost every time.
Sorry that happened to you :( Good Luck!
If so, find out his IP and block access to your site. Though one can't catch up with all this scrapers, it might help for the moment with this special one...
Regards and good luck to you.
I am assuming that Google would easily be able to determine the site is 100% copying my site and simply not list or crawl the copied site.
