Over the last 4 months, we've seen a few sites begin to rank higher than us when using Google's inurl:ourdomainname.com (for discussion, let's call them the "othersite.com")
With respect to the "othersite.com", we noticed they were using "ourdomainname.com" in one of their url's and we followed their "remove url" procedure.
They removed (about a month ago) our information (our scraped home page), but still kept the url containing our domain name e.g.: othersite.com/ourdomainname.com". The CONTENT of their page (instead of our scraped home page) now contains text such as "no information on url was found" BUT their page HEADER shows it returned with 302 FOUND/200 OK instead of what we'd like to see which as a a 404 or 410.
But, Google does not seem to understand the content of that page and goes with the 200 OK. If you read the content of the page displayed, it's obvious there is no relevant information for ourdomain.com, so why does Google continue to show their page?
Should we be concerned, or just ignore it?
