Mirrors of my site being put up on different domains

 6:52 pm on Sep 13, 2010 (gmt 0)

Hi All,

I am facing an issue with my website. My website has been mirrored and placed on completely separate domains.

This has happened 2-3 different times on 2-3 domains from past few weeks.

Can anyone advise me anyway to stop this from happening and of anyway to actively monitor the web for mirrors of the site?

Thanks in advance for any help.

my advice would be to act very quickly as we fear this situation has killed 90% of our organic rankings.

There's no way to stop it that I know of. What you can do is vigilant monitoring and rapid response, as speedshopping wrote. Use the DMCA as needed. It's a lot like protecting a trademark. If you don't get proactive, you can lose the game.

Maybe a service like Copyscape, they offer a monitoring tool which will notify you when duplicated content appears on the web, ideally detecting the duplicate site?

Not used it myself but seems appropriate.

I added this thread to another thread but seems more appropriate here - can anyone help?

Can i ask if anyone has any experience with our potential situation: about 8 wks ago i found a .info domain that had identically copied our .co.uk website and google had managed to index 3,000 pages before i got the content removed - however, could this be the reason for our recent drop in rankings for over 100,000 keywords - the rogue domain still has 350 pages in google (viewing these pages just shows empty html), however when i look at googles cached version it states the page is our .co.uk page and not the .info one!?
