I'm not sure what you mean by 'page jacked'. Please clarify that. Was your site hacked?

What I do is take a fairly unlikely little snippet of text and search for it,
as an exact phrase, always in Google. See what comes up. Repeat with other engines as needed.

Let us know what you find, exemplified as always. -Larry

Well, there is a site that are ranking good in google with a certain keywords. The site is clearly a spam site, 5158.c3lo13.info.

c3lo13.info is the main site with about 70000 subdomains (yes, seventy thousand), like the one I already mentioned.

There are also this :
1km672.info
48p94b.info
jjj62r.info
rz3w9.info
and I am shure there are hundreds of others by the same owner. (al have 60 - 70000 or something subdomains)

The google description sometime includes something like
" keyword keyword keyword keyword keyword ..more pages from ******* .. keyword keyword keyword"

(******* is my site.)

Maybe the site c3lo13.info just scraped my site, then used cloaking showing the scraped content to the search engines and their money making content to the visitiors?

Sounds like page jacking/scraping to me. Same difference.

But page jacking and scraping are not the same is it?

I have to mention also that google removed my site from their index the same day I discovered this issue.

Scraping is just an automated form of page jacking, in my opinion.

Ok. I see, what do you call it when somebody use 302 to exploit your site?

I know that 302/301 hijacking is sometimes referred to as page jacking, but the term "page jacking" was in use long before 301/302 hijacking came into being.

Page Jacking, the way I use it, means the act of accessing somebody else's web page and copying some or all of the page for your own use.

Ok. I see, what do you call it when somebody use 302 to exploit your site?

I call it 301/302 hijacking. But then again, who says I'm the definitive expert? I'm just a regular guy :)
