Hello, I did a search just now to see if our site would come up in google.
It did!
I saw the title and the description....but the url was <snip>!

Has anyone seen this before?

If so please let me know how they did this.

This makes us look really bad :)

Thanks
Kenny

Hi, please send me a sticky of your site so I can see what is going on. Maybe they outright stole your site.

Usually, if another URL comes up with your title and description it is because Google happened to find the content there when it visited. Often, this is due to a temporary hosting problem.

THANKS! maybe that is what happened.

I noticed that the domain it was pointing to was also with our host. And that their site is down....

These are dedicated servers so maybe they had the same ip we have now....

That is probably it....

I guess it will just take time for google to update it..

Thanks Again,
Kenny

one of our clients had this problem a while back. Their site on company.com was showing up on some-other-company-tavern.com site in Google. It went away after a couple months but was rather odd. I'm not sure they ever did get to the bottom of it.
