Now, that's bad enough. But then, the title they used for their page was 'www.oursite.com'. So now, if we search Alltheweb for 'www.oursite.com' their site shows up instead of ours.
Nice work Alltheweb. If this is a common occurrence on your engine, then people might as well, instead of framing small sites like ours, just go ahead and do the same thing with 'www.microsoft.com'!
My thinking was that if the other site could use our url in their title and have it show up instead of ours in a search, then anyone could do the same for any url. In which case, I would hold Alltheweb responsible for delivering the wrong pages. But then, I'm not sure exactly what's going on here. Hopefully, Brett will be able to enlighten me.
It's happened to us before. I found it by looking at link: pages via AltaVista. They were the only search engine that indexed these pages. I guess this happens, often. I was shocked when I first saw our site appearing under another URL.
