So today I was checking the rankings for my keywords (health products) on Google , when an adwords avertiser got my attention, I clicked and to my surprise it was a copy of my website! word by word, they only added their own adsense code and something like click the adds they are usefull, bla bla bla... Anyway is easy to show this a copy of my website, their domain is very new, and they left some meta tags with the name of the software they used to copy the website!

I was hopping some one could guide me on what to do to take this website down.

Send a "cease and desist" notice.

Be polite, they may not realise.

If they don't respond then contact their host informing them of what's going on and that they failed to respond.

Oh... isn't "something like click the adds they are usefull, bla bla bla..." against adscense's TOC?

Let them know too, perhaps.

I'm no longer a fan of firing a friendly first shot.. This is happening more and more often with the excuse of "I didn't know"..

Step #1 is to call his ISP and ask them their process for filing a DMCA complaint against one of their customers.. You'll find that in most instances they will ask you for your URL and then his.. They will compare the two and simply turn him off..

Then it's up to him to call them and explain himself..
