Hi, I have an awful problem, one of our clients seems to have been meddling in SEO and seems to have undone all of the work we have done, at least, thats my professional opinion.
Many of their keywords dropped by about 4-5 pages, some even more, and I investigated today what could be the cause, as this is the only account to have been hit on our server.
I found so far about 5-6 keyword domains registered under their company and for each domain they have uploaded the same files as their business website that we have performed SEO on, therefore creating exact replicas that have been indexed.
What I need to find out is the very first time Google cached these domains, is this possible at all, and I am assuming this is the reason for their drop?
I cant use Wayback, it seems these domains were registered in July 2011 but may have just come into use recently causing the drop in rankings
My boss has been in touch with me and I need to gather the evidence so I dont get the blame. Does anyone have any other suggestions into investigating client meddling? I want to find evidence before we contact them and asking them outright and so far found these domains.
Thanks in advance
