comment Hacked site, understanding the problem
You can rewrite your question to be less open? As well, it would help to know some configuration details such as Wordpress version, OS and version, any services such as FTP and DNS versions and so on. It is possible that the hacker is not getting in through Wordpress. Make sure that all of your installed software are running safe versions.

comment Unusually High Bandwidth
Use a log file analysis tool. If it is HTTP, then the reports should tell you exactly what is eating your bandwidth.

comment Reporting and stopping fake website
I did understand what you were saying and I understand the situation at least in part. I asked the two questions to know how to answer your question. It is the other side of the coin and focuses the answer to your needs.

comment Do I get penalized for hosting a blog in a subfolder?
Not at all. It is like having many people rowing a boat, some will not row as hard as the rest. However, it is always best to update and make all pages perform as well as they can. It not always easy to find the time of course.

comment Do I get penalized for hosting a blog in a subfolder?
As well, moving the blog to a sub-domain does not help your main site. It is just another site. You would have to rely on conversion tactics to get blog visitors to visit your other site more than converting blog users to visit pages on the same site.

Please tell us more. For example, are they using any of your content? Is your company trademarked?

comment Remove extension from URL using a rewrite without resulting in a redirect loop
As it should. I do not understand what you want- to redirect a page to a directory then the directory back to the original page does not make sense to me.

comment Another website is mirroring and ranks above my site in search results
@gabe I know that copyright is enforceable internationally, however, it does take time. Why do I know this? Because my mother worked for one of the worlds largest law firms that represented corporations, and governments. Copyright and international copyright with trademark infringement was a major part of her work.

@gabe I do not know. In the U.S. it is very effective and I suspect also true in Europe and other countries. That aside, think of it this way, I subpoena and file a law suit in the U.S. and require you to appear. You do not. I get a default judgement and present the judgement and request a lien against property and income. What government is going to care enough to stand in the way? None. Getting the lien enforced could potentially be difficult to enforce, however, if you are a company, then it becomes easier to enforce. I place a lien on any property and income within any cooperating country.

comment Changing registration to Private/ Anonymous with .co.uk domains
They did for me. I used to be a registered ISP and webhost and I used GoDaddy since they launched. In the past few years, I have been cleaning house of old domains and needed to update the registration with an address that was not my office. September 2 years ago, I changed the address and made all registrations private. These were all domains that have been around for years. In fact, only a few original domains were still registered with Network Solutions and had to be transferred. But the rest had been registered with GoDaddy for years. All are private now.

comment Does resubmitting a modified site map affect current ranking?
@bbching Yes. Update or replace the sitemap that exists. You do not actually have to re-submit any sitemap. Google and Bing will keep checking your sitemap for updates.

comment Another website is mirroring and ranks above my site in search results
@gabe Oh. I get it! Excellent point!! Seriously. I missed it entirely. I am not sure if filing a DMCA (with Google) and having an entry in Chilling Effects (a co-op of search engines, hosts, and other entities) would at least shut down the advertising by shutting down the site. I would assume Adsense should stop, but I am not sure if there is any history on tracking a culprit through ad revenue. It would make sense of course. Bad guys always give themselves away somehow- they have to. If is a law of nature in profiting from cheating. Thanks for the note! I was a bit slow yesterday.

comment Common Header & Footer for HTML Site
I has been a long time since I used include files and IIS (over a decade in fact), but I did not have to change the file extensions at all. Hopefully, that is still true. Of course you can just bulk rename your files from the command line push come to shove. At the time, my site was over 50,000 hand edited pages so I understand your dilemma and you have my empathy. Good Luck!

comment Changing registration to Private/ Anonymous with .co.uk domains
I use GoDaddy for all of my site registrations and they have an option for privacy that is amongst the best and rather smooth functioning since it is a company that GoDaddy owns. I have been happy with my private registrations and I recommend it for you. Of course there are other companies that may offer a similar service for less, but there is nothing like handling the whole shabang in one simple transaction year after year. Easy peasy!
