I have an established blog that has been putting out content for a year.
Today I noticed that somebody has cloned my entire website, word-for-word, and hosted it on a separate domain. When I say cloned, I mean you could put them side-by-side and they would look identical, so everything has been copied, including content, layout, etc. I looked at the source and the HTML has been copied verbatim. The new domain has only been registered a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately the copied site is now outranking my real site on a few keywords in google search results! On some keywords the fake site has taken my place on the first page of the search results, and my site is no longer even listed!
What can I do about this?
Update: I filed a DCMA complaint with Google.
Update: I just discovered that he is just using his site as a proxy to access mine. I can block his IP from accessing my site which would effectively solve the problem (maybe only temporarily?), but then what happens when Google investigates the DCMA and finds nothing?
