I'm having a SEO optimised 7 year old website which rank no. 1 on google for different keywords.
Pages are www.example.com/page1.php , www.example.com/page2.php .
A competitor copied whole website and with few added pages uploaded a website on a very old domain like this;
www.xyz.com/somepages.html and www.xyz.com//page1.html www.xyz.com//page2.html
He is not using any title and related tags just copied content exactly with same images and all, means only layout is different, otherwise its exactly same website.
Now does I need to let google know this is my content etc? Does it effects my ranking as today i'm on no. 1 and he is on 15th.
Most important question is why he is using two forward slash and .html extension? .html i can understand that someone may think that .html is more beneficial than .php for seo but why //?
