My website with automobile niche has been struggling to stand again plagiarism and bot-attacks from last few months.In last quarter, 3 different domains were setup with exact replica of all the contents were made resulting in decreased traffic.
We are sure that they've put some kind of bot to copy all the pages as We've more than 50,000 articles copied. We have lost 30% organic traffic in last quarter.
The attack goes like this -
- A new domain is set up and all the pages are copied with meta tags, description, content, Adsense ad slots etc. The website starts appearing in google for similar keywords and we start losing the traffic.
- The spammy website doesn't show the copied content, but redirects users to some other websites.
- As soon as We report it togoogle and it starts disappearing, a new domain is set up with same method.
We've tried to contact google via product forum and they've helped us once by flagging the site and removing it from searches. What can be done to make sure that such attacks doesn't affect us in future?
