Sometimes, we find out that someone has copied our website contents and used them without our permission or for phishing/scams. I found this out the hard way, as you can see from a previous community question of mine: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/search-engine-optimization/s...

There are also times when we find unusual traffic spikes in our Google Analytics that cause our sites to be declined with Affiliate programs or Google Adsense. These issues can be a headache and also, causes heartache. Again, I asked the community for help on this one too: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/search-engine-optimization/d...

In both instances, I got a great discussion from the community, but no-one could really help me with any solutions. Therefore I did some research on my own, and asked a few ambassadors, and found my own solutions.

I promised some members that I will make a training to show my results, so this is it.

My training provides the methods I used, together with other member's trainings which I followed to gain more secure protection for my websites. At the end I, have included proofs of the positive results, that I had achieved from using these methods.


First: You Need To Check If Your Content Has Been Copied

1. The best way to check if anyone is copying your work, is to either, do a search of your website name in Google, or, you can check your Google ranking in WA - Site Health.

If you choose the latter then click on your WA profile menu -Websites.

2. Click on the 'view details' of your site, as below:

You are most welcome, best to get it done early as another dear member had her content stolen and ranked before she published it. Not sure how that happened, but there are lazy selfish people out there 😄

Hope that this will help prevent you from any such issues.

You are welcome dear Louise, hopefully I have helped you to prevent what I went through.

I am actually banned permanently from Google Adsense and got declined by a few other affiliate programs because I had no idea that people were copying my sites and using them for X-rated adult sites!

Anyway, be very careful and protect your online assets and the best to your success here my friend :)

That's shocking! I would be finished if that has happened to my site! I am so sorry, Saane. It's just so hard to understand what motivates some people - their lives must be truly awful to make them do this kind of thing.
Now I am nervous to go and check - but it's something that has to be done.
Thank you so much for this share, it truly is so important.
Have you tried showing Google Adsense the evidence of what has happened to turn the permanent ban around? There must be something or someone who can help with changing that. What a harsh penalty. Same with the affiliate programs who have declined you. Perhaps Kyle, Carson, Jay or one of the Ambassadors can assist you with that?
Blessings to you lovely, I truly hope & pray this is turned around for you.

It's okay dear,
I was hurt when Google AdSense declined me twice. I wrote and explained what I found but they said no. I don't think I will use them anymore, really they should be on to it and blocking these bots from their analytics in the first place. I am at peace now that I know what has been happening. Site support have been as helpful as they can be, but I think these bots are quite a new issue.

Thank you anyway, I hang on because of people like you in WA 😄
