Default website imatator

I do regular searches on the internet for lawn care and lawn service in my city, there was a podcast about my SEO not to long ago. For a entire year everything has been doing good with the website and the 10 domains names i have surrounding my website name www.dothanlawncare.com. I recently came across a website called www.dothan-lawn-care.com i think its for my city but not sure. They copied most of my html, website name, and are now ranking top pages like me. The domain was just recently bought also from godaddy i think.

Is there anything that can be done for them coping most of everything of mine. Y would people try to get close to another domain name and copy word for word for there website.

Read my front page and then read theres and tell me what you think and what i could maybe do if there is anything i can do

Would they steal business from me now since they have all that or would i gain business because of the dashes in there website name, i dont think people would remember the dashes or would they

If anyone could help me with any info about this let me know... thanks. I havent had this happen before. Here is there whois info below

@ landonkade, there really isnt much you can do about it. I checked out the website and the it's content is not a copy of yours. It is very clear they are copying you and trying to steal your rank tho.

As for Craig (SprinklerRepair) thats pretty low doing that to a member here who is working hard on their business and then you do that for who knows what reason. I'm sure either to gain traffic for your many sites to sell products or even try and sell the domain to landonkade.

When I went to the site is looks like one of those place holder sites. When you check on the about page it has nothing about them.

It does seem like the goal of the site is to drive traffic to his irrigation site. Also there is no phone number to call for service. So I am guessing anyone who went to that site is not going to get anything out of it.

The weird thing is that in the podcast I talked about Denver Lawn Care.

Yeah that is pretty low down.

Here he is copying my html, here is his:

Whether you live in Dothan, Ashford, Midland City, Headland, Abbeville, Slocomb or anywhere in Houston, Dale or Henry county, Dothan lawn care is your first choice for professional turf management and landscaping.

Here is mine:

We also cover the areas of Houston County, Dale County, Henry County and more. Also here are just some of the city’s we service Dothan, Ashford, Midland City, Headland, Abbeville, Slocomb.

Now tell me he didnt copy my html.........

If he is looking for me to buy that domin name sometime he is tough out of luck, i am not buying something from someone that does something like that, screw ball has nothing else to do in his life

Default Low Life SOB

Who does this "Craig" guy think he is? Competing for a website ranking where he doesn't even live (I checked out his website, he's in Florida)?

What's up with that??!

Why would he do that?

It definitely sounds like a website ransom attempt.

The guy ought to come clean in the forum and explain himself, but I bet the lowlife is to chicken to do that!

I went to his website and got his email:

We should all, and I mean everybody that cares about their forum brothers, send him an email calling him a ***** until him answers the question WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL!!!

Send out an all bulletins alert to all the "forum brothers".

We won't tolerate extortion!

I didn't realalize that it was SprinklerRepair from these forums that is doing this. It now seems that he loved the website I did for Clark Landscaping as well. Why would you PM me asking for my prices and other stuff Craig???

You sir are playing a dirty game and I don't like it.
