Hi there buyyourcar

Welcome to the Webmaster Central Help Forum.

And I'm sorry to hear about your challenges.

There are a number of steps that you can do if someone is copying your content.

First, if they appear in search results, you could recreate a search query where this content is found. And then you can simply use the "Send Feedback" option that appears with all search results. These are reviewed too so this may help.

But for me, at least, this does not really deal with those that stole, if this is the case your content (have to say "if" as I am sure you'll understand).

Second, you can file a DMCA report to Google if they have stolen your content.

Third you can find out who they are http://whois.domaintools.com/  and report him to his hosting company. Some suggest you could also file a DMCA against the hosting company - which I think is a pretty cool response to do too!!!

Do note DMCA's are legal things so you need to make sure you hold the copyright. Important: There are potential fines so read up on this.

Fourth, if you think these sites are spam, report them

I've included a simple article on this topic in case there are other things that you can learn about dealing with others using content that may not be their own.

All the best with this and please do let us know how you get on.
