Abuse of our sitename
We run a b2b portal at bizeurope.com and see main competition is getting
high results for the word bizeurope while there is zero content related to
The sites showing up at yahoo and google for bizeurope are eceurope and
worldbid which are in fact both of the same owner.
Can this use of our name only be caused by searchengine cloaking or
can this be caused by other factors as well?
When I search for "bizeurope" on Google (from the US) I get the worldbid site as #2. If I click on the "cache" link for that site, it says in the Google header (across the top) "These terms only appear in links pointing to this page: bizeurope"
That means that (1) they are not cloaking, because the cache page is what Googlebot saw and (2) someone is using the term "bizeurope" in their links to that site.
It reminds me a little about a news story I heard about a company suing Google because Google would sell adwords to people using trademarked names (for example, I might be able to buy an adword to apppear for people searching for "Ford" even though my site was selling GM's). I can't remember where I read it, and I don't know what the outcome was, but basically the idea was someone trying to divert traffic using a competitor's name.
Anyway to find that link
Ok, if someone linking to that site using the word bizeurope is it then possible
to find this link?
Someone managed to kicked me out of Dmoz and now I see direct competition
showing up under our site name so like to see who is behind all this powerplay.
