I've been away for a while and it's nice to say hello to all of my old AR buddies and hope to make some new ones.
I guess this is a good time to post this topic, I've posted it before, but the problem seemed to go away. It is now back... worse than ever.
If anyone has some advice as to what I can do to solve the problem, PLEASE HELP!!!
I am experiencing a very frustrating problem. It doesn't happen all of the time, but it happens MOST of the time.
Since everyone here is so much into improving their SEO rankings, I'm sure you will understand how I feel. Anger, Panic, Frustration!!!!
I live in Staten Island, for those that do not know it, Staten Island is one of the five boroughs of New York City. The areas that I have targeted are Staten Island, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Manhatten and Long Island.
If you search "EIFS inspections staten island," my EIFS website shows up in the #1 and #2 positions, I also show up #3 and #4 from ActiveRain. This problem happens at my direct listings (my website address) and/or at an ActiveRain listing.
When I click on one of the listings, and the occurance switches from listing to listing, many times I am brought to some other HI website, or to mine for an instant and then to the other. Sometimes it is to the same website, sometimes to a completely different website, sometimes to an HI search site or some other type of search site.
Sometimes I am able to "arrow back" to get to the search results page, most of the time I am locked into the "pirate" site and have to do a completely new search to get away. Sometimes, if I try it a second time it works properly, sometimes a different listing gets hijacked.
Almost ALWAYS at least one or more of the listings gets hijacked.
By the way, the sites I am brought to is almost always in a different part of the country, so it's not like it will do anybody any good. But if someone is looking for an inspector, I'm sure they are not going to realize they have been kiddnapped or try to get to me again.
I contacted one of the site owners, he was very nice and insisted he did nothing to create this situation. He gave me the name of his provider.
All of the work and time that I (we) invest in trying to better our SEO and sites should not be in vain.
IT JUST ISN"T RIGHT AND THERE HAS GOT TO BE A WAY OF PROTECTING OUR WORK.
I have two websites, the one that I have noticed the problem with is my EIFS website. I wonder if when my HI website (it is a new site) rises in ranking if the same problem will occur?
