Probably every one involved in IM has (or has had) a replicated website. The problem with this, as I see it, is that you and everybody who signed to use this site, are all advertising it at the same time. Your ad just gets lost in the crowd.
Any thoughts?

You've got a good point there, George. There's logic to using the replicated site in that it was obviously effective enough to convince YOU to join, so it should probably convince others also.

Also, often people don't have the knowledge or skills to create their own high converting web page, so the replicated site is attractive because it's easy for them.

Sometimes the replicated sites take advantage of this lack of skill by hiding "code" in the page which benefits the maker and not the user. Many people don't know how to check to see if ads on their pages are giving them credit for clicks, for example.

Of course,this can also happen with "professionally" designed websites for offline businesses as well. I've found a lawn equipment site that the designer stuffed the title and keywords with ads for his web design company instead of for lawn equipment.

Because the info was only seen by search engines and not easily by people, the lawn people had no idea they had paid him to advertise his own business instead of theirs.

Thank Scott, your point about hidden code within replicated websites that acually benefit the designer rather than the user brings up a very valid point.
As most of us are not really good at IT stuff, is there a simple way of checking, and possibly removing this code?

George, if the site is one that you've uploaded on your own hosting account you'd be able to make changes by editing the page and uploading it again to replace the old one.

Depending on how determined to be sneaky the original creator of the page was, you might be able to notice places where your information should be and make corrections to the page.

If you're not familiar with viewing and editing the html source coding, you'd probably want to get someone who is skilled in it to do it for you.

An easy way to just check for obvious things, you can just visit your site in a browser. While on the site, you can "view page source" and see the actual text that makes up the site. Depending on the browser you use this may be called something slightly different.

While most of the information probably won't make much sense, you'd be able to look for places where maybe your ID or name should be, or possibly phrases that don't seem right for your site's content.

This is a safe way to do a simple check and not worry about messing up the code, but you might not notice anything obvious.

Sneaky people make use of the fact that most people don't work in the html coding and that's why replicated sites are attractive to them.

Hope this helped give some insight
