Bean Soup with Barley; this blog has been cloned

I love barley.

As a child the beef barley soup in the red and white can was my favorite.

Sometimes, I even make a proper Beef Barley Soup or even Beef Vegetable Barley Soup.

But this one is easy – no stock to make first…

I didn’t even use beef – just grabbed a pack of sausages I had in the freezer.

Soup is supposed to be easy.

Bean Soup with Barley

I used sausage, but ham or ground beef would also be good.

Bean Soup with Barley

That’s all I have to say this day…..

I’m not even going to complain. I realize many people have may worse problems than I do.

But, at the moment, my current problem seems a bit overwhelming to me….

This blog has been cloned.

Every single post, going back to 2006 is on a cloned website.

Somehow I have to figure out how to fix it.

So – if you are reading this on the cloned site (hint: my site ends in .com) STOP.

If you are the one doing the cloning: STOP. What did I ever do to you???

  1. You can try this:

    They’re simply loading your site via a server-side script. All you need to do is block their server’s IP address via .htaccess. Simply open up your server’s access logs, open the cloned page on their site, then view your log for the new entry and you’ll have their IP address.

    It also wouldn’t hurt to submit a DMCA request to Google as well but this will not really be necessary as that content will instantly disappear once you block their IP address.

    But I don’t know how deep you want to dig. You may have to contact your hosting service if you can’t find the IP address in your .htaccess folder log. Your IP address will be the one always used and then suddenly, the cloning site address will show up. But I would definitely get your host involved. Also, if you can find out who hosts the cloned site, you can file a complaint to get the site shut down there.

    I’m so sorry 🙁

  2. I’ve been trying to find their IP – I’ll try that, thanks. I asked my site host about it and the person I chatted with was singularly unhelpful – nice, but worthless. I’ll try again now that I have more info (and get a different person) There host is listed as Cloudflare – which isn’t a host but they know who…. Just pisses me off that I have to spend time doing it. Ah well…. such is life

  3. I would definitely contact Cloudflare as well then. Let them know what’s going on. They’re not a hosting service. They’re supposed to ‘protect’ your site from someone getting past their servers so I would think they’d want to know that someone is using it for the opposite reason. And since it’s happening to you, I imagine it’s happening to many others as well and I’m guessing it’s to steal your ad revenue. I’m really sorry 🙁
