Whilst checking up on the rankings of my sites I came across a site which I hadn’t seen before which was similar to one of mine, I clicked through and was surprised to see that it was pretty much identical to mine, “You Cheeky Affiliate!” I thought, so I went to Nominet to check who had registered the domain and was surprised to see it was Bodypower Sports Plc, I’m already aware of them as I’d ordered stuff from them before myself.
To be honest I’m not too bothered about it, I actually find it funny that a company with a £19m turnover have to resort to copying sites.
Here’s the evidence: (click image to enlarge)
Fitness Superstore Site
Fitness Superstore Footer
You can see it’s an exact copy of the layout of my site, the menu layout, the image names are the same, it has the same YouTube video and best of all the footer is worded exactly the same as mine, which I worded myself.
So even the big boys copy other sites, thank you Fitness Superstore / Bodypower Sports Plc
