Site is not quite 2 months old, so I'm a newbie.
This morning when looking over the Akismet spam list there was a site that actually looked like a legitmate comment, but when the article is clicked on instead of seeing the article posted on my site one of those junk ad sites appeared with snippets of content from the article/blog.
No where on the page was there a reference to my site. Several of my articles were listed and clicking on them just showed a snippet of the article and never any mention of my site.
Akismet showed the IP 18.104.22.168 for the spammer.
Can someone explain what this guy is doing? What damage it does to any search engine rankings--I'm thinking that the duplicate content might be an issue.
I've already banned the IP. Is there anything else that can be done, I'd love to shut this guy down.
