Arrow Page jacking

Page jacking is a method of search engine spam that’s similar in nature to scraping. The difference is that with page jacking, whole pages — and even whole web sites — are copied for the purpose of increasing search ranking and traffic for another site.

In one example of page jacking, a person might copy a whole site like Microsoft. They then cloak that site, but it still appears in search listings. Then, when unsuspecting users click through the listing for Microsoft they’re taken not to the Microsoft page, but to another page that the hijacker funnels them to.

Not only is page jacking a good way to get your web site delisted from search engine results, but it’s also a crime that can result in a stiff fine and possibly jail time. There are also trademark and copyright infringement issues associated with page jacking.

Pagejacking is the behavior of stealing high-ranking web page content from another site and placing it on your site in the hopes of increasing your own site's search engine rankings.

Pagejacking is stealing the contents of a Web site by copying some of its pages, putting them on a site that appears to be the legitimate site, and then inviting people to the illegal site by deceptive means - for example, by having the contents indexed by major search engine s whose results in turn link users to the illegal site.

Pagejacking is the process of illegally copying legitimate website content (usually, in the form of source code) to another website designed to replicate the original website. To accomplish pagejacking, a fraudulent pagejacker copies a favorite Web page from a reputable site, including its actual HTML code.
