I have a site that I had been working toward the top of the search engines. I had gotten to #3 and 4 and all of a sudden went to page 4. I worked and worked trying to find out why I dropped. After looking at my traffric facts I found that there was a site www.tvsetmp3.com referring to and crawling my site. When I tried to open it, I had a notification that this site was putting a virus on my computer. It could not fix the virus, but could put it in the valut.

I feel this is why I was dropped down so far so suddenly. Even if that is not it, it is very important that we get this site closed down. I looked at WhoIS and found the owner cannot been contacted. I contacted the domain server and they said I would have to have proof. The people that have provided the domain i EST Domains. (302) 722-4217.

How do I go about getting this site closed down?

Now I have to tackle the spyware and virus it has put in my computer. I will need help on that soon!!!

I've just had the same problem.

I spotted tvsetmp3.com in my web stats refering to one of my sites. As I'd never heard of it, and being curious, I decided to take a look. Big mistake! the site pretends to offer porn videos but of course you need to install a special codec. Not being stupid I tried to cancel and close the browser - but it still installed a trojan - videoaccesscodecinstall.exe which I've now removed.

However, my site has dropped almost entirely out of google rankings recently and I now suspect that the reason is this site linking to it.

I'd recommend asking Google for a reconsideration as I have done. You can do this on Google Webmaster Tools > Dashboard > Request Reconsideration and explaining the situation.

Here is the information I received from Est Domains. I have reported this like you requested to the three places. Here is the email I received from the domain registrar:

Dear Sir/Madam,

We deeply regret the inconveniences caused by the one of our customers.
However, kindly note that as a Domain Name Registrar, EstDomains, Inc
has strictly limited competence in taking decisions and measures against

In case the issue regards the content of the hosted site registered

domain.
Such limitation is substantiated by the limited access to the disputed

Thereof please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. What we
strongly recommend you to do is to contact the hosting company for this
particular domain, who is certainly in a better position to assist you.

contact us again and we will definitely try to find the solution to this
matter.
