- scam site
WARNING, WARNING, WARNING illegally copies sites/forums word by word. This for one purpose only and that is just in order to get traffic from search engines. A SEO trick, Internet search manipulation, where manipulate Google search results.

As far as I know this is by far the most extensive copying of sites in the history of Internet.

The Riga based (Baltikum) site automatically copies sites without permission, and disturbs the search results in Google, as well as other search engines, in a drastic way. has no contact information on their scam site (obviously they don't want to be contacted).

There is no way of removing the copied/stolen/plagiarized content at There is a link for this on the site, but they put up impossible/unreasonable conditions for removing the copied content at their site, and might not follow requests.

Other scam sites (marketed as "Regional SEO friendly catalogs & archives");
  1. - Catalog and archive of web sites: "Sweden"
  2. - Directory and archive of web sites: "Germany"
  3. - Directory and archive of web sites: "United Kingdom"
  4. - Directory and archive of web sites: "Ireland"
  5. - Vector Images ("Partner") steals the content of your web site!, which is stealing your copyrighted content, has about 200 000 unique visitors every month, and rising! This with the help of only stolen material. Just a few lines are written by the owners of this site. In other words, the original sites - with the original material - have lost more than 200 000 visitors/month (and will loose a lot more as time goes by, if nothing is done).

Second most visitors to is from Sweden.

98,96% of the visitors is thru Google. (created 6 Feb 2008) started copying sites in November 2010, but it was not until in March 2012 when they achieved high places in the search engines results.


The purpose

I have asked 5 times what they expect to gain from the archive, but it's impossible to get any answer. They try to avoid the question in every way they can. This is clear proof of that isn't what they wish to appear to be.

In what way is the people behind making money and where will they see themselves making money from the archive in the future? Where do they want their income to come from regarding this archive? is not creating the archive just for fun or because they have nothing else to do. They're not working for the government or in a non-profit organization or research project. The archive is an obvious business idea, but they can not produce an answer for why they're creating the archive. They can not give the real reason; that they create the archive from other peoples hard work in order to attract the search engines to their own sites (which is a lot).

The only reason InArchive gives in questions about this is that the archive is a backup for site owners. But what the use is supposed to be for others is not the question here. What's in it for the people behind the site?

The site has been active for about three years but still their very simple web site contains nothing apart from the stolen material. Their FAQ is minimal, no contact info, bad design, etc. This also shows that only cares about the data they steal from others. The more data, the more hits they will get from the search engines and the more money they can make on their other web sites.

Legal matters

InArchive copies your web site without even asking or getting permission for this. added rules in their FAQ for their site where they write that they will respect "publicity right, privacy right, copyright". But copies all material they can get a hold of and never ever care about if it's copyrighted.

I've asked about their view on taking other peoples material and use for their own personal benefit. But avoid all legal questions in any way they can. has no answer whatsoever for any of the basic questions;
  • Why don't you respect the copyright (on pages and in code)?
  • What gives you the right to decide what to publish from other site owners (copyrighted) information?
  • By what right do you archive - AND REPUBLISH !!! - other peoples material, for everyone to see all over the world?
  • Haven't you even bothered to consider what is legal and what's not? seem to think that just because the information is there and visible, they're free to steal the material and use it for their own personal benefit.

Googles cache
InArchive makes a ridiculous comparison between Googles cache and InArchive.

Google cache is just cached for a very limited time, in the opposite to InArchive. wants to compare InArchives storage for many years to come (10 years or above, they can't give any time limit) of other peoples hard work for personal benefit, that only creates problems for the creator and owner of the original work, with some search engines temporary and non-searchable cache for a completely different purpose. also claim that what they do is nothing different from the site, in spite of the obvious fact that there is nothing similar between and - waybackmachine
In a way to justify that they steal other site owners, companies and organizations material wants to compare themselves with, but;
  1. What does is different in many important ways.
  2. You can not do something illegal just because somebody else does it.
There are many, many differences between and, but one of the most important differences here is that the copied info in isn't searchable in search engines in the way it is in In other words, doesn't disturb the search results from the search engines. doesn't want to comment on what I write them about this;
  • Just because somebody is breaking the laws it doesn't mean that it's free for you or anyone else to break the laws.
  • If you see somebody who steals a car you just can't do the same and justify this with that there are others who also steal cars. wants to compare themselves with the site, but can't explain why they want to do the same thing as another site is already doing. Also, what is doing is drastically worse in every possible way. So InArchive is not only copying other sites, they're also copying the concept of, but is just making a very bad version of (since don't care about anything else than moving the traffic to other sites towards's own sites).

The only reply gives on questions about their right to steal other's material is that it now (after they've talked to me and a few years too late) added a function where it should be possible to block (might very well be a lie) from copying the site thru a server utility called "robots.txt".

But robots.txt has nothing to do with what's not allowed according to laws, general rules and regulations as well as ethics. Robots.txt is just a possibility for a site owner to block access for certain robots that the site owner is aware exists.

Also nobody knows if really follow the rules given in robots.txt. There is no proof whatsoever that they do this or even that's bot is really named "" (general name) as they now all of a sudden claim.
  • What about all those site owners who;
    - still don't know that they need to block's spider?
    - don't know how to do this in robots.txt? don't want to answer my question about this;
  • I can not rob a bank, and then claim that the bank had the possibility to stop me from robbing their bank, but they didn't, so then everything is ok. Right? (the robber) goes to the bank (me) and steals the money (my material). Then (the robber) justify the theft by that the bank (me) should have had a better protection (like a robots.txt together with an impossible knowledge about all bots in the world).

I asked the following;
  • If you really reason as you claim you do, then it would be ok for you to block search engines from accessing all of the material you've copied from other site owners. Will you do that???
Here stopped replying. Up until this question said they welcomed my questions. But this was a too tough question for them since the answer ("no") would definitely, for everybody, reveal's hidden motive for their archive.

Bad bots / Spambots -

Practical use? can't give me any other reason for creating their archive other than that it can be used as some kind of backup for site owners. There is no research purpose or anything else, just backup.

  • Every site owner has a backup themselves of what they find useful having a backup for.

  • copies a site maybe once in a lifetime, or a few times at the most.

  • only archive some web pages at each site (even if it can be a large percentage). can not give any answer to the following questions;
  • Who wants to see what a certain web page showed exactly at the time it was read by InArchives bot, for example one year, 3 months, 2 days, 4 hours, 32 minutes and 12 seconds ago?
  • What if I want to see the different content on the page 43 seconds later?
  • What is the use - for anyone not related to - of a random backup at a random time from random content, which is only (in most cases) text (which also is hard to read), as in
  • What about all other pages, that isn't archived at the site?
  • How is it possible to understand the meaning of a text where parts of the context is missing (even related images)... how useful is that?

  • There isn't even any search function in the archive!!!
    You can only search for domain names (however not a specific domain) and when the list of domain names gets too big, you can only see the first domains in the list, no matter how many other hits there are.
    If you'd like to search on for example "bostad Stockholm" it just isn't possible. So there is no way of finding anything in the archive (in the opposite to for example which has an advanced search function). How can it then be called an archive? has, after reading this page and in order to complicate it for you to find what they've archived, even taken away the possibillity to search for domains!!! The only way for you now to see what has in the archive is to go thru Google. Due to the information on this page also blocked their index so it's only possible to see the first page of the list of domains for each letter of the alphabet.
Many domains can't be found in but they're there, for example; - 371 pages.

When glancing thru different archived sites at it becomes obvious that a lot of the copied material is nothing else but garbage. A collection of words with no meaning whatsoever.
What's the use of this for anyone else than the people behind

There is no processing of the material archived by in order to make it easier to read or find, it's just presented as it is read without any effort of making it easy to read (since the search engines don't care about this).

Most of the links in the archive leads to empty pages, without any content at all!
How useful is an archive like that?

I haven't seen many pages archived at where the images are archived with the text.
In the pages I've seen, doesn't archive the code/scrips either.
  • What about images, videos, sounds, word/excel files, etc?
For example PDF files is not stored at (generates the error message "This link is not archived, because page administrators not allow to do it, or info in link are the same as in similar links, or it is not supported by our system rules.")
The real reason for this is that InArchive only cares about the text for the search engines.

Every site has information that is changed and replaced by something better/more correct from time to time. And there are many occasions for each site where they don't want some old information disclosed. But don't hesitate to override the site owners will. The inevitable result will be that the value of the information on Internet decreases. Also many who searches for information will get confused and desinformed.
  • What about those site owners who don't want some specific old information to be shown - for many different reasons -, but which publish for many years to come, without even the site owners knowledge?
    When and if they discover it, it can be too late - and probably will be.

Additional info about

Who needs and for what? doesn't just copy material from specific sources with valuable, interesting information, for example the government's web pages, and InArchive doesn't copy material just concerning certain subjects. There is no plan in what sites to be copied and InArchive doesn't copy any specific types of sites. It's just random copies of random sites. usually doesn't copy whole sites, just random parts of them.

InArchive can't say for how long period of time they will keep the stolen material. mentioned that the copies should be kept for maybe 5-10 years or more. If the time period was 50-100 years (or more) maybe there would be any use for it. For researchers. As it is now, the copies just don't serve any purpose for anyone outside doesn't copy each site regularly. Some sites (or all?) are only copied once in a lifetime. As an example InArchive has made one copy of the newspaper "DN" and that was done 2011-07-14. After that nothing has been copied. copy just any crap out there, and don't care about the importance of the information. then republish the web pages, usually in a way that makes it more or less unreadable. They don't care how it looks, since the only thing that's important for is to have the words and texts that attracts the search engines, in order to trick and manipulate the search engines.'s main purpose, and seemingly only purpose according to them, - which they come back to all the time - is for site owners to use InArchive as a backup. That's as meaningless as anything can be.

Just from these facts it's clear that there are no advantages with, except for the people themselves who are involved with

Who gains from
Only the people directly involved with creating the archive at will benefit from the copied material! would not do what they've done if there hadn't been any search engines.

InArchive is not just an archive, it's also a publishing system, and it's here where the people behind InArchive see a profit to be made. By manipulating the search engines to lead searches to instead of to the original sites with the relevant information. Winners are InArchive and loosers are everybody else.

When the popularity in the search engines increases get more visitors who click on their ads (as their common ads for casinos, online games, etc).
InArchive can also use the site, in various ways, to increase traffic to all the other sites that they have where they sell different products and services (like hosting, servers, web development/design, etc).

Nobody else but will gain from the archive. Ever!

What are the disadvantages with
There are several disadvantages with There is especially one very big disadvantage; the search results in the search engines gets distorted. Instead of that searches leads to the original site with the original & relevant information (that is up to date), the search engines points to

But there are other important disadvantages with the archive. For example that the site owner is no longer in control of what information to be displayed. A lot of irrelevant information will be out there and confuse everybody. The users of the search engines will get less useful and reliable search results.

Even the search engines will be affected since they not only will have to index a lot more material (uses more resources and results in less time for real sites with valuable & relevant information) that also is irrelevant/duplicates/not updated. The search engines will also produce less reliable results. Users of search engines will be less content with the search engines that don't block sites like

The reason for why don't ask for permission from the site owners to copy their material is that knows that very few or none would let copy their sites if they only knew what was going on. It would be like asking the bank if it was ok to rob them.


Detailed information (complete mail conversation with, hijacks your web site!!! - Warning writes;
"Q: Do you archive all sites, files?

A: No. We consider robots.txt files. If there are forbidden content - we do not archive. Also we do not archive large files. And do not index sites with illegal content (by our opinion). Or, if found by our system illegal content later - than remove that.
But they will not tell you how to block in robots.txt! keeps the name of their search spider and its IP a secret.
In this way they make it impossible for everyone to block out their search spider!
So, what writes here is an obvious lie just to make it look legitimate! writes;
"Remove my site from
Note - contact data should be the same as Whois data for
domain - let we can make sure changes asked by domain owner.
If different data (name, e-mail etc) provided - we will ignore such
request, and will not send even approvement request.
There's no logic in this. If email and name is registered, then everybody also can give the email and name that they can see just as well as So it seems like what writes is nothing else than a scam.
They want your email and name, in order to collect email-addresses to spam? require of you to give out your email in the domain registration as well as to them, but don't want to reveal their own email on their site, or even in Whois.

First InArchive copies your site without even asking or getting permission for this, then if/when you discover it you will have to request them to take away the copied content (which they might not do anyway), and only if you give out your email and name! And only if this information matches what is registered and can be seen by everyone in Whois (where you might not want this information to be seen!).

After has your web site name and info, your name as the one responsible at the site, your email and your IP, what do you think this dodgy organization will use this for?
