Default One of my landing page got ripped!!!!

And I'm ecstatic!!!!! The story in brief form: I was running a very popular branded email submit a few weeks ago, and targeted the main url. There was intense competition to say the least..... But the offer was still converting like crazy at $.025. After a few days my conversion rate started dropping like a rock and then I had to pause the offer. However, I did manage to stay in #1/#2/#3 position for about 5 days straight. I killed the offer once I started losing money....... Now fast forward to now. I found the same offer at one of my other cpa networks and checked the merchant landing page link just to see if it was the same as ones from other networks. Lo and behold there is MY landing page that is now being used as a merchant offer page. The network must be running their own offer or something....... The only edit that it had was an email submit section, whereas mine just had a "click here" button. Also this new page had your typical disclaimer at the bottom. How did I know it was my page? Well, I will admit that I ripped the previous merchant landing page and made some VERY MINOR tweaks to the graphics. Basically I just added a "click here" button. But what I also did was add some bullet points with VERY SPECIFIC, and in my original writing that I added on a number of my other landers. Not only were the bullet points in the same location, but they didn't even bother to change the mismatched font that I had to use because I couldn't find a better one on PIXLR. Also instead of using circular dots for my bullet points I used asterisks, also because I was a newb and couldn't figure out how to use PIXLR properly. They left everything as is. HA! I must be doing something right........

networks do shady shit, but yah that's pretty cool they found it rip worthy. i think that networks seats are CPVLab's biggest customers [just a hunch] think about it... all these networks run offers internally and they WILL rip your stuff if they can. what network was it?

If it's not another marketer, it's the network! Great ideas get ripped off which unfortunately is part of the game.

Pretty much haha. With my edits of course. Honestly, I could care less that it happened, or that others may be copying my pages too. It took me about 1 month to really get comfortable with using Photoshop and Dreamweaver, and now I feel like my design skills are up to par with those who have been in the game for much longer. I'm now at the point where i'm enjoying every step of the process.....
