    should I report this example of cloaking?
    I use google alerts service for some of my sites. Just got an alert from them that they had visited my url but when I clicked on it it wasn't that at all. Someone had showed google my url but when I look it is a scraper site.

    is this what you report in the google/webmaster tools spot?

    or should I even worry about it . . .

    This is scraping and it should be reported to the network as well. Reporting it to Google helps you reclaim your stolen content. Reporting it at the network helps you not need to continue reporting it to Google every week.

    when one searched on my particular domain without the dot-com attached they were given a result in google that showed some of my text in the results but when you clicked on the link you went to another site, one made for adsense.



    reported it via google webmaster tools.

    This is the same thing that happened to several affiliates on SAS and some of it is discussed here:

    Definitely report it! These are the type of practices that no one should let pass by, generally the work of some shady SEO company that is trying to steal your traffic for their customers. Not only report it to Google, but report it to the the webhost as well.
