    Hi all

    Have a look at the difference's between these 2 website

    A1BN, Independent BMW Specialist in Stevenage
    &
    www.bmwspecialistleicester.co.uk/‎

    As many of you know I work for A1BN Stevenage and we have amongst other things a very enviable website, which has been copied obviously copied without our knowledge/consent by Garage 786 in Leicestershire. We are obviously quite miffed regarding the use of our website design layout and even our wording has been blatantly copied.

    We would just like to point out that we are not connected to this company in any way shape or form. Doubtless to say that I'm sure that the work they carryout will be of good quality(we can see they've been going for some time)and we are not in any way disputing their business, in fact being so far away from us there's no reason for us to be concerned by having another independent BMW business in the market place, but this blatant and obvious copying of our website design has effected our standing on Google, which we've spent a long time working on and also customers confusing their company with ours due to how it looks on Google as you can see from the scripture below.

    A1BN is the ultimate independent BMW service centre. Our BMW service department is dedicated to delivering a quality service for your BMW and Mini ..

    Hopefully this will be sorted soon, but appreciate you all taking time to read this post and for taking on board what we're saying, coping the format, even using the words used in our website effects our business standing on Google, which we have discovered today.

    Thanks for reading

    Steve

    Yep, they have ""A1BN is the ultimate independent BMW service centre. Our BMW service department is dedicated to delivering a quality service for your BMW and Mini maintenance as well as any BMW repair needs. We are based in Stevenage next to the A1." - still recorded in their webpage.

    Right click > view source and you'll be looking at the DNA of the page.

    It seems we've pressed a nerve, this afternoon we got a call an apology, it seems that the owner wanted a revamped web page likes the look of a few and asked his web designer to look at what's out there and create something for him, all his designers done is in our eyes copy someone's home work and say its there own. It's obviously copied pity really nothing wrong with the idea of getting ideas from other websites but the copy'n'paste creation is obviously not been thought out.

    Leave it there I guess and hope that the 786 business corrects it's mistake ASAP.
