Hi Cosmin,

I really don’t think you can report google analytics code abuse, but you can use the google analytics filter to create a custom filter then set the hostname as your domain name.

You could still create a new code but that would mean losing all previous analytics.

regards, Joel

Thank you, I will use a filter at least until I find a permanent solution (maybe a DMCA…) :(

Hi guys, can anyone tell me if I can report a website that’s using my Analytics code/ID to Google?

More details:

One of my old templates that was available on ThemeForest a while ago is being used on a pretty big website, BUT, the template wasn’t purchased instead they just downloaded the preview and are using it with my Analytics code in it…

I’ve contacted the owners of that website more than a few times, using every email address I could find on their website and I haven’t received a reply.

Is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks,

Cosmin

Contact support, give them the URL to your template/review and explain the situation. It’s clearly his fault not yours and maybe they will do something about it. Unfortunately this happens too often, and there’s not much you can do about it as an author… :)

I don’t see why not, as long as you don’t use the same license for two websites.

It’s a pretty expensive bluetooth keyboard, but a high quality one ;)

Chrome now, for everything.

Before I started using Chrome I was using Firefox + Firebug.

Don’t panic. It’s a normal practice to posts comments and i personally like when somebody write me GLWS..)

No panic here :P

A long time ago it was even worse, on “FlashDen”! :D

At least some of those guys moved to the forums and started posting about marriage issues, and love problems. :bigevilgrin:

I don’t think Envato will intervene, I mean you can’t judge what one’s thinking even though it might look kinda spammy. People would say I like that item and I’ll comment, you can’t tell them to like only 5 items a day. :D

That’s true, you can’t set a limit, or call it spam if they comment on 5 items, but it becomes obvious when someone posts the same comment on 50 items.

Look at it from a buyer’s perspective, they check the comments and see 10 random guys saying how great that item is, nothing strange so far, but then they check another item and see the same guys saying the same thing, now that’s a little “fishy”... and then they look at other items and see the same thing…

New buyers won’t know if those authors are just trying to get some exposure or if those are false “reviews” that promote the item (they won’t look for the “purchased” label…).

If the comments are honest it does show that a new item is good, and people like it and appreciate the hard work that went into creating it.

But if you see the same comments on every item, from the same guys, then what’s the point?
