    Web page hijacking is a form of search engine index spamming. It is done by creation a copy of a popular website which shows contents very similar to the original web pages. But it redirects you to the web that is unrelated to website. Web page hijacking is comes under black hat search engine optimization technique.

    Most of the cases happens when the can easily decode the server password and inject the index pages of your website. People who are not familiar with the hosting thing often go believe that it is hijacked but actually it is just about putting up a targeted index file to your website.

    Webpage hijacking means someone steal your site by duplicating your template as well as copying all your content and put them on their own domain. It will steal way your readers and the template they try to duplicate usually don't work well and look nice. They may also add to the insult by including spam content such as porn along with your content on the mirrored site.

    Webpage hijacking is mostly used back-hat technique , while many people don't know what they are doing and what's their effect in website. Some website designer company's while making or developing a website they copy any webpages that they need do some small changes in their site and also put all content as it is.

    It is like selling the Gucci watches in cents from some Chinese websites. People are smarter these days but yes i have received many e-mail that has a little changed with name but similar design and concept like logo, etc, to fool around people. Must it be used by scammers for frauds?

    Page hijacking is a technical form of redirecting Web traffic that exploits certain glitches in search engines. Page hijacking involves creating a site that roughly duplicates the content of an existing site, then games search engine ranking systems to make sure that the second, duplicated site gets more recognition than the original. The goal in page hijacking is to make the second page more prominent than the first.

    Simply put it is creating a site that duplicates the content of an existing site, and tricking search engines to think that the dupilcate one is original. Overall it is another form of spamming. Typically used in Black Hat SEO.

    page hijacking is replicating a prominent Web page from its original site to a third-party site with the goal that it moves toward becoming listed via web search tools. After the connections have been built up, the substance of the page is changed to mirror its genuine reason, or it might divert the client to an alternate site.

    Page Hijacking is a form of search engine index spamming. It is done by creating a rogue copy of a popular website which shows contents that is similar to the original web crawler; but it redirects the web surfers to unrelated or malicious websites.

    Less often, page hijacking can also refer to when the owner or creator of a page loses control of that page, as in certain social media situations.
    Page hijacking may also be called 203 hijacking.

    I heard of an application that prevents spam attacks on Instagram account. Is there a web analogue, maybe a plugin to use?
