I was recently looking at the existing backlinks of a client for whom I am about to design a new website and I found that a porn site had taken one of her blog posts and embedded it in their site. The link was 'nofollow' but if someone was on their site and saw my client's blog article and clicked the link they went to another web page. I have to add that my client has no associated or adult content on their site. The porn site had also done the same with other sites - some of whom were child related. All of the imported blog posts had one word in common (a girl's name), other than that they were unrelated.
Is there anyway to stop this or anyone that my client could make a complaint to?
Sorry if this is not the correct forum for this post.

Nevertheless, regarding SEO or negative effects like penalties from Google, you should not worry about it if we are talking just about one or a few "bad neighbourhood" links. There is certainly also the possibility to get in touch with Google Search team but.

Are you the owner of these wedding and photographer sites?
I like them. Regards

Hi, Thanks for your reply. I'll pass it on to my client. I think she will be writing to the website owner, and she is contacting the other photographers who have also been hit by this. I am just fuming that they have used sites aimed at children in this way.
p.s. I am just the web developer of the sites you mentioned :)

Nevertheless, the sites are quite nice.

Good luck
