Hello,

I just started my hosting site about maybe going on 2 weeks now and I noticed that 2 coupon sites already have my site listed with the coupon code that I am offering.

How are they able to do this? also are they getting paid in anyway? Also could it be that they get paid from the MASTER host?

They get the information from various forums and websites where you have posted the coupons and offers. I don't think they are harmful.

Scraping (as suggested by Calvin) is common and shouldn't be too much of a concern. It's in their interest to find those coupons so they can drive traffic to their site so they can sell advertising.

Fingers crossed that it might lead to a sale for you.

Agreed, so long as the advertising on their site doesn't draw negative attention from Google, putting you in a bad neighborhood.
