    You got a reply?
    Most do not bother to answer any emails or pm's asking or telling them to remove the content.

    It is like, file a lawsuit idiot!
    Otherwise it all stays on the blog forever.

    I usually threaten to file a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) complaint. That usually gets the greasy little thieves to remove stolen content. Those complaints are now a factor in Google rankings, so they should be a more effective threat today.

    Good to know. The slimeballs that steal content are a pox, and they do not deserve to make a dime off someone elses work.

    Again, for autobloggers and especially those who write their own blogs....
    If there is a live link back to your site, why complain?

    It is those who do not link back that should die a slow death (or have to spend 6 months only on dp).

    The default feed setting on Wordpress blogs is full posts, so you are giving the green light to have your full posts republished if you leave this setting on rather than excerpts.

    Hasn't been a big problem for me. I could be publishing nuclear launch codes on my blog and they'd still be a closely held secret. Not unlike Google's TOS {or the guidelines for this forum}.

    From what I have seen, the majority of content thieves do not link back to my sites. I don't even think the majority of people who use Ezine Articles content bother to link back to the author's site, as the rules require.

    Just remember that linking back to a site where content has been stolen does not release anyone from copyright infringement.

    I think that it's very easy to write code to republish blog feed content to a site that may be more optimized than your blog. So I definitely recommend only publishing excerpts in feeds.

    p.s. must dash, need to register nuclearlaunchcodes.com

    Blogging is a great way to share knowledge and it is one of the efficient ways of internet marketing. It is still alive and always will be. It is a great place to get back links. It helps increase web traffic.

    General blog's are no longer ranking on 'long tail' keywords like they where in the past. This is due to the 'Mayday" update that effects long tail traffic which means that you will need authority links to rank.
