I saw this in the newest plugins feed from wordpress WordPress › Houdini WordPress Plugins You might wanna check that out..
I don't think it will help much with bot based scrapers though but you never know.
I swear that content scrapers never learn. This one goes far beyond anything I've seen.
Everyone here is pretty familiar with my blog located at:
Make Money Online | Running Online Business
Take a hard look at it.
Examine the list of categories on the lower right side, look at some of the post titles.
Now, take a look here:
See any similarities? Of course you do! They replicated my blog and it's content! They even went so far as to download images I used in posts, as well as files I made available for download, and put them on their blog using file hosting sites like mediafire and rapidshare. Did they change the content? At least try to hide it? Nope. It's an exact replica.
So, what did I do? Well, I filed a DMCA Notice with Blogger, of course. I'm sure the infringing content will be removed shortly. "Thanks for reporting this possible Terms of Service violation. We will examine it soon and take action as necessary." But what would make a person think that they could get away with just copying my entire blog?
Sometimes the stupidity of people astounds me.
Kovich are you surprise?
One time I found one of my entire article duplicated on a Yahoo blog or personal page. I asked kindly to the person to remove the article and did not have any answer, then take it down by DMCA.
The funny thing is that the person duplicated my article with the internal links lol
Anyway I hope they will fix the scrap problem for you asap.
As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress.
I love when content thieves leave internal links in-tact. =P It's always quite funny.The funny thing is that the person duplicated my article with the internal links lol
Thanks. Me too.Anyway I hope they will fix the scrap problem for you asap.
Plus, can't it be circumvented by just copying the text from the source code?
Because I am a newbie, I am proud if someone copy my articles on his blog. They only copying high quality content
