Stolen Content

Checking my Akismet queue, I found several trackbacks from spam blogs scraping and reposting my content. They all seem to be using the same template, usually starting with “(some blog name) wrote an interesting post today…”, always giving it some random name linked to my blog.

I don’t mind my feed being included in an aggregator, but this is pure content theft.

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had this issue but can definitely relate. It usually is pretty easy to get these sites shut down if you want to. I’ll gladly help you with that if you want, just send me an email with the links to the sites and I’ll see what your options are (please don’t post them here, no love for the spammers).

    Let me know if I can help!
