This short blurb is for all of my hard-working fellow bloggers out there who get their content stolen or scraped by black hat bloggers who can’t write for themselves.
Interestingly, I have found in life that individuals who do not want to work hard for a living, work harder trying to avoid work than they do if they just did the work.
That being said, I would like to point out that is you submit your article to article directories, this does not apply to your because once you submit any article to an article directory, you are giving the directory and visitors full re-publishing rights to your content PROVIDED they keep the resource links in tact.
However, if you are a blogger and you have not submitted your content to any article directories and yet you still find it sitting on someone else’s website word for word, then you can turn up the heat more than they ever thought possible as they we coding their scraper…LOL!
Google, the only search engine that matters, has provided a nifty little reporting tool that allows webmasters to notify the index when content has been stolen or scraped without approval of the original author.
If you suspect or know that your content has been republished in some way WITHOUT your approval, simply submit a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice with Google itself.
You can do that here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/dmca-dashboard?hl=en
I have only one thing to say. This works. This tools will send non-approved scrapers and thieves running and squealing like a pig that was just popped on the rear with a wet towel.
In the end it’s all about keeping your site content as unique as possible. Not everybody syndicates and for those who don’t we want to make sure that our site is the only place that Google can send visitor for it.
So if you need to, pull out the big guns and don’t be afraid to use it.
