Bloggers Call Out Content Theft

Let me start out by saying this is not found in a particular forum, it was not inspired by a forum post, it is not even directly SEO related. But there is a serious issue out there for bloggers. It is a site at http://ambiraj.blogspot.com/ which daily steals content from this site, and dozens of other sites, with no link back. InsideGoogle said, Rajesh, You’re Messing With The Wrong People noting that Randy Charles Morin took note of this and is now reporting it to the higher forces.

We should all report this person. I flagged the site over and over again for months, and nothing has been done. I believe I even emailed people about it. It is sad, they copy content from here, SEW, GoogleBlogoscoped, BL Ochman, SteveRubel, InsideGoogle, and many others.

Even if he did add links, its still wrong.

This guy obviously just does that so he can have visitors who click on his ads, I think Google should be informed of this problem.

I have quite a few sites that steal my content using RSS feeds. The major one is seo-news-articles.b-1st.com I have written plenty of e-mails with no responses, I have posted on forums trying to make an issue noticeable, I have posted a Google spam report. So far, no results. consequence, I was forced to truncate my feed and offer only a content summary, something I hated to do since I believe full post RSS feeds should be offered. I am currently at a loss as to what to do since every day there are more and more scraper-type sites clogging the Web with no easy way to combat them.

Rasjeh's blog went 404, three hours after my post on InsideGoogle. 'V' is for victory. :)
