Web scraping steals your content, claims it is their own, and sometimes there is no way of proving otherwise. These 4 WordPress plugins prevent it.
Content scraping is NOT the same as curation. Curation is selectively choosing content that is relevant to your business or audience, and sharing that content (usually along with your two cents).
Content scrapers are the bane of the Internet. They throw up a website, scrap content from anywhere they can get it to collect keywords and topics of interest without investing in creating any value for readers, and they cash in the traffic through advertising, AdWrods, or affiliate links. Hundreds of these crap websites pop up every week, and they steal legitimate content for their own gain.
Link love is about finding something of value on the Net and sharing it with others, not sticking yoru hand in the candy jar and stuffing yoru pockets with whatever you can pull out.
Ann Smarty shares four WordPress plugins to help stop content scrapers form using your original content to further their sleazy efforts. Try our one, or better yet, all of them, if you’re running on a WordPress platform.
