Blog entry plagiarism
Posted November 1, 2016on:
I hope that a particular link does not work by the time you read this. Why? Every now and then someone will copy entire entries from my blog and paste it into their blog without acknowledgement or my permission.
How do I know this happens? Pingbacks.
On visiting that blog, I noticed that it harvested an assortment of posts probably in a bid to get attention, increase its search engine optimisation (SEO), and benefit from ad revenue.
I will be taking steps like contacting the owner to have the copied entry removed, asking Google to counter the copy’s SEO attempt, and notifying the copycat’s web host.
