Splogs

or Spam Blogs. If you’ve been blogging for a while, you’ve encountered one. Where someone “scrapes” content from your site – your copyrighted content – and pastes it on their spam blog and links back to you. Men with Pens has a good article about this, and better than explaining how it works, they offer up a solution for how to deal with them. I, for one, am going to try their solution.

  1. Glad we could help. I’ve had some action from a few hosts that I’ve contacted with just a brief email. Others? Good luck. Time for a DMCA.

    Thanks for the linkage!

  3. I get those constantly, and I can’t decide whether to do anything about them. Please let us know if you see results.

  4. @Wendy, MB: I’ll let you guys know what I find out. I have to look at my Akismet and stats though. Haven’t had time to look lately.
