Hungry? Here – have a feed
Yep, check it out. A mob called Web Propeller are scraping every single post I write on this blog, within an hour of me posting them. Compare my recent post to theirs. They’ve even stolen my image!
I feel a site scraping bastards Googlebomb coming on! Anyone care to help?
Funny – they have this post up there on their site But you are listed as a contributor. Maybe they should have a section for “unwilling, unwitting contibutors”.
@ Matt and Dani – bwa ha haaaa. That’s right, my plan worked. Looks like I’ve found my Dumbass of the Week!
Hey Kalena I wrote a review of this post and submitted it to stumble upon (one of my favorite sites). I’m actually one or your students and am still learning, but I’d be glad to help in your googlebombing efforts (if you tell can tell me how to do that…LOL). Anyhow, I admire your wit and humor. Thanks a lot for the laugh! Bill
[…] brouhaha started when Kalena used her blog to expose a scraper. The industry joke is that this usually leads to the scraper posting on their own site the negative […]
Have you seen the little apology note that is up on the site now? Apparently it was a “fictional test” to see how easy it is to get to the top of Google.
“Testing” doesn’t give you the right to infringe copyright. They should come clean on who they are.
Surely they would be spat at by the SEs for using dupe content anwyay? Regardless, your site is great, their site is not. The End.
