I’m looking for someone who can answer the following questions.
1. What is the term for a blog taking word-for-word content from your post and reposting it on a blog without giving you credit? I’m not going to give links to the places where this has happened, because all you really get is my posts with lots of adsense surrounding them. They do link back to me but the way they do it is sneaky. They sign the posts with their name, but then the link on the user name is a link to the original post. Someone is definitely trying to cash in on the serendipitous Google juice I’ve generated with original content about the Zune and believe it or not Erin Andrews and Bret Bielema.
2. Is there a way to detect this?
3. Is there a way to prevent this?
4. Do I have any right to my own content?
If anyone is smart or blog savvy enough to answer, send me an email at matt[at]mkinmotion[dot]com.
