Fighting Scrapers

Posted on 2.12.2007
Brad Geddes of eWhisper.net has an excellent post on how to fight back against content scraping. While there is no definitive way to keep your feeds (content) from being scraped, what you are able to do is make it work for you by forcing the scrapers to credit (and source) your content. Some of the suggestions include hyperlinking your name (or maybe company name) to your about page, including a link to  one or tow of your other posts in the body of the entry. There are some other good tips including using absolute URLs which is always a smart idea. Read the entire post over at eWhisper.
