Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Content Theft (and What You Can do About It)

on February 17, 2014 in Blog Posts

Today Kathryn Aragon was kind enough to host a guest post from me about content theft. In it, I explain:

  • Why freelance writers and bloggers shouldn't ignore it (and why you're crazy if you think those "free backlinks" are a good thing);
  • How you can track down information about even the most anonymous content thieves;
  • What you can do to have your stolen content removed and hit scrapers where it really hurts (hint: it doesn't involve hiring lawyers).

Learn more. Read the post.

      Thank you so much Kathryn. I appreciate that. And thanks again for hosting the post. If it helps even one person knock down a scraper site, I’ll be thrilled. :)
