OK, my content has been blantantly stolen and placed on this persons blog - they are claiming that it is theirs.
I rank very well for that particular post. I knew this day would come so I planted a link in the copy back to me - and this guy is such an idiot that he didnt check so he sends me traffic!
My questions please!
Do you reckon that SE's will see that as weird that he has the duplicate content on his blog - but - that it links back to me? Could that be a good thing for me?
What would you do reference to contacting this guy? My hunch is to ignore him b/c if I "complain" he will check me out further and realize that my content is kick-ass and steal more and more. My hunch is just to NOT contact him.
And now my real basic simple Top Tip!! Do what I did and place a link to your own site (maybe even a deep link) in EVERY blog post so when people like this genius simply copy and paste they do so w/out noticing.
Fact is that whatever you place online is basically stolen. Period. Everything is a product of everything else.
Here is another thought: write blog posts very much like they are personal - kinda obvious but if your style of writing is so unqiue, i.e. constantly referring to resources on your site and mentioning your site's name can surely deter the thief b/c its makes their blog look ridicolous.
Anyways - id be interested to hear your thoughts.
