Prevent your Blog Post contents from being copied
There are thousands of people who try to make some money through Blogs and instead making it unique and of their own they just try to fool by copying someone else’s post to their own blog. They really don’t understand that they are making a complete joke out of themselves, but are also damaging their own success.
Basically such works are done by amateur, unprofessional and naive bloggers. It is quite simple to understand that they are beginners since they do a complete copy paste job instead of copying the contents from RSS feed.
If anyone gives a link which directs to your site after they have copied a single paragraph then it is fine. In case, instead of doing that if someone copies the whole post from your blog then you can do something really worse to that blogger. If the other bloggers would use the content as reference and then write a post around it, that wouldn’t be a problem, but the problem is these naive bloggers go about it the other way around. They copy and paste the complete content, without changing a single word ! What they do not understand is, such an act will not fetch any benefit for them in the long run! Always remember to be gentle and polite whenever you are going to ruin their account.
As a first warning, mail a letter to that blogger requesting to remove that copies posts. Then you should wait for a week. After a week check whether the Blogger accepted your request and did what you have told him to do. If yes then your mission is accomplished else you have to hold your patience and write another but last letter to that Blogger. This time you should be little rude and threat that person by mentioning that you will take possible steps to ban his account for ever.
Hold your patience for the last time and wait for another week. Basically the second mail works most of the time as they don’t try to mess it up. Check whether the Blogger has erased the copied content or not. If not then it’s time for real actions.
Now you have two options to destroy the fraud’s account for ever either by banning his Adsense ID or by removing his blog from all the search engines.
Steps that should be taken officially:
1> Report to Google Spam: Since we all are aware of the fact that Google is mother of search engines so it is best to take him out from Google. It is done by a simple process. You need to fill up some boxes and send to Google. Within less than a month the indexed page will be deleted. Without any traffic the value of the blog will be Zero.
2> Report to Yahoo! Spam: yahoo ranks two, holding a strong position after Google. So you can also report to Yahoo team as they take serious actions against these things. If you aren’t a Yahoo user then you need to open an account to report for this issue.
3> Adsense Team: It is a major step to take since most of the bloggers have become bloggers to earn money from their Blog Post. If you report to Google Adsense then their dreams will drown like anything. Google pays the highest money for any Blogs and it is one of the finest Adsense programs.
4> Issue Report to Blogger: If the blog is a blogspot, then you can remove that blog just by reporting to blogger. There are two ways to block that blog. One, you can turn on the never flag option of that blog. Second, you can also follow the link to report as spam
These are some of the necessary steps that SHOULD be taken. It is not necessary that you report only to the above mentioned search engines while you can report the copied blog as spam to as many as you can. The most important thing is that you should not keep quite if your posts have been copied and you have all the rights to teach lessons to copycats.
