Have your articles been reblogged?
Are you aware of the copyright rules here on p.com?
You know that using ads on a site makes that site ‘commercial’?
Stop automatic reblogging of your articles!
Or better: Go ahead and tell Google to stop indexing those sites.
Today I was alerted that my name is showing up on some website. I checked the page and could see that my p.com feed is reblogged. Some others, like Darren Rowse are also hit.
- The site: article words .com
- The issue narrowed in : Google Blog Search (GBS) BlogBridge to monitor my name and links to my sites. Those search feeds show up in a guide called ‘MM Blogs’ and give me an immediate feedback. BlogBridge offers so called ‘smart searches’ which make it very easy to get those results. In other feed readers you will have to set up those searches by copying & pasting the appropriate RSS sources.
It is no big deal to set up such an automatic monitoring to search for good or bad usage of your content!
I simply sent the above GBS address and search term to make them aware of the website. A stronger weapon would be to file an AdSense DMCA Complaint.
This is a reminder to follow your traces, may they be good or bad…
