Stop Blog Content Theft: Splagiarism!

In pictures here is what happened:

1. I wrote a blog post called Earthquake Rocks Google Too.

2. I published the blog via WordPress.

3. A splog grabbed my content and scraped the first paragraph.

4. The splog then fed my content to both blog and search results.

5. My content was then displayed as the splog’s and in doing so denied my authorship and ownership rights to the blog post in both the same blog and search results.

6. I began a thread about this at WordPress forums and within three hours, WordPress, the WordPress Community and Google completely resolved the issue in the search results. Not so in the blog results as of yet.

Corrected Google Search Results



Thanks!
