How to Kick the Ass of your Image/Content Thief on Blogger and Wordpress
I understand it when some bloggers grab contents from other website (with credit to the original source) to populate their blog and keep it active or grab a few lines from a rich content (in form of quote) to explain or lay emphasis on a subject.
I personally do not share interest on the method of which a blogger populate his/her (will be referred to as him in the remaining section of this post) blog, that’s what Google does right? However, copying my content and images with no link or credit pointing to the original source is where I come in.
Just recently, I wrote an article about sticking any web page element/widget on scroll only to find a duplicate of this article on another website. “There is absolutely no need to panic” I said to myself, expecting a big credit to my good work, only to be left disappointed when I couldn’t find any. Good thing I was blogging on the Blogger platform so I kicked his ass and kicked it real bad.
If you are in same situation and your blog is powered by Blogger or WordPress, don’t waste your time telling Google about this or filing a DMCA report. Just cool off, lets show this guy who the boss is.
