Someone is Using My Content

Have you spotted your blog content on someone else's blog and feeling a bit ripped off? Usually you have found out about this because of a back link that has come up on your site telling you that there is a link back to your article.

Maybe your upset that someone has posted the content you have poured over to create. You did the work to post to your audience so why should just anyone be able to use it.

The glass is half full

If the post has your name on it and a link back to the article your a winner.

You now have your work in front of a bigger audience, you have a back link that Google will give you a credit for, and if the site that is re-posting it has a good page rank, you benefit even more.

If you guest post on another blog it is exactly the same situation, you don’t do a guest post because you love writing for other peoples blogs, you so it because you want to raise awareness about your blog, raise your page rank and increase your audience.

So don’t take the attitude that your being plagiarised and the world (or just that blog) is out to rip you off, it’s probably just that someone thinks your worth telling their audience about and your article is worth a read.

On the other hand if your not getting the credit, kick up a stink but in most cases the credit is there.

Contact the owner of the blog and see if they will enhance the author section with the information you want about you and make sure you have a Gravatar linked to your email address, you can at least have your picture up there without any effort.

After all we all want to build an audience and of someone thinks your worth talking about, you must be doing something right.

If you think I am right or wrong, hit the comment section and vent your spleen
