Lately, I’ve been plagued by “blogs” that are picking up my content and presenting it as their own. In at least one case, the entire “blog” consisted of posts that were lifted from all of you fashion-blogging bitches. I recognized all the posts! That one was on WordPress. I reported it via this link and WordPress suspended that account immediately. Since then, I’ve had WordPress suspend two others.
To report a spam blog to WordPress, click here. I’ve been giving them the main spam blog URL, the URL of the stolen content and the URL of my original content for comparison. Obviously, the spammers will keep coming back in new forms, but I think we should give them as much grief as possible.
How can you find these spam blogs? Through your traffic stats, by Googling your name/the name of your blog and by Googling your blog URL.
Of course, due to WendyB’s Law of teh Interweb (under which only the innocent are proven guilty), I’ll probably be falsely accused once again. If that happens … well, it’s been nice knowing you!
UPDATED TO ADD: Comment moderation turned back on due to spam comments.
