I just got finished with my rant on Search Marketing Weasels who steal, regurgitate, and republish content, giving no benefit to those they stole from.
No sooner had I sent the weasels an email than I ran across another one of my articles on another site.
This article was published via several article distribution outlets, so technically, it’s not stealing to republish it. In fact, that is encouraged. But the difference here is that they published the ENTIRE article verbatim including the bio and the links back to our sites.
If nothing else, I get the link benefit. The comments are suspicious. Probably all fabricated, but hey, they got the important thing right!
