Learn To Love RSS Scrapers – I Do!

* posts may contain affiliate links - what does that mean?

Thinking About Starting Your OWN Blog? If YOU'D like to learn how to make money blogging with affiliate marketing like I do, feel free to read my Free Blogging 101 E-Course here.

It is VERY common today for entire sites to built with the content found within RSS feeds from sites all over the net. In fact, there are tons of ‘automatic’ website builders that allow you to choose a keyword or two, press a button, and PRESTO – a complete website built on RSS feeds. While that may all be well and good (or not), there is another side to that story. What about the blogger who just had their post scraped to build that site?

I do a good bit to keep an eye on this blog. Like many of y’all, I work hard on my content and posts. There is nothing recycled here – it is all the unique musing and insights from inside THIS odd little brain =)

When I used to find sites that completely copied/scraped a post of mine, it used to drive me insane. There is always a chance that another site can rank higher with my content than I do…and get me dumped down to the ‘we have omitted results’ filter area on a Google search.

If you’re a WordPress blogger, what can you do about it tho?

Making Scrapers Your Friends

I found a wonderful little plug in that has helped make RSS scrapers into my content syndication team. It’s very simple to install and use, and it doesn’t interfere with the readers experience at all.

Yesterday, I found this post of mine on the internet. Now, I am not posting a direct link to it, but you can find it here:

Take a good look… it is a complete RSS scrape of my original review post for SquidooCashMachine.com. Yes, they kept the links and didn’t strip the HTML, but the links are the same color as the text…

You’d think that made me mad, right? Wrong! I love when these little sites grab my stuff now.

Scroll on down to the end…

New Squidoo Marketing Guide – SquidooCashMachine.com Review

There is a link back to my blog AND to the original post. That is done with this simple little WP plug in. By using this, I am claiming ‘ownership’ of my content and the original location where it belongs. IF/when Google reads that scraped post, they will see it.

RSS Footer WordPress Plug-In

The free little plug in is called RSS Footer and can be found here. Simply download, extract and then upload to your plug ins folder. Go into your admin area and activate it. Then simply set the two fields to do what you want them to do.

This footer only shows on full RSS feeds of your posts, but not on the posts themselves. It is a great little plug in that gives you just that little piece of mind of one less thing to worry about.

Check out RSS Footer.
