Web scraping steals your content, claims it is their own, and sometimes there is no way of proving otherwise. These 4 Wordpress plugins prevent it.
Jamie Simmerman's insight:
Content scraping is NOT the same as curation. Curation is selectively choosing content that is relevant to your business or audience, and sharing that content (usually along with your two cents).
Content scrapers are the bane of the Internet. They throw up a website, scrap content from anywhere they can get it to collect keywords and topics of interest without investing in creating any value for readers, and they cash in the traffic through advertising, AdWrods, or affiliate links. Hundreds of these crap websites pop up every week, and they steal legitimate content for their own gain.
