Web Scraping: 4 Wordpress Plugins To Prevent It

Web Scraping: 4 Wordpress Plugins To Prevent It | freelance copywriting | Scoop.it
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. 

 

Link love is about finding something of value on the Net and sharing it with others, not sticking yoru hand in the candy jar and stuffing yoru pockets with whatever you can pull out. 

 

Ann Smarty shares four WordPress plugins to help stop content scrapers form using your original content to further their sleazy efforts. Try our one, or better yet, all of them, if you're running on a WordPress platform.

Matt Cutts Talks Keyword Density

Matt Cutts Talks Keyword Density | freelance copywriting | Scoop.it
Jamie Simmerman's insight:

Keyword density SEO campaigns are bad for businesses.

 

There is no magic formula" for keyword density that will automatically get you to page one of the SERPS. If there was, every business website would use it and the whole thing would be useless. Common sense tells you that any SEO company who promises front page ranking is blowing hot air. 

 

If you want to boost your SEO, "don't annoy your readers" and write for your readers, not search engines. Natural, sioled keyword usage is best. It's organic, it can be tied into a PPC campaign, and it's what readers want. Don't overwhelm them by repeating the same phrase over and over just to hit a certain percentage number. 

 

Google wants to display results that are RELEVANT, so make your keywords and your content count.
