  1. With having so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagiarism or copyright infringement? My SEO blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over Google and the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    1. Hi Christian unfortunately, the web is filled with hundreds of thousands maybe even millions of unscrupulous websites whose business and traffic models depend on stealing content off other websites and re using the content on their own domains. Its called “scraping,” and sometimes the scrapers make good earnings by outranking sites for their own content and displaying ads or using affiliates. Most of these guys are lazy and copy your source code and don’t check the links so what you can do is instead of placing links like this code> <a href=”./>Home</a> you could do this <a href="http://www.2createawebsites.com/>Home</a> This way, when a scraper picks up and copies the content, the link remains pointing to your site, indicating that your source is probably the originator, and at least you will get some free backlinks.

      When you publish content in any type of feed format make sure to ping the major blogging/tracking services. Use Pingomatic to automate the process. Once your content is indexed first you your site should get the credit for the content, and sites that copy the content hopefully will get penalized.

      Sign up to Google+ and make sure you do Google Authorship, this way Google will know that the content on your site belongs to you as you are the author once its indexed by Google. Anyone that copy’s it won’t get the credit or ranking. Here is another good article you might want to read – Four ways to enforce your copyright what to do when your online content is being stolen
