Do you know who has copied content from your site to theirs?
I’m flattered when other web sites copy snippets of my content, as long as they provide a link back to my source page.
Charles Caleb Colton, an English Writer from the early 1800’s, said:
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”
This sentiment is even more relevant in today’s WWW-arena. But how many times has somebody copied your site content without you knowing?
If they provide a link-back to your source site, then you probably received the ping-back. But what happens if they’ve “imitated” you – and not linked back to your source content?
