Andy Hagans Explains Why Are People Stealing Your Content
Since I don’t know any Splog owners I felt lost as to why they were doing it.
That seemed kind of weird to me so I went to my resident SEO expert Andy Hagans to get the real deal.
They dont do it to increase pagerank — they do it to have ‘spider food’ for the SEs. basically if you have 100,000 pages, each of which has 2000 words of content (say, 100 word snippets from 20 different web sites), those pages (even with very little pagerank) will show up for REALLY longtail/obscure queries…. add Adsense and voila instant profit… although Google is getting better at nuking these… even so, you can make one a day and who cares if they get nuked after 14 days?
this type of situation is a bit more rare than the above http://www.chessninja.com/dailydirt/archives/baron_turner_is_stealing_my_blog.htm even then the point isnt to get ‘page rank’, the point is to get free se traffic and monetize it.–Andy Hagans
Thanks Andy. Now if you could just tell me how to stop it…
