    Default Protection Against Content Thievery?

    It seems to be a annual rite of passage for me - a site redesign during the spring. This was more a complete overhaul.

    Since my last redesign, I have written quite a few gambling articles for the site. During a site review last year, someone asked how I was going to protect myself from content theifs.

    Is there anyway to really protect your own content?

    Yes, just to further Pam's point you can use Copyscape to check if your content has been duplicated elsewhere on the internet. Either certain pages or the entire site can be checked. There is a nominal charge for this.

    It is also good to add the copyscape logo to the footer of your site, with a message saying copyscape protected. However, scapers don't read too much so this wont deter them.

    If you do find a thief then your best plan to get them to take it down is to:

    1. Contact them direct, either through their site or though their whois
    2. Report it at the GPWA in the correct section
    3. Contact any affiliate programs that they are associated with

    Try each in turn and you should achieve removal.

    Too add I find checking out my backlinks very useful and submit duplicate copy complaints to the relative agencies.

    Since I have a gambling guide for sell on my site, I have found that some people are using frames to place my site on their sites. Would this be considered theft? How does search engines look at this stuff. Can it hurt my rankings?

    Thanks.
