|Stealing is not so 'charmi'ng and it is not 'cool'!!|
If you are a blogger and if you have a post which attracts a lot of traffic,then you should be aware of blog thieves who might steal your blog posts or website content word-by-word.That too without giving you any credit.So i'm going to tell you how to deal with it.Some may suggest to blocking the 'right-click' option in the blog page.But i can't agree with this.
I'm writing it from my personal experience.I have written a post about how to install whatsapp in Nokia Asha 200.And my blog was getting pretty good traffic too.But all of a sudden web traffic started to drop.After doing a little bit investigation,i found out that my blog post was stolen by a user who also happens to be the first person to post a comment and ask a doubt (Her comment is still there).My post was copied word-by-word.I don't know how many people knows that if there is an exact word-by-word copy of an article some where else,Google search engine consider your original post and the stolen material as less important.Gradually your post will stop to show up in Google searches.
After doing some googling i found out that we can report the stealing to blogger.com and Google.And i did it.Hopefully they will take the action very soon.Now let me teach you how to report to blogger.com or google.com about your stolen blog post.
Reporting alleged copyright infringement is very easy.But before that you have to be sure that your content or post was posted first.Not the other way.If you have stolen someone else' blog post and report it as if you are the original author,then your blogger account might get banned or Google will take legal actions against you.
All you have to do is fill up this form -- GOOGLE DMCA : Blogger
- Type in your first and last name in the first box.
- Type your blog name as 'company name in the second box if you want(not mandatory).
- Enter the full name of you in the next box(if you own the blog).
- Enter your gmail id in next box.
- Select your country.
- Paste the URL of your original post in the next box.
- Fill up the second box by describing what has been stolen and who did it.If it is word-by-word you can write about that.
- Copy the URL of the duplicate post from the thief's blog and paste it to the next box.
- Check next two boxes to agree with their terms.
- Enter the present date in the next box.
