ExpiredDomainListing.com Seems to Be Stealing All Our Blog Posts – Domain Bloggers Take Note

There’s a new blog in town, ExpiredDomainListing.com, and it looks like they are taking the Domaining.com feed and putting it on their site claiming to be the author. I found one of my posts on there today with no attribution along with just about every other blogger on Domaining.com.

ExpiredDomainListing.com

When I clicked on their Twitter link it goes to the Go Daddy twitter page and same for the Facebook link. I sent the owner a nice email today (actually nice, I’m not being sarcastic) asking him to remove my content from his site.

I thought I would let the community know. I don’t see any harm being done and assume it’s an honest mistake because, well, I just don’t like to pick fights with people, life it too short so I’ll assume it’s some kid who’s just trying to setup a blog for him or herself.

That being said I’m pretty sure that none of us want someone else taking credit for our blog posts and creating duplicate content out there.

    Morgan,

    I agree, I see no harm done if the other publisher / blog owner gives credit to the original author leading people back to your blog or the blog originating the content, but in this case as you stated there is no credit given to the original authors. I see a lot of sites with domain news like the site mentioned here, but most of the sites I see give credit to the original publishers and authors. Hopefully the owner of this blog will do what’s right and remove the content, or give credit to the authors for their work.

    It seems that they are using RSS Poster PRO plugin to automatically grab the content from RSS feeds and then post on the site.

    The site looks to be a piece-o’-crap autoblog, probably one of 100’s under command of the dirtbag. Sadly, your post raising this issue of plagiarism is probably going to send the the son of a bitch more traffic than he’d “normally” get in 6 months.
