Hi guys. I have an issue with one of my websites that I am sure others have experienced, and want to know if there might be a good (better) way to handle it.
Currently, my website exports in RSS format, every post that I create.
I am noticing that other websites get my content via rss, and then post a snippet of the article on their website, then link to me. The problem is that their website sometimes gets cached first, and then it would seem Google thinks they are the originator of the content, and then my article has a more difficult time getting indexed at all.
Is there any way around this, save for disabling RSS feeds altogether?

Yes, disabling your syndication feed will stop all those who take your post and republish it on their website. Generally speaking, a high PR website will get more pages indexed and faster. A low PR website may not even be indexed and will appear lower in search results. Sad; isn't it?
