Well.. I have a news site that is pretty active, so I cannot track every post I make (there are 10/15 posts per day) - but I did notice recently that I'm being outranked by scrapers.
The weird (and very upsetting) thing is, that they outrank me with my 0 content feed. Only the title is enough.
I found a post of mine was not even appearing in google - even if it has 500+ words (original content) - but the scraper got 1st place with MY title, and just one line I add to my feed that says something lile "this was posted by url.com"
I cannot believe it! Such was my rage, that I completely deleted my Feedburner feed with LOTS of readers. Changed all my feeds so I can have control and ban IPs - and I'm even considering not using RSS feeds anymore.
And this is a question I cannot answer for myself, cause I'm not an expert: are RSS feed any good today? From a SEO perspective, are they?
They bring only trouble :( and even if I have a news site and rss feeds are useful for users, it is really discouraging seeing these kind of problems.
Please bear my English :)
