Feed submission and Duplicate content

Hi all,

I currently submitted my site feed to a dirty feed site.

They automatically generated my site content, and put up on their own URLs with my content, and more terrible is that they nofollow my organic content URLs.

So. I may get duplication trouble when my site is not strong as theirs.

Well, I think that I will get rid of feed submission from now on, it is so doggy.

Please prove me wrong.


P.S: Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Is there any way to change the feed url so that the mentioned doggy feed generator can not steal my content?

Just ban that ip address. If you have controll of how your feed stuff is being generated, another way to mess it up it to use a feed service like feedburner.

The "doggy" site won't be able to pick up the XML anymore.

Thank you for your reply. This doggy site has stolen almost all of my hard-work content, get indexed by Google, then outrank my site. It s*ck. I am sorry.

I get rid of Feed now, I found no good but bad. I have create a /feed/ folder there, then put an index.html file there. Hope it prevented content from automatically eaten by the feed dogs.

Thanks for the idea, I too have created those folders. In my case, I'd rather people not see the feed, for now.
