...we get a low cost $5 gig at a project site and we blast the scaper URL's with 30,000 xrumer links, or 25,000 SENuke comments, etc etc.
1) Do you blast the home page of the site? Or do you blast the specific page that is using your content? Because if you blast the specific page that is using your content, then it would probably be easy for the scraper site to figure out who did the blast.
2) Does it have to be a specific type of anchor text? (I.e., an exact match keyword?)
3) Also, how long does something like this need to take effect?
4) And finally, have you ever done it on a LEGITIMATE site (like an amazon page or an ebay page or an ehow page)? I find that these are the types of sties that are "borrowing" my content without my permission. Heck, even wikipedia uses my content with only minimal rewording.
...the MFA site we helped Google locate was no longer ranking in 4-5 weeks.
it seems like there isn't an "automatic" penalty form all those link coming in
Your just sort of using the links to "point a spotlight" at the site
If our content is not down within 24 hours, we get a low cost $5 gig at a project site and we blast the scaper URL's with 30,000 xrumer links, or 25,000 SENuke comments, etc etc.
Google might be correct in saying that you cannot badly harm a quality site with low quality backlinks, I'm not sure, I would never use these on my own site... But I assure you, you can knock an MFA scraper site off the serps with very little effort, and $15-$20 worth of Xrumer and SENuke gigs.
Wikipedia on the other hand has almost verbatim copies of several of our pages from one of the sites we manage, and we've done nothing.
