If you’re a blogger, your site most likely has an RSS feed (if I’ve lost you already, go to this post to find out what I’m typing about here).
One of the most annoying ways that some unethical people grab content is to take your RSS feed and set it up to publish directly into their blog. It requires barely any work on their part, and then every single post from your blog shows up on theirs right after you publish it.
One way to discourage it is to add a footer to every post in your RSS feed with a plugin like RSS Footer.
Here’s an example of what shows up with my RSS feed. It lets people know that if they’re reading it anywhere other than MichelleShaeffer.com that the content has been taken without my permission.
You could also use this RSS footer to promote your ezine, products, or services and get some bonus marketing points in there. It’s a great little plugin.
