I Smell A Splog – Ideahustle.com


As Keith found his feeds republished last week, I’ve found the same this week with ideahustle.com. Not only is my kenmc.com feed appearing (with trackbacks on all posts made thus far in the week) but so to is my KilkennyMusic.com feed and Devious Theatre feed.

Would Ideahustle republish a feed that has me criticise whoever is behind the adsense heavy blog? It looks to be a wordpress mu installation using ripped feeds to populate a wide variety of blogs. No link from me but check ideahustle.com for yourself.

    Along the same lines I recently found a site sports.ie using content from my hurlingblog.com, with no clear attribution and having never asked for it. They basically give the impression that the content is theirs. the offending site uses a lot of ads so its clearly commerical in some sense.

    what can you do about sites like this?

    I’m not sure to be honest, barring sending complaint emails, requesting feed removal or further to that maybe taking it to the hosts.
