Every day my Google alerts email me some new site that has scraped some of my content. At first I didn't know what the heck "content scrapers" were, but as I delve more into the world of black hat vs. white hat vs. grey hat SEO stuff, I'm learning.
But should I hate these automated computer guru genius creations that scrape my content and make a gazillion dollars in Google Adsense revenue off of hard-typing bloggers like me?
Or should I thank them (the ones that only scrape the first part of my content, give me my full byline, and link searchers back to my site, that is -- think I'll change my RSS feeds to partial content right now) for the extra exposure?
Am I being a fool for not hating these content-scraping guys so vehemently like others do? Or is that the reason that the Nirvana song that rhymes with "Scrape Me" keeps playing over and over again in my head?
