Someone steals my content and uses my adsense code

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by PHIL BADER, Jul 28, 2007.

    I own a soccer site. I use the Google Adsense plugin (For wordpress). After the end of each article, I put the adsense code.
    SEMrush
    An assho**l uses my feed to get my unique articles on his soccer site, and therefore, my google ads shows on his pages. I'm just worried that he does stuff on his site that violates Google Adsense TOS and I get banned.
    i search for a contact form on his site and I couldn't find it, no e-mail as well

    this is his damn site : http://real-madrid-news.com

    He is stealing my content and also wants to get my adsense account banned.

    What I gotta do guys ?

    Thanks

    That's why I have the <more> operand after the first phrase in my posts. when they steal my RSS, they only get the first sentence. :)

    As dan already stated if you use the <!--more--> command when posting article - it will force the reader to click the link to read the full article.

    Just add it after the first sentence or paragraph.

    I would also contact Google too, just to ensure they are aware of the situation.

    A little off topic, but using the <!--more--> button will also help reduce duplicate content. WordPress is full of stuff that grinds out dup content.

    Lol.. If the person who stole your content is doing nothing against the adsense TOS u will be making more money through adsense :D, but I would still contact google just in case.

    I use the more tag and also this:

    login to WP and click on OPTIONS
    click on READING
    then go to SYNDICATION FEEDS
    tick off SUMMARY

    Don't let them take the Full Text. I've been told it might be redundant to use both the more tag and check off summary but I am not sure.

    earning a few extra dollars now is not worth risking your adsense account...

    Have you tried just telling him to stop?

    Seems stupid, but actually works.

    John Chow uses a plugin which you can add text to RSS feeds saying the content is stolen unless you are reading it from an RSS reader and to contact him.

    Regarding the code, are you sure it's the same PID as your adsense account? Each time this happens to one of my sites they just steal the actual content from an rss feed, but do not use my adsense ID.

    I already use the more tag, however, I use another plugin that produce a full rss feed, as I hate to force my readers to come to my site instead of reading full articles from my RSS.

    I use that plugin too, but he is an idiot and won't stop.

    Yes, the ads are mine with my publisher id
