    I have the most popular blog in a certain niche, and there are only a handful of competitors. Not long ago, I started adding my posts to a blogging platform and having my posts redirect back to my site when they were clicked. Another member of the blogging platform noticed that it was an original he had made.

    I know that wasn't right, so I told my co-blogger no more posts are to be sourced, no matter how good they are. So we removed our 10 copyrighted posts out of 350 from our main blog.

    But the guy was still not satisfied. He reblogged our blog post of his original, and added something about not appreciating what we were doing. However, as a result, we have received a pleasant surge in traffic from what he did. Our adsense income has doubled.

    Good for you, that is rather funny. Sometimes it does not pay to be a butt about things, now does it?

    Oh wow. I have seen it happening from other blogs and I wasn't aware that it would bring a lot of free traffic on the blog that is under the "hot seat".

    I had a fiverr guy do a spot on his webcast. I didn't much care for it. I expressed my displeasure, so he had a hissy fit and refunded my money, and told me to listen to his next show because he was going to rash my website. He went on a rant about me, and the site got better traffic for about 6 days.
    If I could just piss him off each week....

    Yeah, well the reason we decided to post them is because they were reblogs of reblogs of reblogs....etc. So we figured hey, if everyone else is using it, so can we. However, because we were using them on our personal site, this guy got pissed. Just a few moments ago, I got 40 visitors from his blog that dug deep into my blog and even posted positive comments, etc.

    And yeah, what someone else said, no need to put our ancient adsense account at risk. So I removed them all.
