    I have a competitor and I would like to know how I can effectively copy the content from his wordpress monetized site and transfer it to my own. I have already copied the pages from the site, but I don't know where to ftp them to in my own wordpress site to get the pictures to show in the template. Anyone know how to do that?

    Does the site have loads of posts etc? You could just copy the feed and import that into your own site. If you want the images copy the entire source of the feed and make a new .html file and paste it in there. Then you can get a program that saves all images on a page, which you would then upload. Or, if you don't want to host them, they should still reference your competitor site, so they should still show right?

    Depends if the images are in the format <img src="http://www.competitor.com/image1.jpg"> or <img src="image1.jpg"> in which case you'd need a way to download them all (using program), and copy them to the root of your host for them to show on your own blog.

    Maybe i've misunderstood you, but it could be of help.... :)

    Yes, he does have three months worth of posts. I assume you mean I should copy his RSS feed xml file and import that into my site? I definitely want the images. He's got some cool stuff going on with his pictures using gallery scripts. When I had copied his page from IE, it included some css and .js files (from the gallery scripts) along with the jpg files on the page. How would I include those elements as well?

    As far as the pictures go, they are in the format src="http://www.competitor.com/wp-content/uploads/image1/image1-thumb.jpg">

    Can you give me the name of the program you're referring to for saving all the images on a page?

    You've been quite helpful. Thanks much!

    What you can do for the images is either add a nofollow to all of them.

    Put all the code u get into a txt editor, then ctrl + f ( find ) and replace lets say for example .jpg" to .jpg" (nofollow code)

    that could work, otherwise u have to download all of the images thru wordpress so it can have your website as the url

    I ended up just hiring a Wordpress guru from the Phillipines on Rent a coder and he did it all very quickly. It would have taken me forever to do it. He saved me a ton of time.
