    so i found an interesting and informative BLOG, I;d love to replicate.. fellow BH'ers HOW DO i Do it?

    please explain in detail as Im sure there are other members who will also like to know.

    here are some thoughts:

    1) grab the RSS and import it into my site
    - issue: not FULL text
    - Duplicate content
    - All the authors will be the same
    - will it pull/post images

    2) cats and structure - im sure this can be done manually, just set it up like they do

    3) general look and feel, again -- manually - edit the templates, make it look like humans edit/write/post

    ok-- NOW BH people. what are we missing, where is teh secret to duping it but flying under the radar, we have a HUGE ************** of weapons, there has to be a way.

    looking for your replies, thanks
    r

    He's right. What you are trying to do is not black hat. It's straight copyright infringement. Be careful.

    well go ahead dude but make sure you play the game safely. and let us know what happened next. Why you just wanna rely on one blog. well i agree with you that u can use article re-writer plugins and make it unique though. all th best.

    Hmm. Don't you just love the process of reverse engineering? Nice to watch a group of guys and gals dissecting an opportunity.

    sheesh I thought the blackhatters on this forum were hardcore but it seems a group of them have lost their nerve.. :) its a good thing actually some of the blackhatting going on was outright foolish.

    1. dupe content is pretty much a myth visit Google webmsster tools and watch the head programmers talk on video and say this, but it is a good idea to atleast change the titles on your posts as the new Google Caffiene ranks page titles over URL's in most cases.

    2. If they have RSS feeds then it pretty much an open invitation to 'syndicate' their content so I would not stress about any lawyers or crap like that.

    be nice to the original blog and throw a couple of 'no-follow' links back at his domain.

    plus throw in more content from other places, why clone another site when you can extract its DNA and mixx it with other stuff.

    sorry blackhat to me is about finiding loopholes not scamming, bottom line is he will end up with a law suit especially if the blog he is copying verbatum is ( and i assume it is ) owend by a hard working whitehat, if you want to encourage him to do that then thats up to you. Its a bit like google click circles people thinking its ok to gain money this way when we are effectively ripping off each other..not google or the big dogs..., im not into doing that ..not at all. I have several blogs and some of them take headlines from news articles ..i worry about that and to cover my ass i always make sure i name the site and author..but i am pulling the odd headline from thousands of blogs... not all of them from just -one- ...I honestly think the guys going to land himself in the shit. Anyone whos ever built a manual blog is fully aware of the work and effort inviolved in creating it to a point where its viable and earning even a small revenue.

    Just to say, at least 50% of the BHW members who are involed with auto blogging, do not rewrite the articles, therefore they are also breaking the copyright laws, this is BHW, you don't have to do things by the book. Infact, if you were to download a template from here which was a paid template, your also breaking the law, but I hardly see anyone complaining about that.

    Be careful what you hear and think about RSS feeds, they are not an open invitation to scrape off (read the TOS and you will usually see some rules concerning RSS feeds)

    Why not create your own blog and just try to follow the niche of the blog that you like. Add useful and unique contents. If you are too lazy to write your own contents then hire someone to do it for you. You will be spared from a lot of trouble
