    I noticed already today after making a new blogsite approx 3 days ago i already have 2 leachers. They are both posting excerpts with a link back to my website. Now considering they are linking back should i just ignore it since its giving me backlinks right? I mean i could change my feed so they cant scrape as easily, but is it worth letting them do it for the backlinks?

    Ive ran into this issue myself. Are you allowing an entire post to be RSSed? If so, drop it to title only and maybe a small portion of the post. Then it will become a backlink with your post title. hope this helps.

    sorry..still too early and not enough coffee. Excerpts are okay. I havent seen drop in my traffic and backlinks are never a bad thing. in my opinion.:)

    I have had ENTIRE blog post COMPLETELY COPIED by some autoblogs and the BigG counts those copied/scraped posts on those autoblogs as backlinks even though its the exact same post! IMHO, don't sweat this and be glad its happening!
