    Someone copied an article for referrals I wrote on an old blog a few years back. The article is copied word for word, no joke! They even forgot to change the affiliate links on all the links, I just logged onto all the accounts to find hundreds of active referrals and over five hundred dollars in site value from them! Thank you noobs!

    Good that you're getting the benefits from it. Maybe you should write another one and see if they bite on that one too. :D

    The "copying" may be auto-scraping. You should test this and see if they auto "copy" your content. Get a sense of their schedule, and then hire a VA and start feeding them your content and affiliate links on a regular basis.

    hahaha, thread of the day. It is a message for everyone to hyperlink your article's body text rather than using buynow/addtocart buttons. :D

    It happened to me too once. Some1 cloned an affiliate blog of mine , or at least the index page, without changing a single letter. I got a few sales from that :)
