    Drip feed. I hear that all the time. Can someone please explain what it is?

    Scraping articles. How is that different from autoblogging? Or is it the same thing (where you have a script that copies stuff from another site and posts it on your site).

    Thanks!

    Incrementally releasing content. You build up a collection of content and then set each bit of the content (be it an article/blog post/link etc.) to be released or published at pre defined times/intervals. In a similar way to how IV drips work, stored fluids released over time.

    Not that much different. It basically comes down to the content source and how it will be used.

    Thanks.

    So like when you write a bunch of content and post it to a WP site, but you change the publish date so a new article is released every few days instead of all at once. Is that a Drip Feed?

    Hmmm. Ok. Yeah I heard someone talking about "article scraping" and that's what it sounded like. Does it get hit with dupe content penalties?

    edit - Is article scraping considered "black hat"?

    Yep.

    Depends who's issuing the penalties.

    Depends on the persons definition of black hat, but for the most part: yes.
