    Awesome article! Lucky for me I don’t have to wait for part 2. As it’s already out.

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for the heads up! It’s some back-end WordPress stuff that’s going on. Hope to have it fixed soon.

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to let you know that this and some other posts are listed as “uncategorized” and may be harder to find than if you put them into a specific category. Thanks again for the opportunity!

    Thanks a lot for these links, I’ll take a look at them now.

    Thanks, Bradley. Duplicate content as a penalty relates to content on your own website, not cross-domain. You can report duplicate content here: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=93713

    If you use WordPress, Yoast’s SEO plugin can help you combat scrapers by adding a link back to your website in your RSS feeds: http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/

    Great post, definitely waiting for part 2 to come.

    Also, it would be nice if you could dedicate a bit more time to the problem of duplicate content, currently I’m using http://www.plagspotter.com/ to indicate pages with duplicated content, but I’m still not sure how to properly fight it. Especially when it comes to off-page duplicate content (like rss feeds and content scrappers). Would be nice to see more information on this topic as well.

    Thanks!

    Haha, not weird at all :) Thanks!

    Possibly I’m weird, but I consider this pretty sexy work. Finding and fixing problems? So robots can understand your work? Hot.

    Nice post, Chris.
