Over the years we have been seeing a steady increase of blogs that re-post other websites articles (we refer to it as canned content). We over looked this for a long time, but have finally decided that Blogsurfer.us will no longer circulate these so called blogs.
Is my blog at risk of being blocked?
If you write your posts yourself then no. We will be verifying original articles by running web searches for the same content. If your content repeatedly shows up from several different sources then your blog will be blocked.
What if my blog posts are just pictures and not actual articles?
We are only looking at actual text articles.
Will one article re-post get my blog blocked?
No we will run multiple searches on multiple posts before blocking any URL.
Will I be notified if my blog is blocked?
No, you know if you are not writing your own content and can just assume you are already blocked 🙂
How do I report other so called blogs that are posting canned content?
You can report these blogs by clicking the “Block this URL” icon just to the right of the “Currently Reading” text box.
As usual if you have any questions, please feel free to either leave a comment or email us at support [at] blogsurfer.us
