    Hi all,

    Need some opinions here, should I be worry of the fact that bits and pieces of my client's site content have been copied? Does it have any effect on the rankings? Thanks in advance.

    Dennis

    depends on how much...

    if they are using wordpress their rss feed might be set up to send out the full article or a small snippet of the info.
    i have had people steal part of my content and had let it slide
    but when someone took 1 of my articles and used it in AMR to promote their site, i had my writer rewrite it to save me the trouble incase it was something panda would count against me
    I would say base it on the PR of your clients site and age, as i think that has some bearing in how google looks at it authoritively, hope that makes sense.

    My client's site is one of the authorities in the market, and the websites that copied their content are small players. They're mostly using HTML though, not wordpress based sites.

    I checked on Google once, with quotes, and I found part of my client's content being used on article directories, and the links were pointing to some companies in India!

    I would say keep an eye on it
    if its something small in nature you could either leave it alone or write to them stating you would like them to either remove it or quote it and give the proper link back.
    I have had to issue DMCA's only when someone had stolen my whole front page and posted it on their site, and in cases were whoel pages were copied and pasted on sites.

    Get yourself a stock dmca email template and fill in the blanks and send them out.

    Sometimes I have a link in my signature to a product. If I do assume it is an affiliate link and I might make a couple of bucks off it...................................

    It especially sucks if they aren't at least linking back to you properly. Either way, enable phat pings so your getting credit for your own content vs the scummy scrapers.
