4 Ways of Total Content Protection 

The below mentioned 4 best methods include all the possible ways to protect any content, website, articles, or blog posts. From easiest to finest ways to secure your blogs or websites from content theft.

#1 The best way to stop people from stealing your blog articles is to give all your content away for free

Think about it...

If your content is free, then taking and using it is no longer theft. You can't steal something that's free.

If you want to be successful, you need to embrace this mindset.

You can't worry when someone steals your material. In fact, you should feel humble. You should feel complimented. Most of all, you should feel motivated to write more stuff people want to steal.

When people steal your content, they are marketing for you for free.
They are helping spread your ideas and your voice.

... and let's face it, it's obvious when a site is scraping content. Scrappers will not be successful, they will only end up promoting you, and sending traffic to your website because they are lazy.

The thief's are so lazy, they don't categorize, tag or import logically, chronologically or do anything besides re-post.

They usually copy your content word for word, preserving all your backlinks...
They are so lazy, the end up promoting your site for free!

As long as you remember to link to your internal content, or recommend your newsletter, it's awesome if people spread that content all around the internet!

Some people pay money or beg for the opportunity to guest post. Thief's are giving you this for free. It's time to stop calling these helpers thieves! Change your website policy to 'Creative Commons Attribution' and encourage even more people to share your content!

Let everyone know they are welcome to take your content, do whatever they want with it, even make it better or sell it. As long as they keep attribution, recognizing you as the source, this can only be beneficial. This can only help your marketing.

It's free promotion. Take advantage of it and profit !
