Tynt is a service which gives you a code so anyone who copies from your content gets a pop up offering them Twitter, Facebook and etc to share the content. It also, adds code to the content they copy so that a link back to the original source (your site/ page) is automatically included in the copied content.
Could we have this code (not from Tynt http://tynt.com/ I'm just showing it as an example) added to our HubPages content? This would be some help with content which is scraped and not given a linkback. They don't seem to check the content - just copy and paste it all. So even the content we don't catch will at least give us a link back to our original source.
This sounds worthy and interesting. If there is a downside, let's hear it folks.
I don't want a link back from a poor quality site that's stolen my content.
I don't want thieves to think the link legitimizes what they are doing. And I don't want unrelated, spam sites linking to me, as that's not actually of any benefit search-engine-wise.
Uh-oh... She has a major point there I think.
Yes, you are probably right about that ... as usual.
Personally, I don't care that much about search engines. I want my content being found by actual readers. I also want a good way to find stolen content and checking backlinks like this would make that possible.
It isn't just for content scrapers. Anyone who quotes your post would have the linkback to the source. Other big sites use this. I don't know about eHow - I seldom find anything quotable there.
I'd forgotten about that. Backlinks from slime sites can actually be detrimental. I wonder if Tynt addresses that and came up with a solution? Off to check...
Well, well, well...!!! eHow uses this code! My opinion of eHow is well-known... If Google slaps them into backlinking-oblivion next week like I think they should...
