Google’s Blogger Is THE Place For Budding Sploggers

Category: In The Media,PersonalChrisM @ 2:30 am

I recently came across the Guardian’s article on ‘Why Google is the service of choice for sploggers’. It is good to see this issue getting some attention in the press, though I doubt whether it will seriously influence the way Google operate their Blogger blogging service.
Although some people would try and include MFA (Made For Adsense) sites in the same scene as sploggers, at the very least, many MFA sites do use articles that are often helpful to those internet users who arrive on a page from a search engine result. Many sploggers simply scrape content from other sites, often WITHOUT attribution.
My niche article sites (see the categories on the left for links to some of them within posts) contain some original content – a mixture of my own work, and in some cases forum posts that I have re-written, and used with the original author’s permission, and usually with a link to a site of their choice.
