Backlinks are essential in getting a favourable position in the Google, Bing and Yahoo Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). There are various means of attaining links (backlinks) to a Website with publishing articles online as a means of achieving this. How this method works is that an article is published on one of the article submission services and the author may include a little sales pitch (with links) at the end of the article. The article may be republished from the article service however it must be republished ‘as is’ (i.e. no changes). If the article is therefore republished the author may expect to attain numerous links to their website. Unfortunately plagiarism and dishonest abounds on the Internet.
Plagiarism when Copying Content
Give Credit where it is Due
I decided to do a quick check on articles that I have published on Ezinearticles to see whether my articles are being attributed correctly. I found that my articles have been republished (in one case a few hundred times) however only very few republishers aren’t removing the links and author name. I really do not understand the reason for this dishonesty; if you are copying someone’s work then at least give credit to the author.
