I will try to keep this short:
1. I post a blog post and I usually get a pingback in a short period of time, indicating that I got splogged.
2. I have not received a pingback indicating I have been splogged on any older blogs, always ones that I post the most recently.
3. I had 7 visitors (HAHA I suck) today before I wrote this blog post in question. Now I posted the blog post, I wait a bit and I get the pingback. I check the blog stats... still have 7 VISITORS! How is this explained? Is my blog in some sort of registry where I automatically get splogged everytime I write a blog post? Like I send a ping to all the scrappers out there to take my content automatically
4. I have noticed that if I do not get a pingback within a hour or two that means my blog is "safe" and I will not get splogged (well no pingback indicating I will get splogged)
Are these patterns consistent with what some of you guys experience? Have you ever had content stolen where you did not know about it via pingback but found out via other means (copyscrape or google search for example)... Do these scrappers always give you this link in order to indicate to you that they have stolen content?
Would like to hear from anyone and your experiences about this :)
