I have spoke about ways you can reduce spam in the past. Today I would like to quickly show you a simple plugin for WordPress to discourage content scrapers called Protection WP.
The plugin tries to stop scrapers in 3 ways. It allows you to:
- Disable right-click
- Disable text selection
- Disable your RSS feed
I would prefer to use alternative methods to combat content scrapers as you are bound to annoy loyal readers by disabling the right click on your blog. Additionally, if you really wanted to stop people stealing your content via RSS feeds, all you would have to do is change your feed from full to excerpt. Disabling your RSS feed completely seems a bit overkill to me.
I’m sure that there are many people who would find this useful though I encourage you to look at alternative methods first before resorting to using a plugin this extreme :)
