    sites copying from other sites


    Hello,
    I discovered that there are few websites automatically copying from my wordpress site plus many other sites, inlduding big ones, in the same subjects. they may or may not provide link.
    would this hurt my search engine ranking? and they even do this instantly as soon as i publish something. what must i do? or is it good because they provide a link? or you suggest writing link to my posts from now to my own site so when they copy they also display link??

    When they copy your site, it is not your site which will suffer in SERP ranking, but theirs! And if you find such sites, you have two options, either report them or tell them to display your link in their published content.

    If they are just directly copying without your permission it's copyright infringement.

    Yes, is Copyright infringement.
    Once you find it out, what you can do?
    Which one is the next step?

    Yes I agree with you, this same thing happened to me a while ago and I didn't do anything but at last those copied contents could no longer be found on Google Search.
    It seems google automatically detect that by their own. But another option could be filling a dmca.

    Because your content is updated first on the website so they are the ones that stole your content gets affected. So you don't have to worry about anything.
