Scraper Site




What is a scraper site?

A scraper site is a website which pulls content from other sources and republishes it, typically without attribution. Such sitesĀ  are maintained for a variety of reasons, and they are of great concern to many legitimate content producers on the Internet, because they pose a number of problems. Most scraper sites violate copyright law by reprinting content without consent and not crediting the author, and they also wreak havoc in search engineĀ  results and site rankings, which can make it difficult for Internet users to find the sites they actually want to see.
