How to Scrape Content for an Article on eHow
eHow is a content publisher known for “How To..” articles. Lately, it seems eHow visits other websites, scrapes their instructional content (on whatever topic), and republishes it as a How To article on eHow. Sometimes the entire step-by-step process is “copied” for the eHow article. I’ve noticed a few times this week, how eHow articles are basically copies of existing content from other sites, worse than Wikipedia rewrites. That’s pretty much “scraping”, even if done by poorly-paid human workers.
So let this article be an article on “how to prepare an article for eHow”. When eHow scrapes it and republishes it, the magic demons of recursion will appear and maybe we’ll see fireworks… or hellfire, or whatever. Or maybe not. Maybe no one actually cares.
