Tuesday, 22 May 2007, 1:30 AM EST

One of the things that Blackhat SEO types do is they attempt to scrape other peopleís sites that have original content. Then they post that content on their site as their own, attempting to raise their own page-rank. Because the search engines arenít smart enough to know who is the original author, the sploggers get higher in the page ranks.
