B/R’s Blog Syndication Process
It has recently been brought to our attention that some former users are questioning our blog syndication process. We’d like to quickly clear up a few pertinent questions.
Blog imports makeup 6% of Bleacher Report’s articles. The other 94% is original content created on the site. While we do leave the blog syndication option open, we strongly encourage our users to write directly on the site. The benefits are numerous, including increased visibility with partners and use of our content formats.
In regards to the aforementioned caset, the only way someone can syndicate their blog onto B/R is to sign up through their profile page and paste a line of code into their blog template. We don’t have the means to do that.
It sounds like in this case, the user(s) syndicated their blogs onto B/R over a year ago and forgot about it. Understandably, seeing your content posted on another site without knowing how it got there would be troubling. Thankfully, our checks and balances make it impossible for anyone but the user to syndicate their own blog onto the site.
If anyone would like to unsubscribe from B/R at anytime, please email DMorrison@bleacherreport.com and your profile will promptly be removed.
