Associated Report Online is stealing SFGate.com titles and content

Associated Report Online is stealing from SFGate.com 
The Internet news space is getting more and more crowded and there's no better place to see how this is so than Google Trends.

Normally, news sites pop up on the left results area, and blogs on the right. But it really should not be divided that way; it's Google's way of protecting traditional news sites in a storm of new blogs.

But one firm's upsetting Google Trend and Google News' order of things: Associated Report Online.

Associated Report Online has the ugly habit of taking your entire blog or website title and using it as its own. That means in the case of SFGate.com, using the CityBright tag and the tile of the blog I post.

It's happened twice now, which is a backhanded complement to my ability to place content on Google News; Associated Report Online scrapes it. Now, this is different from a non-threatening news aggregator site like Google News and Google Trends. You have to go to those sites to see the content listed.

For Associated Report Online, you will see a title like "City Brights: Zennie Abraham : Anna Chapman" show up in a search, think it's my blog, and click on it, only to see that it is on Associated Report Online word for work, sometimes with a link, others not.

That's essentially stealing my way of blogging for search and using it as their own.

Associated Report Online, please stop it.
