I write pretty well and the articles I submit to directories are taken by jerks who change my links to their own ClickBank links, alter my Resource Box info to reflect their own sites, or leave it out completely.
To top things off, they end up ranking higher than me with my own stuff. I never could figure that one out. I spent a lot of time in 2011, contacting ClickBank, and getting their accounts flushed. (I literally had CB Security on speed-dial.)
I've had so much stuff stolen that I have just about sworn off submitting anything. If guys rank below me, I don't bother with them, but if someone shows up above me I have to take the time to go after them. Still, it takes ClickBank about 10 days to bust them because they give them chances to remove the content.
I would think that marketers of your stature would be fighting this everyday. Any suggestions would be helpful.
