A gentle request to all bloggers copying my content.

To Bloggers:
Sorry to bother our normal SAR readers with that post. But lately a really impressive amount of sites is constantly re-posting my news without mentioning my site as source of the information. And often they do spam forums and social networks and do “sell the news” as they would have found it by their own.
I do work hard to get information in advance and I would appreciate if bloggers finding the news through my site would kindly link me back. For example you could write: “found via“.

Keep in mind that often sites do also reuse my own created image compositions, my text or even “SAR tagged” links. So it’s easy to track back SAR as source :)

The same rule also applies for me. I do write over 1,000 posts per year and sometimes it happens that I mistakenly link to the wrong original source. If that happens please send me an email at and I will fix this.

Thanks You all for your understanding. And now back to a nice rumor coming soon… 😉
