Ask permission before adding blogs to my aggregator? (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I want to make an aggregator blog. My question is, should I ask blog authors for permission before including their RSS feeds in my blog?

    Thank you!

    Yes, probably.

    Especially if you are just scraping their content. It could dilute search reults, and generally tick people off. A lot of people do not want/appreciate having their content used without permission

    how about just title not content...

  4. I think title with a link back would be fine. Best would be a hand crafted post with an explanation why you like their post and a link back ;)
