While randomly blog-surfing I found this blog which said someone accidentally discovered “Wordprexy”. Basically ALL WordPress blogs (Yes, Including yours if you blog on WordPress) have a clone at Wordprexy. If you have a blog on WordPress.Com, you can probably punch in your URL and see “your” clone as well!
I punched in http://talkingtails.wordprexy.com and was surprised to see my blog on Wordprexy with some sort of a Disclaimer at the footer written in Turkish! The only difference between my WordPress blog and its clone on Wordprexy (sic!) is that the latter has Google Ads … Something I haven’t subscribed to.
Basically, someone has exported ALL WordPress.com blogs and has tweaked the script to add Google Ads.. Further, Googling for “Wordprexy” again brought up some queer Turkish pages. Searching on WordPress’ internal forums and FAQs didn’t yeild anything either!Are they a bunch of hackers making money out of other peoples’ content??… I wonder!
If you’re reading this, please shed some light.. I’d be glad if you did!
EDIT: Updates —
People from Wordprexy.com have clarified what the whole deal is all about (and convincingly!).. Please go through the “Comments” to this post.
