Hello!

Paphos Life has a News section. We scour the web looking for suitable articles, and post snippets of them here. The process is semi-automatic. Once we have identified a News Source, we write a routine to import a link and create a news article.

If you are worried about content duplication, don't be.

  1. We never print the full story.
  2. We include a nice big button at the end of the snippet, directing the reader to the News Site the story originated from. News Sources
  3. Every news page we show has the HTML attribute "CANONICAL" set to the originating page. In English, this means that the search engines know that your page is the source of the article, and our page acknowledges this. News Sources

If you are a News Source and you want us to use your stories, just drop us a line at admin@paphoslife.com. We don't ask for any back links in return, and you won't have to provide us with any technical details. We will examine your site and work out the simplest way to extract data.

If we are using your news site and you would like us to stop, please also contact us at the above address. We will be happy to oblige if that is what you want.
