Warn Plagiarists with Copyscape

Do you really want to make money online? If you do, then make sure to come up with an original content on all your blog posts.

I've been into personal blogging since 2003 and professional blogging since March this year. Everytime I write a post, I am thinking of my blogging purpose. That inspires me to put my heart and make the most out of blogging about my ideas.

That's why it really bothers me when I read posts from bloggers about their content copied entirely by another blogger. This unjust act just under utilizes the copycat's intellect.

This brings me to check out Copyscape. You can place the banner on your blog to warn plagiarists from copying your content. You can also take advantage of their paid service so you can be informed right away if these copycats did a bad job again.

All of my blogs have these banners from Copyscape. How about in your blog?

I personally use the website to find duplicated content. To me it has a number of benefits over copyscape:

1. it's automated and brings me results instead of me searching for duplicated content. All i had to do was submit my feed and it started monitoring my feed showing me who's republished my articles on the web.

2. i get notified by email so it contacts me when it finds copies of my articles online.

3. i use their image badge feature to alert me directly on my website when my content is being lifted.

4. it's a free service as opposed the "per page" cost of copyscape/copysentry.
