Now yesterday I talked about a horrific personal experience I had a few years back when not only was my content stolen but my ENTIRE blog was stolen. You can read my initial post here.
Now as with most things related to internet marketing, being proactive is the best thing you can do if you are serious about your business and the time you’ve spent creating it.
So let’s look at some steps you can take.
Step 1 You can manually put some of your content in double quotation marks in the google search bar and see if you can see those unique sentences and paragraphs elsewhere online.
Step 2 You can use Copyscape and other plagiarism monitoring websites to test the uniqueness of your content against other sites on the web.
Step 3 Google Alerts is another effective way to find out which phrases have been used elsewhere in your articles. It is a good idea to put your personal name into these alerts and you will receive a notification with a link to any web page with similar content in the future.
Interesting Feedback From Matt Cutts
It’s pretty crazy that Google and the head of the web spam team, Matt Cutts openly admit that sites with stolen, duplicated content can actually outrank the original author’s site.
Take a moment to watch this informative video.
