What To Do When Bloggers Copy Your Original Content
We all know what a copied content means- it means you are risking your search engine ranking. In several cases, copied content will put your website indexed into search engine and your original content suddenly becomes duplicate. Below are some of the points on what to do when bloggers copy your original content :
- Search them
It is not very difficult today to find those who are copying your content. Add your content of plagiarism checking software’s and follow the links that have had your content posted online. Regularly do this to ensure that you content is still your property. Remember that when people are copying your content- but giving you credits, then it does not mean that they have copied the content. Search engines would not think of it as plagiarism.
- Contact Google
One of the most effective thing to do is contact google directly . And, google will take some serious action against the one who copied the article . Also , will not rank their articles on their web page.
- Add a Banner
Using a copying content banner on your website would prevent people from copying your content. People would be unable to copy and steal your content.
- Contact them
If you still find someone stealing your content, see if their website has left a contact number. Send them a polite message on contact informing them of the problem. Scare them off by saying that you would report their website and raise a dispute on search engines.
- Add date and authorization
Another great thing that you can do to prevent your content from being copied is add date, writer details, authorization stamp on the article. This would help search engines know that your content was posted earlier, and hence the later one is plagiarized. And hence penalty would shift towards the one who stole the content.
