I would like to know that have you ever face the problem that your content is showing duplicate without reference the main webpage however you do not know it as you just posted your article in your dedicate blog. I have heard that many people complain about it but no one knows what to do.
There are a couple of things you can do and that’s with the help of Google and a couple of paid online tools obviously.
We are perhaps some of the biggest spenders on Copyscape, we search a lot of content and you can do to.
Copyscape is a service that finds similar content on the web, paste your article and pay couple cents per search to check if some stolen your content or not.
Second thing you can do is set up Google alerts, this is super easy you go to http://www.google.com/alerts and put a part of your article and choose category of sites you want to be searched and give your email address so Google can email you when someone used your content.
Now dealing with the guy who copied, will he remove it by contacting him or you need to do more things?
In case he is not willing to remove copied content you can do the following:
– contact his hosting provider and file a complaint, to find his hosting provider use whoishostingthis.com
– use Google to file a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) against the sites that copied your content
Use Search Console to monitor Google Search results data for your properties.
Hope this helps.
