Lock up your website content!

Posted by: admin | Comments (12)

A friend alerted me to the existence of this handy piece of software today. It’s called Copyscape http://www.copyscape.com.

Copyscape is a product of Indigo Stream Technologies Ltd, a private company co-founded by Gideon Greenspan.┬áCopyscape is dedicated to protecting your valuable content online. They claim to provide the world’s most powerful and most popular online plagiarism detection solution, ranked #1 by independent tests. Website owners worldwide check the originality of their new content, prevent duplicate content and search for copies of existing content online.

Recently I’ve heard of bloggers having their content stolen. It hasn’t happened to me yet, so having this tool should mean that I will be able to track down the perpetrator if in fact it does happen.

Have you ever had your content stolen? How did it make you feel? Have you used Copyscape? If you have used it, was it a positive outcome?

These are a couple of stories from the Copyscape website. Yes I did copy them, however in this instance I am giving much more than taking.

As one of Germany’s leading companies for website-content our business is based on delivering unique content. We integrated the Copyscape API into our CMS and as a consequence our copywriters get instant feedback if their texts are really unique. We and our customers really appreciate the technology!

This site is awesome. We have now caught two people who have copied the entire content of our corporate site. It is unbelievable how stupid some people can be… but without Copyscape we wouldn’t have been able to find them. Thanks for the great site!
