A lot of you have been consistently asking us how content can be protected and also how can one read if someone has plagiarised on their own blog.

So here we will introduce to you a simple tool which can help you with both of these things.

Copyscape.

1 To check if someone has plagiarised you

Now Copyscape has two versions- Free and Premium. In the free version you can compare your blog (or any other link) against another link (specifically need to know) and tool will draw a comparison and highlight if there are any form of common content between the two. You can try it here

To check across the entire internet you need to take the premium version of the tool.

2 To safeguard your content against plagiarism 

While we have ensured cure or rather diagnosis with first point, you always must secure your content as way of prevention. Copyscape gives you an easy option to do that as well. While there is always the Copyscape banner that you can place on your website deterring visitors from copying. A more pro-active tool from them is Copysentry it is a paid tool but one that helps you detect any plagiarism against your content in any given time- Across the internet!

3 To avoid accidental plagiarism at your own end

But of course we use material to research and put together posts. A lot of times unintentionally our pieces come out more copied than inspired. And at such times to copyscape helps us to detect these unintended mistakes. Copyscape Premium can be used for this as well. All new content on your blog can be run through the tool to ensure this doesn’t happen.

4 A duplicate page of your blog

There have been cases when an entire blog has been duplicated at another location. This needless to say is most distressing. Copyscape has a free plagiarism tool that can help you detect this.

While we have only discussed Copyscape to ensure that we can provide information on one tool at length, there are many more available online. If you have tried a few and have experiences to share we would love to hear so !

Around the challenge we have built up a rather interesting festival as well called the Blogchatter Writing Festival– celebrating the blogger to author journey.

Did we say author?

Oh wait. Have you not seen last year’s post challenge Blogchatter Ebook carnival? Championed by Chitra Divakaruni we received twenty six ebooks during the month of May all self-published by our community members.

This time we have eight popular authors who are coming along as part of our mentor program for festival, taking up special twitter chats and facebook live sessions to further your publishing dream. Read more here: Blogchatter Writing Festival

As part of Festival we will once again be opening our portals for your self-published ebooks (in case you choose to convert your April blogging challenge into one). You can ping us here or anywhere you find us for queries, etc.

This month we will also be taking up the #AtoZChallenge with you. Celebrating better blogging across platforms through our theme:
