How can I check if anyone is stealing my website content?
Ideally, no one would ever copy something and publish it themselves without getting the original author's permission. Realistically, however, anyone can copy information contained on your website or blog and post it on their own. Online anti-plagiarism services can help you determine if the content you own is appearing elsewhere on the Internet. The following services can help you find plagiarized versions of Internet content.
Plagtracker is a fast, free plagiarism and grammar checking site. Mainly for academic purposes.
A fantastic and easy to use method of searching for other pages that have copied and used images from your site.
Google can help find content that was plagiarized. For example, if you have a popular section on your site copying a few lines into a Google search can pull up results of users with the same content.
This example content is unique to the site, it's original, and it's mine.
Copying and pasting the above line of text into Google, surrounded by quotes causes Google to perform an exact match on that string and display any matches if found. For example, you would be searching for: "This example content is unique to the site, it's original, and it's mine."
