Try To Avoid Duplication Of Content Using Free Plagiarism Checking Tools

Table of Contents

Duplicated content is not a new phenomenon. Duplicated content is called plagiarised content which means the presentation of someone else's work or ideas as new and original instead of derived from an existing source.

It is easy to recognize plagiarism if someone takes the exact words from an article, but in today's content-driven web, modern writing techniques often have lesser instances of plagiarism due to indirect copying, paraphrasing, or close imitation of wording.

But still, checking your content for duplication is a must step before it goes live. This is where plagiarism checking tools come in handy.

checking tools can be helpful in avoiding duplicate content issues that could possibly cause problems down the line. But first, let us give you some background about what plagiarism is and how it occurs in writing.

What is plagiarism?

Plagiarism is defined as “the action of taking someone else's work or idea and passing it off as your own.” In other words, it means “to steal and pass off (another's writing or ideas) as one's own.

How does it occur in content?

Plagiarism occurs in content by following stirs:

  • Copying another person's work word by word
  • Copying a general idea from another person's work without directly giving credit to them
  • Borrowing ideas from someone else without referencing them

There are so many types of plagiarism, however, direct plagiarism and indirect plagiarism are the most common types in content writing.

Direct plagiarism

Directly copying content from other sources without citing the original source or resource. This is the most common kind of plagiarism that occurs in content writing.

Indirect plagiarism

Re-wording or rephrasing content from other sources without changing the main idea or structure of the paragraph. This type of plagiarism is harder to detect since it does not involve direct.

Consequences of plagiarism

Writers tend to take ideas or sometimes copy ideas from websites just to get higher rankings in search engines but this is not advisable as has started penalizing for duplicate content over the past few years, making it difficult for website owners to rank well in all major search engines.

If in any case, you beat the Google penalties, still the original writer has the right to sue the plagiarist. Copyright regulations are absolute.

You cannot escape from copyright infringements after copying someone's work without referencing and citation. Moreover, it ruins your academic career if you are a student, and your professional career if you are a webmaster or content writer.

So, plagiarism should never be taken lightly, and you should avoid it in the first place.

  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 <@211319858258771968> it sure will work. Make sure to write that it’s free to post as guests. A lot of websites do not mention this and writers usually think it’s paid opportunity only.

    Keep us updated of how well this goes for your website.
  • soutaraku avatar soutaraku Thank you so much for the detailed guide. I'll see if I can put up the Guest Post page to start with! I hope my email gets bombarded in a good way haha
  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 You should start putting up a page called Guest Posting on your other website where you put articles, etc.. and put all the requirements there which you are looking for in the guest posts. Make sure to leave your email as well for easier contacts.

    Build up some links to this page. Because most of the writers are looking to write for high metrics website that have good DA, TF, etc...

    Once you have a page setup it will help you get attention from people who are searching on Google.

    Next you can start sending the URL of this page to people whom you think might be interested to write for your service on social networks like twitter, linkedin, etc.

    Also list this page URL on websites that have posts like free guest posts list in SaaS, free guest posts list in "your niche", etc. Something like this:

    These will get you enough traction to attract guest posts from various contributors over the time. Your email will be bombarded with emails following the above tips.

  • nkap avatar nkap <@341197404302737408> Just these:

    You can try 3 things: (I suggest you try the 3rd option first)

    1. If there are any links in your coverage report that’s actually not from your domain/property, I’d recommend you use the Search Console’s removal tool to remove these from your property.

    2. If you’re using any page builders like elementor etc make sure you turn off search engine indexing for things like templates. You can find this in Yoast SEO settings. With this setting your templates and unnecessary pages won’t be indexed. Are you using elementor by any chance?

    3. It’s also possible that your site has been hacked. If random URLs are appearing in analytics and search console the first thing that you should do is check your .htaccess file to see if someone has put any rewrite rules.

  1. Quetext has been my favorite duplicate content checker. I will check if the other tools are any good.
    Most of the tools look for plagiarism for word to word. If there are tools that can look for plagiarism of ideas, wouldn’t that be great?
