How to Catch a Copycat in the Blogosphere

A cat(Stock.xchng)

When you have posted many articles, I am very sure some of the articles will be very popular with the readers. The articles are so good that copycats used them as their own articles on their own websites. How do you identify copycats in the Internet when there are more than100 million blogs out there with more and more blogs appearing each day? Believe me, copycats are very lazy people. They take your article without alteration or copy word for word with the same article title.

Here are 2 ways that I know:


  1. Search engine queries: Select randomly an article that is likely to be copied, type the article title and do a search. You will be surprised to see two identical articles appearing in the search results. One is from your site and another one is from someone else's site.


  1. http://www.copyscape.com/: Go to this website, key in the URL of your blog and do a check.


Can you think of any more ways to catch copycats? Please share with the readers and especially the article writers.
