Do you know who has copied content from your site to theirs?

I’m flattered when other web sites copy snippets of my content, as long as they provide a link back to my source page.

Charles Caleb Colton, an English Writer from the early 1800’s, said:

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”

This sentiment is even more relevant in today’s WWW-arena.  But how many times has somebody copied your site content without you knowing?

If they provide a link-back to your source site, then you probably received the ping-back.  But what happens if they’ve “imitated” you – and not linked back to your source content?

How do you know they’ve done this?  Follow these 3 easy steps to see if there’s copies of your content out on the web:

  1. Follow this link to open the COPYSCAPE website
  2. Enter your website or blog url
  3. Peruse the results
