get paid to post comments

To find duplicate content on your blog, you need to leverage multiple plagiarism checker tools so that you won’t be left out in the dark in case a single tool cannot detect properly every element of plagiarism within your posts.

The most challenging part of this issue is that it’s really possible for a phrase already used in someone’s posts to have been used somewhere on another person’s blog. For example, we do have millions of bloggers whose niches are all about blogging and internet marketing.

There’s no way similar phrases will not be commonly used by most of these niche related bloggers in their various posts which may cause some headache on whether a post is duplicate or not. The worries begin when you remember that some phrases used in a post might have been used copiously elsewhere which could result in getting severely penalized by Google.

The only feasible way to get free from this is to make use of multiple plagiarism checker tools as rightly mentioned above. Once about 4-6 tools have been used to detect if the content is duplicate or not, then you’ll rest assured that there’s no cause for alarm when it comes to receiving a penalty from Google.

In the blogging world, identical posts do show up in search results, yet, they can all be unique from one another so far these tools are properly leveraged. You can always ensure that you create 100% unique posts on your own blog leveraging the plagiarism checker tools that will be mentioned in this article.

In weeding out duplicate content from your own blog, you’ll succeed in becoming completely free from all forms of DMCA issues and case files. Because of the implications of publishing duplicate content on a blog, a number of plagiarism checker tools that will work out for the good of a page rank is worth mentioning.

How safe and secure is your blog? Why would you think you have to keep your blog clean and worthy of Google rankings? Google wouldn’t ever hesitate to abolish a blog from its list of indexed posts and pages for being caught with duplicate content. It’s a serious offense punishable with deletion from search engines.

Now that you’ve seen every cause to keep your blog clean and totally different from other people’s blogs in terms of article uniqueness and variety, the following plagiarism checker tools are highly recommended for the safety and security of any successful blog:

DupliChecker

DupliChecker is a free plagiarism checker tool which enables you to insert any text cut and pasted from a web page, insert the address of a site you want to check, or simply upload a text file or document. With the DupliChecker tool, you can copy and paste up to 1000 words at a time.

On this platform, there’s a link to register as a user. A registered user is allowed unlimited access to search through the tool while an anonymous user can only perform 1-3 searches a day. This tool performs more thoroughly and more efficiently than most of the other checker tools in that it checks every line no matter the length of the content and specifies which part of the content is duplicate.

Copyscape

Copyscape is one of the most popular and flexible-to-use plagiarism checker tools in the online world as you can cut and paste any part of the content or the address of the website you want to check against plagiarism into the toolbox. it requires a service charge of 5 cents for every search.

Whether you want to perform a plagiarism check at a moment or not, you’ll be required to purchase search credits on creating an account.

Copyscape has an automated program called “Copysentry services” through which a website is audited and protected

Plagiarisma

Plagiarisma supports up to 200 languages and only accepts files in the formats .docx, .odt, .doc, .pdf, .rtf, and .txt. A user is permitted to cut and paste any text, or a website address into the search box while a file or doc can be uploaded directly for a plagiarism check to be performed.

This tool will simply display search results from Yahoo and Google which enables you to detect whether a line, passage or phrase of your content has been found as a duplicate.

The platform has both free and premium versions and you can enter up to 5000 characters while performing a search as a free user. For the validity of your checks, you may have to perform searches series of times.

If you’re a registered user, you may be permitted to access the tool 4-5 times a day though this may not be adequate for a blog with so many posts to check for plagiarism. Thus, for such a blog loaded with many posts, the premium service would be suitable.

ArticleChecker

ArticleChecker is a free flexible-to-use online plagiarism checker tool which has a text box into which you can enter a large block of text to check for plagiarism. Alternatively, you may enter the address of the blog you want to check and choose the “Compare” button to start your search right away.

For efficiency in searches, you may run the checks about two times, one check being performed against Google and the other against Yahoo. Though this tool is flexible to use and free, it doesn’t catch all the results as most other tools do.

Plagium

Plagium is a reliable easy-to-use plagiarism checker tool as it permits you to perform searches for a text up to 5000 characters or simply compare two different texts cut and pasted from a page.

In order to have unlimited access to this tool, you must buy some search credits on creating an account. You won’t be restricted to occasional use any longer but will be able to perform plagiarism checks any time you want.

  1. I’ve never thought about doing this checks. I don’t know but I think it is almost impossible to have no duplicate content.
    Let’s just look at the last paragraph on an article, where you thank for the visit and ask for comments.

    No way there are millions of different ways to say that, how can I use unique wording in this sentences?

    Is there a rule, where it is punishable to have duplicate content or how many following same words count as duplication?

    Is it duplication if I translate a text in another language?

    1. Not at all, Stefan! It’s not duplication if you translate a text in another language, but you can always rest assured that you have no single duplicate content on your blog so far you can manage to use at least three checker tools from the shortlisted ones in that post.

      Using the plagiarism checker tools the way I recommended is very instrumental to the success of your blog in search engines as you’ll never receive any penalty from Google and other major search engines even if a DMCA notice is unjustifiably issued to you. You’ll always be on your feet to defend the uniqueness of your blog posts. Isn’t that good?

      Thanks for the engagement!

  2. Hi Israel,
    I always check my content to make sure and I use Copyscape. I don’t want any duplicate content popping up anywhere. I never used any of the others you have listed here.
    I always felt that using Copyscape was the best and enough to check.
    So are you saying that you use all of these tools each time? If not, do you have one that’s your favorite to use?

    1. Thanks a lot for leaving such a valuable comment, Rob! Much appreciated! It shows a good deal of engagement on your own part. Copyscape is not really the best plagiarism checker tool in the industry; it’s just one of the best tools you need to leverage while trying to weed out the duplicate content on your blog.

      Even without copying anybody’s content at all, some phrases in your posts might be exactly identical to some posts on any other niche related blog, thus, making some of your content not to be in their 100% unique status. The only bailout is to use any three of the tools suggested in this post to do a thorough checking as there’s no single checker tool that will perform the check alone in full for you.

      Wish you much success in your online business!

  3. Hi Israel,

    This is a great informative post. I needed to read into it more today, as it’s important I myself don’t make any of these mistakes, which I know I don’t. It’s risky to try and want to plagiarize anyone else’s work, and why someone would do it is just mad.

    You’ve really done your work here, and I’m given a wide range of tools to choose from. I didn’t even think about using them beforehand, but they can come in handy. Thank you for writing a nice post!

    1. Much welcome, Michael! Kudos to you for the reading! Checking all of your content against plagiarism is as crucial as getting a genuine breakthrough in your online business. Google frowns at duplicate content and wouldn’t index suc let alone ranking it.

      To really ensure that there’s no such single content on your blog and to genuinely weed away any detected one from any of your blogs, any three of the shortlisted plagiarism checker tools you can choose from at a glance will do your online business a lot of good. This will further ensure that there’ll be no cause for alarm when someone issues a Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice to you any time.

      Thanks for the engagement!

  4. Hi Israel,

    I’m am definitely going to have to check out some of those tools. They sound awesome! You recommend 3, is that a suggestion, or more of a COYOA thing?

    Thanks for the heads up,
    Laura

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Laura! Much grateful! It’s quite possible that a few phrases of texts used severally in your content might have been used exactly by another blogger who runs a niche related blog. So, using a single duplicate content checker tool might not really get this fixed out properly. The suggestion is to use at least three tools to check against plagiarism to avoid getting penalized.

      Wish you much success in your online endeavors!
