    How to Report Blog Posts Copy Spam to Fight Against Plagiarism

    Few months back we talked about copyscape service under title Is someone copying your blog?

    Copyscape is an online service which helps you to find out who are copying your blog posts. If someone is copying your blog post that is called Plagiarism.

    There are many reasons for which people copy your blog post.

    • Lack of understanding (Mostly newbie’s)
    • Spam blogs ( To get traffic and authority)
    • MFA blogs (Made for adsense blogs)

    It could be any reason. No matter who is copying your blog, it’s bad for you in many ways and specially for search engine ranking. Sometime blog copying your content ranks better than yours and thus you lose all the traffic despite of your hard work. When someone copies your blog content, you would be definitely losing:

    • Your bandwidth
    • Search engine ranking
    • Image hotlinking
    • Money

    The point here is if someone if copying your blog, you should take it seriously. The first approach should be contacting the author and make them understand the concept of plagiarism. You should also read How to deal with blog plagiarism?.

    In most of the case this works. If not, you can report to the advertisement partner of that blog or the hosting company of the blog. To make your work easier I’m pointing out few hosts along with the contact page to report abuse

    Hosting Report Link
    Blogspot Blogspot spam
    WordPress.com WordPress.com spam
    blog.co.in blog.co.in abuse
    Dreamhost Dreamhost Spam
    Adsense Adsense Abuse reporting
    Youtube Youtube Spam

    By reporting spam, you are actually participating in the blogging community effort to keep it clean.
