Wondering what is Copyscape?

Read on…

Copyscape is an online service that will let you find who is copying your blog post and using RSS feed to create an auto RSS blog. Though Google takes copy content spam seriously but sometimes due to duplicate content and search engine algorithm, Google may treat copied content as original, and you might lose search engine ranking because of copied content.

Though we know how to fight against blog plagiarism before that it’s important to know which blog is copying your content and this is where Copyscape comes into the picture.
