5. Copyscape

Copyscape is one of the oldest and popular plagiarism checker site. Here you can find duplicate content by adding the URL. It’s fast and cheap.  I’m not a huge fan of Copyscape anymore as the interface is quite old and they have not even moved to HTTPS which shows that the people behind Copyscape are not so serious about the tool.

  1. Thanks again Shout me loud for this post.
    At this time only a fool will not use a plagiarism checker! Previously I used Copyscape, but now switched to Unplag. It costs not much, but provides many different features, so it’s worth it.

    Thanks again Shoutmeloud for this post.
    I am a fan of grammarly, but I never used the web version, so I came to learn today about Grammarly’s this feature.
    Smallseotools.com is also a great site to check this.

  3. I’ve been a guest blogger for multiple outlets and after a simple google search, saw that some of my work was being plagiarised without my approval. I’ve started to use Copyleaks as it notifies me when others have used my work. Also very cost efficient for different price packages

  4. Thanks, Harsh! Grammarly is an ultimate tool. After panda attack, I’m using this tool to rewrite my contents. Meanwhile, try using Ginger tool which also provides rephrase suggestions, which Grammarly can’t help.

  5. Thanks for all the different options here. I am currently trying out copyscape, but will try the others as well. Once again, fantastic information!!

  6. Hi Mukund,
    Fantastic article!
    I usually use Unplag plagiarism checker https://unplag.com/, because it can check up to 5 papers online and gives me real-time access to an unlimited number of pages, because it uses the most popular web indexes and gives me also qualitative result.
    But I think for checking a small piece of information all those free checkers would be great and of course will save my money.
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Nice Article thanks for sharing. I strongly recommend this article to those bloggers who felt or feeling something like me.


  8. I never knew these tools until two months ago.

    First time I checked my site for duplicate content and even I found duplicate articles in my own site, because I moved all content from blogger blog to WordPress.

    Thanks for the list of good tools.

  9. Hey, Mukund! Thanks for sharing!

    At this time only a fool will not use a plagiarism checker! Previously I used Copyscape, but now switched to Unplag. It costs not much, but provides many different features, so it’s worth it.

    But, anyway, you published an article about 10 tools… and which is the best even so? Which tool do you use for your content checking?

  10. Ramanjit Singh

    Copyscape and dupli checker seems to be simple….
    Copyscape shows the duplicate content from your own website too…
    Really helpful for checking the duplicate content!

  11. I find a lot of people using Copyscape which is good but often fail to detect when a few words are tweaked or altered from an original work. To ensure that a work is unique, try entering it in paragraphs or simply divide it into chunks of three or four and check.

  12. Excellent list. Well, I do know the top 2, but didn’t know about all the others. It’s good to know more alternatives. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  13. Sarang Dravid

    Thanks again.

    @Asif Ahmed: Well, I’m on your side as well. I use the tools mentioned above to check the guest articles on my blog. Anyway, thanks for the comment Asif!

    @rakesh: Well, why don’t you file a DMCA against such blogs, just in case, they don’t remove the article?

  16. some of my contents were copied by joomla site running from USA. I could not do anything except, as we do not have any copyright on that article. Now they are enjoying my content. So what is the fun of these types of websites. We can only send mails to these webmasters and they really does not respond.
