Website Monitoring Tool
Might you have too many instances of the same content appearing out there on the internet? Is your content being scraped, splogged or just plain stolen? Do you think a competitor has duplicate websites that the Google spamstalkers should know about? If so, Copyscape is the tool for you.
Simply go to the site, and type in the URL of the page you want to check, then hit “GO”.
Copyscape will scan your page, then look for other duplicate chunks of text elsewhere on the ‘net. Note that the first result returned is usually a cached version of your page.
When you click on any of the results, you’ll see a copy of the page where the duplicate content lives, with the content highlighted.
Why should you care about duplicate content? You’re investing in a strong internet marketing plan. Search engines can ignore or penalize content they deem duplicate. Why risk finding damaging your efforts?
