Getting into the matter now, if you have discovered that someone plagiarizes your content, you can make the decision not to do anything if the case does not bother you. But if you’ve seen bad intent, or see it as a real threat, I share some ideas to follow.
Gather all the evidence
The first thing to do before this is to collect your proof of authorship on the content. The publication dates of your content, captures of the dates of the content on your computer, if they are photos, you can add captures of your feed on instagram, etc. Of course, if any of the content is protected on a platform like Safe Creative, Creative Commons, it will be even simpler.
Not only do you collect the evidence of your authorship, but of the plagiarism itself since, while it may be an honest mistake, you should not sin innocent either. Therefore, look for the evidence and captures of the web that plagiarizes you. This is because if you warn them in advance that you plan to take some action, the person could block you or hinder the whole process.
Try to contact the owner of the blog
As diplomacy is always the best way to go, the first action after collecting evidence is to try to contact the “author” to remove the content. This is best done privately through your social networks or some email.
One way to do this is through an email from the Whois.net tool. With this, you will give him a chance to delete your content or attribute the authorship with a link to your original article. When you do this, it is important that it is not in a bad way, but that you explain the situation.
Keep in mind that many new bloggers really make honest mistakes out of simple ignorance so just explaining to them, and asking them to remove the copy, is usually enough. Now, in case you try to contact the person for a few weeks without a response, it’s time to take another step.
Tools to detect duplicates of your blog content
Realizing that your content is being duplicated is a difficult task, so you’re necessarily going to require tools to help you find it, whether they’re plagiarism on your own site, as well as external. For both cases there are free and paid tools, so here I share some of the most used.
Plagiarism Checker is another tool you can use, and it works in a very similar way to Grammica. The difference is that instead of copying the page you want to review for duplicate content, here you have to put the text directly in the search engine. In the free version the maximum is 5,000 characters.
