Are some nasty, lazy bloggers constantly duplicating your blog posts on their blog and possibly outranking you for keywords you worked so hard to discover?
Are you in pain of having your articles republished without a backlink to yours?
If your answer is yes, don’t fret anyone because I have got a unique cure for it. This is a once in a lifetime strategy for tackling blog post plagiarism.
This is me telling you that you are not alone in this pain because I just recently had a fair share of mine. But how I dealt the copycat a blow is what I’m going to teach you now.
Story of How My Blog Posts Was Plagiarized
Yesterday night while checking backlinks to my insurance blog, I discovered one blog with a DA of 4 that linked to mine.
In the course of investigating the site, I discovered that the copycat uses a software that republishes every single article I paid heavily to publish on my insurance blog.
Vexed at the abnormality, I reported the blog to Google and their web hosting registrar, Godaddy using a guide from this article, http://bit.ly/report2google.
Right now, both companies, Google and Godaddy have commenced investigation into the matter and by the time they are done, 95% of all the articles on their blog will be deleted. And if care is not taken, the site will be blacklisted.
An uninformed mind would say I’m being mean but when it comes to blogging, plagiarism is one thing we don’t tolerate because it comes back to hurt the blog copyright owner in multiple measures.
Except one Nigerian writer who’s currently doing internship with us, I pay foreign ghost writers to create some of the best content you can find around, especially on subjects I don’t know jack. So seeing one dickhead sit in his house to duplicate them can be very irritating.
If you wish to start a blog but you don’t know how to put simple words together, go and learn or go get a decent job. Blogging is not a do or die affair.
I learnt to write through practice and not by duplicating other people’s articles.
If you are a blogger on my list you are free to copy my Facebook posts and publish them on your blog but NEVER copy an article from my blog and duplicate it in yours. I will find out and come after you without any form of official warning.
Everyday, I create not fewer that 5000 words you can’t find anywhere on my blogs across different social media platforms so that copycats will always have something to copy. But when you go beyond copying my social media posts to copying my blog posts, then it means you are looking for my trouble. Trust me, you will find it.
Soon, I will stop warning about this and just let justice prevail.
My social media posts are FREE for you to copy and publish on your blog BUT my blog posts are prohibited from being copied, especially if you won’t give dofollow link to them.
If people like us who know better how to report matters like this (bit.ly/report2google) don’t take decisive action, Nigeria will continue to produce nymphs who go about copying other people’s articles and be calling themselves bloggers.
Stealing people’s intellectual property is an offence.
Share this to inform your neighbours.
This is a lovely post. You have shared an informative post which is very helpful.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day.
It’s really heartbreaking to see if someone stealing our efforts, especially the content. Thanks for sharing your experience helping others to be alert with these copycats.
Really sorry to hear that and I know it is very painful. Once, I got a guest post from a huge blogger (he has verified social media profiles) with plagiarized paragraphs from other bloggers.
Sometimes, even huge bloggers do this unethical thing for backlinks.
