How To Report Copyright Infringement To Google

If you publish content on the internet, other people may copy and post it on their blog site. Some do it because of negligence, but eventually, by losing traffic, you have to pay the cost and your internet rank will decrease.


Report Copyright Infringement to Google

Google becomes more intelligent to find websites that replicate your content, but not every single time. When others copy articles from your blog, they can sometimes get higher ranking on search engines more highly than your original content.


This Tutorial will also teach you how to report these websites to Google if your content is also copied by others.


Reporting such pages to Google would lead to them being De-indexed from google search engine and thus your website rank increases, furthermore, if the reported page is on Blogspot/Blogger, Google also deletes the article from the blog and this process takes an estimated 3 - 9 days to be fully processed so you have to be patient.


How To Find Sites That Copies Your Contents

There are a lot of services out there that serves this function but my favorites are Smallseotools, and Copyscape because there are totally free, easy to use and shows you the list of all the website stealing your articles. (Note: if you post your articles on forums too, those forums would also be listed).

SmallSeoTools: Copy your articles and paste it in the space provided and then click check for Plagiarism, it would take only a couple of seconds and it will tell you how unique the article is, and if it is not 100% Unique, it would show you a list of websites with similar contents. This service is totally free but you are limited to 1000 words per search and unlimited search daily.

Copyscape: This is similar to Smallseotool but it has an easier method of just pasting the link of the article you want to check, and it will crawl the article, conduct an extensive search and give results of all websites with same contents. There is a daily limit to search conducted on a website and once exceeded, you will be required to buy premium service to continue.

Google Direct: Searching on Google for some specific keywords in your article is also an easier and quicker method of finding such websites for free.
Go to Google, type in your keywords and make sure it long enough and also use the quote sign at the beginning and end of the search. Hit the search button and you will see a list of all websites with the same words.

Example, search for "BEST SOURCES FOR COPYRIGHT FREE PICTURES". and surely Trybeweb should be the only one appearing on the search result.
