    anyone uses copyscape.com?

    lately, i started using this to monitor my originality in my articles. having no other reliable tool I use it on a regular basis.

    I use copyscape regularly. I have a premium membership and I believe it's well-worth the very low cost. I've checked other methods (Google) and other online copy checking applications and I don't believe any can beat copyscape.

    I don't understand the 10x thing but copyscape has a great reputation behind them. I've used them before just to see any of my material seemed a little to similar.

    Obviously if you are writing the content of your site yourself then there is no point of it as you know if you are ripping someone elses work off or not however if you happen to pay people to write content for you then yeah I've heard it's good for checking originality.

    I have written content for the web for over 10 years and I use copyscape to check my own website content as well as checking content my clients send me for editing and finding those who have copy-pasted what I have written to their websites. The reason I check my own content is because there are tons of other writers who have websites and a lot of us have pretty similar ideas. I want to make sure that while I need to express those ideas to my potential clients, I have done it in a way that they see the content on my site is 100% original, just like the content I will write for them.

    Do you care to tell us why you believed it was a waste of time?

    Yes great site. Especially since they have spelling and grammar errors in the 60+ words of content on their homepage.

    I think it will be great when you be the premium member,

    Do you mean to say that without premium membership, you can't effectively check whether the content is copied or not? I am not a premium member but have been using the service for the past five years.

    I am a regular user of copy-escape and it worth to use this website to cross check the content of your webpage. You can easily track the content of your website. If someone copies/copied it, you can find out and change it easily.

    This is the first time I heard copyscape.com since I'm just an amateur when it comes to article writing. I'm glad I found this thread going to check it now.

    I use it as a premium member. It's invaluable for checking work from writers as even some freelance writers occasionally attempt to pass off something they've just copied from another site, or failed to rewrite effectively.

    It's better to write your own articles, then you don't have to worry about it. I don't have any experience with copyscape but in college my professors used turnitin.com

    I also use copyscape.com and i think its best because it not only check the originality of the content but also make comparison of copied content and provide you a detailed report. Its fun to use copyscape.

    I couldn't agree more and here's another scenario:

    A client sends you content to rewrite or edit in hopes of improving position is search engine results. You run it through copyscape and find it verbatim on dozens of other sites. If you rewrite it, it is still plagiarized and you have opened both yourself and your client up to potential legal problems. It's much better to alert your client of the potential problem, do the research and write something original. However, without copyscape or a similar application, you might never have known.

    Recently this very thing happened to me. Page after page of content appeared in numerous sites (up to 63) that copyscape found. In doing a Google search for the client's keywords, none of the offending copy was on first page of the results, even though some of the sites were high-profile, nationally known brands. Apparently search engines do find and penalize duplicate content.
