Hi everyone,

When i paste an article on copyscape to see if it was plagiarized, and after i click on search text it says that "no results found for the text you paste", it means that the text wasn´t plagiarize at all, right?So everything is ok with him, right?

thanks.

Hi Anarim,

That's my understanding, yes.

No; it means only exactly what it said: that no duplicate content was found online by Copyscape.

The text in question could, for instance, have been copied out of an encylopedia whose articles are not archived online. Just because Google hasn't indexed content doesn't mean that it can't be plagiarised.

That's a good point, stapel. I was thinking too much about the web and not enough about the wider implications of the question!

So what if I paste content from my website and it doesn't show up, yet the page has been up for a few months. How do I trust someone who has written an article for me if it doesn't even show up in copy scape premium

Good job Staple, that was the precise answer.

However, Tumanako - the question you need to ask yourself is - Why do you want your content to be unique?

Is that to avoid duplicate content penalties? To get more traffic from search engines? or for integrity sake - you just need to know that the person has actually devoted time and written unique content?

Copyscape helps you with the first two points. The third is literally impossible to find out - until someone surfing your site tells you that he/she has read this in a book that either hasn't been published online, or is not indexed by Google/Copyscape.

At the end of the day, Copyscape is the closest you reach to perfection in this imperfect "who's copied from who" world

If duplicates do show up, that's when you may have a problem. If nothing shows up, then at least you do not appear to have a problem, at the moment, online.

If you are sufficiently uncomfortable about the product which has been supplied to you that a "clean" result from Copyscape leaves you still questioning, then perhaps the problem is not Copyscape, but your vendor. Maybe you need to look into creating your own content, or at least hiring a writer in whom you have greater confidence...?

I double check the articles that we have in Copyscape, it shows that it really effective way to detect plagiarism.  We tried also checking our articles by doing this in google search "Allintitle: Article Title"

I was hoping for a more detailed explanation of HOW copyscape works, and ideally why copyscape is more reliable than some of its newer competitors. Can anyone help?

(PS. I hope no one's written this before)

Thanks Hannja, but what I meant was greater detail in HOW copyscape works (in layman terms) rather than a mere overview. Thanks all the same, appreciate the thought.

I am bit a confused over here. One member says that Copyscape can track content which is not even indexed by Google. Now what that means. We are worried about copied content just because Google can penalize it. If Google can not track it what general people like us would do?
