I own an article directory and a lot of my time is wasted searching on google to see if submitted articles are plagiarised. I've found that about half are either totally plagiarised or reworked with a lot of the same sentences or phrases. Needless to say I decline these articles, but I am fed up with my time being wasted and hoped that Copyscape could help me.

When I tried the search on the home page with several different articles I always get the same result, a directory for witches spells. It seems related to my URL rather than the articles themselves. I guess that I could look for a spell to cast on the plagiarists but that wouldn't be very nice.

With the nature of article directories there are bound to be articles submitted that the authors have already submitted elsewhere. So what I really need is for articles to be flagged as possibly plagiarised and then I don't have to spend time searching for the ones that are ok. Will Copyscape be able to do that?

What do you mean by "searching on your home page"?

Since Copyscape compares web-page contents (that is, the text of a URL) to what has been found online, I don't see how Copyscape could "vet" your articles before publication. You could run a block of text through, using the "paragraph" box in the Premium service. But since the articles have not yet been published on your site (that's what you're trying to prevent, right?), there is no URL for Copyscape automatically to check.

I think you're stuck doing this by hand. It's a down-side of having a "post here for free publicity" sort of site (judging from your "signature" here).

Just my opinion, of course; I could be wrong....

You could also try using the Copyscape Premium service, which allows you to cut and paste the actual text you want to check.
