    Hello All

    I am making a new affiliate blog and I'm starting to outsource the content and reviews and all that kind of staff. But I have found another blog with the same content that I will use on mine with everything almost ready to go.Then I did a experience of copying one of the reviews and pasting on copyscape and for my surprise 0% was found. So how reliable is that ??? Even of I hire a writer to do that how can I make sure my content is not copied from another blog and passed on copyscape. Also another question arise.. how safe is to use this content on my blog without risk to be penalised by Google ?

    Cheers

    I'm not sure how safe it would be, but if you really want to be sure that the content hasn't been posted elsewhere, copy a section of the content and paste it into Google. Use the exact match search operator ("") and see if any results come up.

    Did the cloning site and your site indexed in Google? I think Copyscape will return matched result if either your site or the cloning site is indexed.

    I've been using Copyscape for years and it's more accurate and helpful compared to other tools out there. Never had any issues with penalized or whatsoever.

    I do feel that copyscape is pretty safe to use. I have used it several times and it has never let me down!

    "Copyscape " is a tool used to identify the duplicate content. With the help of this tool, you can check whether someone has copied your content without permission.

    Copyscape is a free online tool which is used to find whether article is unique or not. If it is copied you will get original source file too.

    Thanks for this trick. I use copyscape & smalseotools for checking duplicate content but this is better method to check duplicate content directly with google.
