    isnt copyscape like the big website that anything has to pass? im going thru PLR articles now because i dont write, i always just used copyscape. you can only search for so many a day so i use another site but it starts finding a lot more sites with duplicate content. copyscape will will search and find nothing while any other site will find the duplicate content

    Copyscape could not find duplicate content? I would be surprised.

    Which was the other site that found duplicate content Copyscape could not?

    They all have indexed different parts of the internet and have their own algorithms, I wouldn't be surprised at all if different tools brought up different results.

    Copyscape seems to be everyones go to tool, it doesn't mean it's the best though.

    You Can Think Of The More Tools You Use The More You Are Confused

    I actually still haven't found a better solution to copyscape, i usually use copyscape then copy each paragraph into G search, sometime it shows some interesting result.

    That happened to me too, mate. I think Copyscape only detects duplicate content on sites that have already been indexed. Other plagiarism tools like plagium cover almost everything published.

    Honestly, you should never rely solely on one site when checking copyright. The more sites you use the more likely you are to ensure your content doesn't have any copyright issues. Following with a quick google search after you have cleared your content through a few copyright sites isn't a bad idea either.

    @tunescool some days late to answer, but I use smallseotools plagiarism checker and it's working like charm. It's free and requires G captcha.
    You can use both now.
