    Im trying to rewrite articles that I find online, but I want to know how people use copyscape to test how plagiarized your article is. Ive seen people on the forums posting that its good to have it above 70% unique, but how can I test it? When I go to copyscape, it just lets me search a url and not enter the text of my article.

    Why don't you just post your article on some free host and upload your re-written article? Then go go copyscape and enter the URL. It will then check to see if it is unique.

    I want to be writing a lot of articles, and it would be easier if I could just enter the article somewhere and get instant feedback. I think the link posted above will be the most helpful.

    70% no, 30% minimum but i don't pass the test 33% of time with copyscape. With 45-50% I pass copyscape without problem.


    Yep, i make that, just a little file "test.html" on my server and i put my article in before test with copysacpe.

    If I was you, I would still use copyscape. Dupecop only checks your re-written article against the original article you supply. Copyscape compares it against many similar articles.

    blachhatnoob: Do you have something against unloading your article to the web for a few minutes while copyscape runs the test? I don't think you understand the way copyscape works. Dupecop checks for unique content against another article. Against the article you supply to it. Copyscape checks your article against many different articles. You don't have to supply it with another article. It compares it against similar articles it has indexed in the past.

    Ok, Ill try and use both. Does copyscape have a tool like the one on dupecorp where you can type in an article and it checks it against the web?

    Try this tool to check duplicate content over the entire Web. I use this over Copyscape...since it is free and we can check multiple times without any limitations:
    Code:

    Enjoy !
