    This new guy I hired writes too fast it's almost unreal. He's not native English speaker, but the quality is acceptable.

    I post the article on my blog and checked with copyscape, no duplicate found.

    I am still skeptical though.... is there any other better way to check if he's copying off content from else where?

    Have you done a simple search of google with a few lines of the text ? Usually this works for me an I'm happy to go ahead.

    i tried , couldn't find anything.
    i have premium copyscape account but can't find anything either

    Could he possibly be copying from new website pages that hasn't been indexed yet? I read somewhere copyscape can't detect freshly made content that hasn't been indexed or something.

    Anyone~?

    I know where he may be getting it from - but I'm not telling.

    I shared it in JrVIP and it was moved to ExecVIP - so I can't even see it anymore. But if it is that method don't worry - it's not dupe content.

    copyscape can only detect copies if the text has been cached by google. try him with a weird topic.

    There's a software called "Plagiarism Detector" that is a step ahead of copyscape's algorithm. I use it for all the articles I buy. It'll give you phrases in the article that appear on the net.

    This is the best plagiarism checker, in my opinion its better then copy scape and any other plagerism checker. Sometimes where i re-write and article and checker other plagiarism sites it passes as OK but this one finds the copied content.
