    Hello,

    I've got a quick question in regards of plagiarism and copied content.
    So far I've understood that the only way to create unique content is by handwriting it all yourself, but now here comes my main concern. After spending hours to develop a 100% unique and attractive page (5k+ words so far), ranked at #1, I am concerned about others copying my content.

    So, what happens when people copy your content for their own purposes? As I imagine, copyscape will detect the copied content.
    "Do you get penalized for this?" or "Does Google perhaps detect who wrote it first and penalize whoever copied it?"

    Is there any form of protection other than work on your content on a daily basis? Obviously this constant updates on your content could negatively affect on site SEO...


    Anyways, would really appreciate some comments.
    Thanks in advance!

    of course it does, if it indexes that unique content in your website first, it belongs to you. Period

    Reyone,

    As mentioned by Romeo, if your content is indexed first, Google sees that as the right page. If it comes across another page with a substantial portion of the same content, it knows that it's a duplicate and does not index it. Just make sure you are submitting that content asap after you write it.

    Another approach you could take is to create a Google plus profile for yourself and link it to the Google Authorship program. That way when you write something, after it is indexed it is linked to you and even if someone does get it indexed, at least you won't be tied to some other spammy site.

    More about authorship,

    https://plus.google.com/authorship

    Hope that helps,
    Shawn

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    /e: one more quick question. Once your page is indexed, does all the content you put in get indexed automatically or does it need to be approved by G.

    yes, it will get Indexed automatically in accordance with your blog/site - page rank, authority, etc.. High PR blogs get indexed quicker while compared to PR0, PR1.. In fact it gets indexed but takes time.

    https://plus.google.com/authorship great way to protect your content

    it might take as long as few days to get your content indexed, some smart ass bots can easily copy your (still not indexed content) and publish it as theirs and ping it to death to get it indexed faster than in your website. In that case - you are screwed
