Protect Your Website from Content Theft



You worked hard to create a unique website, optimize content for top search position, and skillfully use social media to promote your site. You may be worried about someone else taking advantage of your hard work. Let's look at some of the ways you can protect your site from content thieves.

First and foremost, make sure your website includes a copyright notice. Check out this page to find out how to write the copyright symbolon your keyboard. Don't forget to add the year after the copyright symbol and date individual posts.

Next, you can watermark your images with a service like PicMark. Then, if someone copies one of your images, your contact information will go with it.

Another common tactic is the "no right click" script. However, many people find this annoying and there are several ways to work around it.

Another popular tool is Copyscape. You can check your original content to make sure the search bots won't classify it as plagiarism. However, Copyscape bases its analysis on three-word phrases and apparently can't distinguish between plagiarism and direct, properly -attributed quotes. Furthermore, common phrases such as "red, white, and blue" can trigger an alert. You can also set up Copyscape to notify you if another site copies your work.

If you have identified a violation of your copyright, you can send a DMCA takedown noticeto have the site removed from Google search results.

While you can attempt to stay on top of copyright issues yourself, it may be easier to retain a service such as Guardlex’swebsite content protection to monitor your site and deal with copyright issues on your behalf. This will give you more time to focus on developing and marketing your site.

Many webmasters worry about the "duplicate content penalty," fearing that they will be penalized for having the same content as another site. One of the best ways to avoid that is to update your site frequently with quality original content. By constantly changing your site, you make it very difficult to copycats to keep up.

Finally, if you notice that certain topics are popular with content thieves, you may be able to creatively turn the tables and position yourself as an expert by freely sharing that type of content with free e-books, auto responder reports, guest posts, and participation in article banks.
