WP Plagiarism Pal Plugin
Google’s Panda algorithm update shook the blogging world, lowering the ratings of almost 12% of the sites on the internet. WP Plagiarism Pal can keep you from upsetting Panda by catching inadvertent duplicate content.
In a Google Blog post that Amit Singhal and Matt Cutts posted on February 24,
“This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful. At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites—sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.”
Amit Singhal offered this blog post with advice on how sites can be evaluated in light of Panda. It appears to be the same list of (or a subset of the) questions that were given to the quality raters last year.
- Does the site have duplicate, overlapping, or redundant articles on the same or similar topics with slightly different keyword variations?
- Does this article have spelling, stylistic, or factual errors?
- Are the topics driven by genuine interests of readers of the site, or does the site generate content by attempting to guess what might rank well in search engines?
- Does the article provide original content or information, original reporting, original research, or original analysis?
- Is the content mass-produced by or outsourced to a large number of creators, or spread across a large network of sites, so that individual pages or sites don’t get as much attention or care?
- Was the article edited well, or does it appear sloppy or hastily produced?
The emphasis has clearly shifted to quality unique content.
Plagiarism Pal catches duplicate content
Plagiarism Pal searches the internet for phrases in your posts that may duplicate phrases on other sites. It doesn’t matter that you may never have heard of that site and the phrase was your own. We reuse information we’ve heard or read constantly. Google only cares about duplication. Many Article sites are following Google’s lead and are checking for the uniqueness of your articles.
Plagiarism Pal catches sites stealing your posts.
Once you’ve created a unique post there are thousands of other sites just waiting to scrape your site and post your articles as their own. Plagiarism Pal can find these sites for you. Just run the duplicate check after your post has been indexed and they will appear as duplicates.
Easy to use
After you save a draft or publish a post or page click the Check for Duplicate Content” button and a list will be created of phrases that are then searched on the internet. The list will be displayed showing which phrases may be troublesome.
Note how Plagiarism Pal catches the
quotation in this article as a duplicate.
Then click the link and you’ll be taken to the search for that phrase so you can check just what was duplicated.
To check for others copying your posts, after your post has been up for a while, clear the results and re-check. Any one with a copy on their site should appear in the search. You can check if it was an outright copyright or just a quotation.
By default Plagiarism Pal uses Google to search. But other search engines are supported
Google Blog Search
Bing Blog Search
A list of excluded sites can be entered, so you won’t search the originating or any syndicated sites that may have you’re posts.
