Being a Blogger, I understand How much pain you might be putting in to make your Blog or website !! But what if some bugger is just copying your content and simply pasting it on his blog and sharing your traffic and money ? May be he is featured in a better place on search Engines than you and Google might think you are creating duplicate content . In these kinda conditions , What are you going to do ? You should report this first to Google as it is life of any website in making it famous .
This page of Digital Millennium Copyright will tell you how to report Copyright infringement . Apart from that one of my friend Kuanhoong has found explained a simple way to report duplicate content to Google .Here it is :
- Go to any adsense ad on the website which is copying your content , where you will be able to find the text , Ads by Google as shown in the figure above .
- Click on it .In the page that loads , at the bottom of it , you can see a link “ Send Google your thoughts on the site or the ads you just saw ” . This form is kind of feedback to Google for the ads they are displaying .
- You can also use this form to file a report to Google by clicking on “Also Report a Violation” link.
- The form will expand asking you whether the issues are with website or ads . Choose among the options which one suites you the most . For reporting Duplicate content , Check on "The website --> The site is hosting/distributing my copyrighted content " and provide any additional information in the box below and Click Submit .
