There are people on the internet who are not willing to put in the hard work themselves; they simply want ready-made content and think they can get away with it. These are the individuals who copy your meticulously written content or outright steal it. To protect your website from such individuals, you need to take the necessary precautions.
The internet is a realm where everything is susceptible to being exploited, and even if your website has security measures in place, there are individuals who might still attempt to plagiarize your content. Don’t be alarmed by this, as it won’t cause significant harm to your website. The damage is inflicted upon the person who copied your content. After all, your article is already ranked on Google, and if someone copies it, their website won’t achieve a high rank on Google.
So, stay vigilant and safeguard your hard-earned content from plagiarism.
How To Protect Your Website Content
Today, I’m going to explain to all of you how you can remove copied content from the Google search engine if someone has plagiarized your hard-written content. If any website has copied content from your website, you need to inform Google that you have written that content yourself and that your website’s content is original, while the content on the other website is duplicate.
Just conveying this information to Google is not enough to have a website removed from the search engine. First, Google performs cross-verification. As you might know, Google’s team and search engine are highly intelligent. They meticulously investigate each aspect and detail. If they determine that a different website has genuinely copied your content, they will remove that content from the search engine results.
So, it’s crucial to understand that Google’s process is thorough and well thought-out. They don’t take action based solely on claims but conduct a comprehensive examination before taking any action.
“And then, the website that had copied your content receives a kind of copyright strike. As a result, that website is never allowed to rank on Google’s search engine again. Furthermore, AdSense also permanently bars it from its platform.
This ensures that the website that engaged in content-copying faces serious consequences and is effectively excluded from both search engine rankings and AdSense. This action is taken to safeguard original content creators and maintain the integrity of search engine results.
