How can i know someone uses my post (content)?

Is it possible to check whether my post is copied or used?

If you copy your post content into a Google search box and place quotation marks before and after, you should find any copies of your post which have been indexed by Google.

My personal favorite.

If you have large amount of articles (100's, 1000's) you might want to consider the services of copyscape

Include internal links within your posts to other articles on your site then set up Google alerts for your domain name. Some thieves are lazy, they don't change the internal links.

Internal linking is good for your SEO so you should be doing this anyways.

Check this link http://www.google.com/support/bin/st...5#notification

It can investigate your specific inquiry and resolve it as quickly as possible.

- You can place links in your content (with trackbacks), so, in case your content is being copied you will get notified.

- Search your content snippets in Google

- Use copyscape to check content duplication

I recommend you to use copyscape.com. It will provide exact results whereas Google search is also a better option but it shows the percentage of the copied text also..

Copyscape is not free. Anybody know of a free reliable dup content checker?

Actually, there is a free option right on Copyscape's homepage. It will check to see if your web page has been copied anywhere else on the internet.

The paid version of Copyscape is what you use to see if something's been plagiarized before you publish it (ie: copying and pasting a Word document to see if it matches anything else on the web). And even though it isn't free, it's incredibly cheap - only a few cents a search.

Do you have any new tools to add to this thread? It seems this thread is starting to sound like a broken record.

The best 3 tools are:
1) copyscape (not free but low cost)
2) quoted google searches
3) google alerts

A combination of these will help you monitor your content.
But don't expect to be able to remove much of it. I have some content free on the web that is being sold by some of these "essay" firms - they run dozens of mirror sites and only remove the one article per email you send from one site - they are not to be trusted and difficult to work with.

the best think to do is as others have said - insert links in the text. in addition use your site name in the text of the article and to really protect your IP when writing bullets write with the first letter of each line spelling your name or other name (i.e. FIRST):
* For every .....
* In case of emergency...
* Risks are important....
* Stand by your.....
* Together we are....

Yes it is very simple. You can use copy scape to check your article. If you want to do it free of cost then cut some lines of your article and put in the Google search bar and you will get the results

I agree, copy scape is probably the best option to check duplicate content and see if your articles have been snatched by someone else.

Other alternatives are also good like;
Code:

Some really good methods here which I didn't know. My current method was that of WebsiteFreeway utilizing Google's powerful SE. In a way, stealing of contents is a tough, and more so prevalent, problem in the Internet since it's easy as copying and pasting.

There are actually methods of using that to your advantage, though I can't find it anywhere in my bookmarks at the moment.
