    I asked a question on a post that I felt like investigating on my own. It was regarding Google Chrome extensions and whether or not anyone had ever tried any extensions that could check for copied content. I just found one I wanted to share with all Chrome users. It is called PlagSpotter Duplicate Content Checker and although I just downloaded it, it has great reviews.

    Extension description "PlagSpotter ( is a duplicate content detection and monitoring tool. Our Chrome app allows users to easily and quickly conduct a duplicate content check by checking the page that the user is currently on for duplicate content. The app will return the results showing the duplicate content % as well as the list of all external sites/sources that duplicate the current page. There is also a way to view a detailed report for each URL as well."

      Question Kathleen: Is there any malware, virus, etc. that downloads with it?

    So, I try out this tool. The first hub I try has 10 places it has been copied. I just took care of all the sites it was on a month ago.

    II'm spending more time taking care of copied content than writing. What is the deal with so much copied content? We didn't always have such a problem.
