How do I check if my hubs have been duplicated by someone else?
Where on HubPages can I find advice on how to check if my hub content has been copied off and posted elsewhere on the internet?
I've been using the Search box but cannot come up with anything. I'm sure there must be something on this in the HP community. Do you know where? Thanks!
If you think your article as been duplicated somewhere else in its entirety, you might try inputting the title into a search engine to see what pops up.
You can also try Copyscape.com, a free plagiarism checker.
Also try searching for "plagiarism checkers" or a similar search term to see what's available online.
Hope this helps.
If you think it was a full copy by someone else, they may have changed the title. So, take two long sentences from your article and put it in Google search. if your article is out there, google will find it
If the person ran your article thru a Spinner, doing the above search may still identify it depending upon the quality of the Spinner.
