Can we add Copyscape every time we post anew hub? I believe this can prevent plagiarism. Thanks!
It is only possible to add images, not the HTML code required to produce banners.
Unfortunately copyscape doesn’t prevent plagiarism but it does, to some extent, help you spot it.
lol! O yes, I said it wrongly, it does not prevent but it at least help you spot. Thanks Peter!
I thought you said it correctly, because you were talking about the banners, and that is what they are for - to prevent, or at least discourage, plagiarism. Whether or not they are effective in doing that is another matter.
I was simply stating the facts!
Content that is scraped from the web is rarely read first making the presence of a banner entirely academic. The process of finding content through to adding it to splogs etc. is completely automated.
If you think a banner can prevent plagiarism in any significant way you are completely naive.
What the OP called "Plagiarism prevention banners" are clearly intended to prevent or discourage plagiarism. They may be effective in some cases. I am familiar with that they don't have any effectiveness in case of "scraping" and the like.
Setting up Google alerts for unique phrases from your Hubs, blog posts or web pages is probably more effective.
Banners don’t work against plagiarists, never have and never will. I hate plagiarism as much as anyone but sticking up a copyscape banner is not going to deter anyone who has deliberately set out with the intention of stealing your content for their own commercial gain. Anyone who does should think twice about publishing on the web. (unless you write crap that nobody is interested in)
If you are going to write on sites like HubPages you stand a good chance of falling victim to plagiarism even though each hub contains this text ‘Copyright © 2010 HubPages Inc. and respective owners’. These are the facts.
WE I publish in excess of 2000 articles every week, I actually know a thing or two about this. Plagiarism prevention banners simply don’t work at any level.
Thanks Peter Hoggan, that is excellent information and I do respect your knowledge.
The cost of running copyscape on Hubpages would be exorbitant !
Kiss your 60% impression share goodbye!
PH is quite right anyways, this should be common sense - those that dont play by the rules, are not dissuaded so easily.
Thanks Sunforged for such info... I thought Copyscape is free of charge. lol!
Anyway, you're right, no matter what you do, you just can't change the values and principles of people who don't play by the rules by just putting on a banner! All the best!

What is duplicate content?When I get flagged for duplicate content, it kind of breaks my heart, especially when I write something that is totally original - no quotes, no links, etc. I see so many "duplicate" hub oriented hubs and wonder why they exist without being flagged as duplicate...

I have 176 hubs published (all featured). There are 10 copied hubs symbols on my account, BUT, when I do random snippets of my other hubs more than half have been stolen.There is a website which appears to be a landing page. When I check most of my hubs they lead there but there but I cannot find...

What is the best free plagiarism checker?I have used DupliChecker and Plagtracker. Perhaps these sites work well because I have never received duplicate or plagiarism warnings on my hubs. But I wonder if these sites actually catch plagiarism or duplicate contents.

I was reading a forum post about using the Copyscape Plagiarism Checker. I put one of my article URLs in and out popped a bunch of articles using 61% and up of the words. Some articles are copied verbatum. I am noticing that it is extremely hard to figure out where at the article site to send a...
