In addition, you can hire a firm to check for your duplicate content, a somewhat costly procedure.. Placing words from your title into a Google alert may bring plagiarism in the form of an email from Google, originating from the plagiarized site. Duplicate content issues have probably happened to thousands of people, but that does not make it right.
When you find a duplicate of an article, the first option is to write a takedown notice. You must locate the host of the site by running the URL of the website in a whois directory, such as domaintools.com.
