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.
Good question Vinaya. I don't know about the two sites you mention I only know that plagiarism is rife online and needs to be watched. The bottom line is - it cannot be stopped only deterred! I'm waiting for the day when Google or some other search engine giant comes up with a foolproof way of copyrighting every original article written online! And puts an end to blatant stealing of our words!
Meanwhile - having been a recent victim of plagiarism/stolen content I've been using Copyscape which as you know is not a preventer or catcher, it only allows you to enter a URL. The Hubpages 'copied' icon hasn't worked on any of the hubs that were copied and I got no notcie of duplicate content from Webmasters. I only found out my material was stolen after joining in with a Hubpages forum! Judie B the hubber set the ball rolling by exposing a cheap and tacky website (based in China I think) with loads of stolen hubs just copied out.
You should check the forums for more information because some of your material could be out there copied and stolen. I hope not for your sake. It's not a pleasant feeling!
Good luck, take care.
I found copyscape totally useless. Every search I tried brought up hundreds of other hubs because the program found lots of things that are identical on all the hubs:

Hey Vinaya :-)
I don't know of any other free sites where you can check for plagiarism except for Copyscape and as I said in my comment to chef-de-jour, I found that one useless.
I can, however clear up if DupliChecker and Plagtracker work well. After I read this question, I went to both of those sites to test them. I used some text from my Cocoa Butter article that has been stolen and used by a company that sells cocoa butter - including Amazon.
DupliChecker found 14 instances of my text on the internet.
Plagtracker found only one - my original hub.
Hope that helps ease your mind a bit :-)
I am interested to know the answer, so I will follow the question. So far 4 of my hubs have been copied. I followed all the suggestions given by fellow hubbers but nothing came out. Somehow I feel this can not be stopped in online writing. This is depressing.
I agree with chef-de-jour, that Google should discover some other ways to stop this.
I don't know the answer to this, but am interested in finding out what works best. I will look into the ones you have mentioned. Plagiarism is something I do not every want to be accused of when writing.
I've always used copyscape. It helped me see that my website was being completely copied in an attempt by a competitor to force a duplicate content penalty from google. To say the least they received a cease & desist letter.
I use plagiarism and it comes with number of results for the text u entered. If u check these results, it highlights the text from that particular site that is using your text. Hope it helps you too.

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...

This is puzzling to say the least. One of my hubs, i.e.Product Review : The Yamaha EF2000is Portable Generatorhas been flagged for duplicate content. Yet ONLY the title, NOT the content, is anything other than 100% original work. In fact, it's a blow-by-blow account of our...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

I've rewriiten a HubPages Story after receiving a duplicate post warning. I received another "duplicate post" message. It's not a duplicate post. The new version is almost all new. The only thing I didn't change was the summary and title. What can I do? Is there anyone at Hubpages who can...

I realized today that one of my hubs has been copied and re-published on two different websites. I was looking at my Google Analytics and noticed someone had searched on a complete sentence or two from one of my hubs. When I searched the sentence on Google myself I saw the other websites that...
