Pros
This software helps me a lot to check mine as well as others' content successfully to make sure that it is unique or not. But, if they do something with the pricing, it will be the perfect one.
It helps me a lot when I'm hiring writers, I can quickly detect if they just copied the contents before publishing it on my site. And for me, the price is affordable and it's worth it.
I love this copyscape because when my colleague gives me an article I must check plagiarism on copyscape because I love unique Content.
Cons
You also get charged based on the number of words in your file. The higher the words, the higher the price.
The pricing structure is a bit weird. Instead of just charging per document, they charge per 200 words and then 100 words after.
This software sometimes could not read URLs and asks you to make sure there are the right ones, but the problem is surly form the software side.

Instant Plagiarism Checker

Reviewed 3 years ago

In general experience, I discovered Copyscape the most effective software solution among all different plagiarism checking software programs. The tool helps me a lot to verify my own as well as others' content material efficiently and easily. On the other hand, It allows me to check the copy resources as well which gives me the perfect belonging of content.

Pros

Easy & Simple – The technique of working is very simple. The simple interface of Copyscape allows you to knows how it works from the very first time. Cost-Effective – The price of the tool is extremely minimal and in addition offers some discounts as well. Which is admittedly helpful for somebody who has to confirm plenty of work. Premium credits of Copyscape is also out there in advance by utilizing some particular services. Direct Message Conveys – The tool instantly conveys the services it's offering and the FAQ section is actually useful.

Cons

No Verification – There is not an option to confirm whether all of the sources described have been completely checked or not. No Explanation of sources checked – The tool doesn't inform which sources from which they've checked. No free sign-ups – Usually tools enable free to join a month or so. But Copyscape doesn't do so. So, the consumer has no idea what he's investing in or how genuine the companies supplied are.

#1 Tool To Check and Improve Duplicate/Plagiarize Content

Reviewed 2 months ago

Copyscape is an essential tool for anyone with website content or other materials. Copyscape helps me protect my client's websites, web pages, and PDFs from getting plagiarized. With Copyscape, I can be sure that my digital content remains unique and original. Copyscape can scan virtually any type of digital file to detect plagiarism, letting you know when someone has duplicated your work without permission....

Pros

Copyscape is an incredibly useful tool for anyone who writes content or creates presentations. It quickly scans websites and databases to check for any potential cases of plagiarism, allowing users to quickly detect if their material has been copied elsewhere. Copyscape also comes with a host of features that make it easy to use. For instance, I especially appreciate being able to exclude particular...

Cons

Copyscape is, without a doubt, an invaluable resource for those invested in preventing plagiarism and protecting their content. But as helpful as Copyscape can be, it’s far from perfect. The first major frustration I encountered with Copyscape is the price; as a point-based system, Copyscape charges per page or block of text, making it prohibitively expensive for those running large operations or producing...

Copyscape is losing grip against GPT3, Dramatic Improvement Needed

Reviewed 9 months ago

I have been using Copyscape for almost six years now. It used to be the best available tool on the internet to test against plagiarism. But the experience is not going par when the pinned content now come by going through GPT3 technology.

Pros

Copyscape is the most popular and trusted software in the SEO industry for plagiarism checking. It's easy to handle software with advanced levels of web filtration against possible copies over the internet. The best part of this software is that you can directly integrate API calls.

Cons

Copyscape is rapidly losing its grip against GPT3. As the GPT3 was released and gained improvements, it created terabytes of data that need to be processed against plagiarism. I tried various GPT3 contents in Copyscape, and most of them successfully evaded the screening.

Best Plagiarism Checker on the Market

Reviewed 16 days ago

Excellent plagiarism checker tool for all.

Pros

Copyscape is the best plagiarism checker tool for content marketers, and this is my go-to tool. Its pricing is decent and very simple to use. If you're hiring freelance writers for your niche website content, make sure you check them with Copyscape to verify whether they are original or copied from different sources. This tool is also handy for academic writing, or anywhere you need to check for the uniqueness of your content. I trust this tool more than anything else on the market for plagiarism checking.

Cons

Don't like the credit expiration system. If you forget to use your purchased credit within the expiration date, you can't use them anymore.

Excellent search result

Reviewed 4 years ago

Irrespective of what copyscape charge for each search, the software is excellent in searching throughout the web for plagiarism. I have been able to avoid plagiarism and also getting my content rejected by clients.

Pros

I'm a freelance writer and I also self publish, so I make use of copyscape all the time. The App is so easy to use, all I need to do is just copy my content, paste on the site and click on premium search. The search result shows you plagiarized sentences and also gives you a link of the website to compare. Copyscape enables you to rewrite parts of your article in order to have a original content.

Cons

The free trial doesn't give you a complete result. You need to get the premium package in order to get a complete and comprehensive search result. You also get charged based on the number of words in your file. The higher the words, the higher the price.
