Instant Plagiarism Checker

Reviewed 4 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 years 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.

Excellent search result

Reviewed 5 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.

The Best Plagiarism Checker

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have run more than 100k articles through CopyScape over the last 10 years. I have tried to find a replacement, but I always run back to CopyScape. My volume these days is way lower though. But back in the heyday of Google Adsense sites, I ran a LOT of content through.

Pros

It is super easy to use. You just copy / paste an article in to the textbox, hit the button "Premium Search" and it will instantly tell you if your content is original or not. I have had hundreds of freelance workers producing content for me over the years. More than half of them have tried to submit content with huge sections they blatantly stole from other websites. So having this tool, has saved me a lot of hassle and money.

Cons

It is a bit expensive. Yes, I save money by not paying for plagiarized content, but it runs up when you bulk check content. For a single website or a content writer, this would not be a huge problem, but I seem to have to pull out my credit card way too often :) I was interested in trying out their CopySentry function as well, but it would be WAY too expensive.

The Best Solution to Ensure 100% Original Content

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've been using Copyscape since 2010, when I started my career as a copywriter. It helped me check and ensure the originality of thousands of articles, blog posts, and product reviews, summarizing hundreds of thousands, if not millions of words. I still use it regularly to check my blogs for AM Navigator and help affiliates with their content. Throughout time, some of the clients preferred other...

Pros

I love the affordable price, the ease of use, and the accuracy of the results provided. It doesn't trigger false alerts and doesn't highlight common keyword combinations like other tools do. I also like the fact that it asks for confirmation when reviewing texts longer than 2000 words, making it easy to keep costs under control and avoid accidents, like wanting to check one chapter and copying and pasting an entire book.

Cons

I don't think it's Copyscape's fault and I don't know if there's anything they can do about it but, sometimes, when it finds duplicate content on several websites, you have to check the matches for each source, because you'll have some phrases on one website and other phrases on another website. It's logical, understandable, but a little annoying. I also hate it when I get alerts for technical, very specific terms that don't leave room for rephrasing and interpretation, but, again, these are not really faults of the software but rather small mishaps all writers face and all software options identify.

Best Plagiarism Checker on the Market

Reviewed 2 years 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.

I use Copyscape daily

Reviewed 5 years ago

Love it! Don't love paying for it, but love it nonetheless.

Pros

I love this software! You can either plug in a website or you can insert your own text and the software will crawl the web looking for exact matches to text you've input. My clients ask me to use Copyscape to ensure I'm submitting 100% original content, and I've asked freelancers to use it as well. It's super easy to use and relatively low cost. I recommend Copyscape to writers and to clients alike.

Cons

The price of Copyscape keeps going up! Also, sometimes the software can actually be too sensitive, returning results that are completely unrelated to the original text. For instance, you may be writing a fishing guide and input a sentence like, "the water will become your home away from home" and Copyscape will return results from a website about, say, body mass index or travelling to Georgia. That said, the sensitivity of the product is a plus when you're trying to fend off writers who aren't submitting original content.

One of the Best Plagiarism Checker

Reviewed 5 years ago

While talking about an overall experience, I found Copyscape the best software among all other plagiarism checking software. 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.

Pros

I like Copyscape and I love Copyscape Premium. It enables me to check the originality of my articles whether the content is unique or not. It detects the duplicate content perfectly. It is quite easy to use as you just have to copy the content into the Search Bar and it will let you know about the results at the bottom of the page.

Cons

While everyone thinks that it is a great software. But, I guess if they have a package of unlimited searches, it will be the best among all. Also, I am not very happy with the pricing. I have to use this software on a daily basis, so it should offer unlimited searches for the same price.

I’ve used Copyscape for over 15 years and haven’t found another tool like it!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I was first introduced to Copyscape when it started in 2004, as I was in college. When I began a freelance writing career five years later, it became something I’d use weekly. Many clients ask for you to submit the results along with your content, so that they don’t have to go behind you to check your work. However, since plagiarism is so rampant these days, I’ve also begun checking my own work for the purpose of ensuring that no one is copying it without crediting me. I love this site and don’t know what I’d do without it!

Pros

I’ve never found a more thorough plagiarism detection tool that Copyscape. Not only does it give you a list on sites with similar content, if you pay for premium searches, it also compares the text to offline content as well. Should a new site arise that matches the text, you can have them alert you.

Cons

I really can’t think of any cons for this service. I mean, I would love if it were free, but the cost for basic content (academic papers may be another story) is so cheap that there’s really no reason not to use the premium features.

Search engine for finding duplicate content on the web

Reviewed 2 years ago

Copyscape is a great tool to have on hand when we're writing content for our clients. If we're worried about copy being stolen, Copyscape is a tool that we can use to find out whether or not the content we're writing might be getting plagiarized. our client will appreciate it and we'll know for sure that we're not taking someone's work and passing it off as our own.

Pros

I was looking for a way to check if my content was being republished somewhere else and I found this. Copyscape is a search engine for finding duplicate content on the web. It's great for finding out if someone has stolen our content or if we have a similar post somewhere else on the web. It's easy to use and very affordable.

Cons

I use Copyscape to make sure that I don't have duplicate content issues on my site. After I do a post for a client, I run it through Copyscape to make sure that I don't have duplicate content on the site. If I do, I go in and fix it. I do this for every new post I make.

Every Freelance Writer Should Use Copyscape

Reviewed 5 years ago

If anyone works in freelance writing than using Copyscape is a necessity because clients want originality guarantees and Copyscape provides that.

Pros

Copyscape is a free plagiarism checker that also offers a premium option. As a whole both free and premium service allows the user to check the originality of content. Although their premium service allows users to enter written content that has not been posted and check for online plagiarism. Another awesome feature is the number of languages Copyscape supports. For example, written content published in French but copied and pasted into Copyscape in English will yield a plagiarized result. Lastly, my favorite feature is how easy Copyscape is to use, simply copy and paste content and results appear within 10 seconds.

Cons

My only complaint would be the price. It can get pricey to do a search. Instead of charging per document It's 3c per search (up to 200 words) plus 1c per extra 100 words.

Don't Let Plagiarism Win!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Copyscape is a great tool to use when screening content. You probably might want to double check it in person though just in case. Overall though, it's a nice tool that you can trust. You can way less instances where your copy was... copied... and you're also sure that the people who write content for you REALLY write content for you.

Pros

It's very easy to use and helps you out when you need to find similar articles if you're writing something specific. It's pretty accurate and for the price, you get great value especially because it keeps you away from plagiarizing other peoples works.

Cons

It's basically a text duplication tool and there are some instances where it flags your copy even though it's legit. Some areas and subjects are usually similar in nature and Copyscape probably can't distinguish that. I've had an experience where I wrote something from scratch and had a 70ish rating which didn't make sense to me since I literally wrote it from scratch.
