How to Protect Your Website from Plagiarism
The WordPress Protection Plugin offers you complete security for a WordPress site so that you can ensure that data remains secure and plagiarists are not able to copy and steal your data and images off your WordPress pages.
Use the WordPress Protection Plugin (Lite), to block Keyboard Shortcuts (like CTRL+V, CTRL+A, CTRL+C, and CTRL+X), and disable the text-selection, and it will also block the use of right click on your website. You can also purchase the full professional version of WordPress Protection Plugin.
The plugin features:
* It disables keyboard shortcuts such as cut, copy and paste
* It disables text-selection
* It is fully optimized
* It doesn’t compromise you in for the search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing, who will still pickup your content.
* It disables image drag and drop
The professional WordPress Protection Plugin offers many many features that the lite does not, so you may want to explore that further.
That’s one way to stop your blog from becoming a victim of plagiarism, which is theft! Another thing you can do is create a writing style that is very personal and very recognizable and keep your blog posts long. This will deter thieves as they prefer more generic looking content.
Your blog is actually protected by copyright laws the minute you publish it but it doesn’t hurt to also mention it on each post. This should be adequate to discourage potential thieves stealing your content. If you would like to take it a step further, you can register your blog with the U.S. Copyright Office, and create a Creative Commons license, but you don’t really have to take this action, it’s just an option for further discouragement.
You can also use plagiarism sites like Copyscape to make sure your content isn’t elsewhere on the web. It will search for content that is identical or similar and then provide you with a link to that content. Handy tools these programs are.
You should watermark all of your images in a location that is difficult for the thief to cut off or cover over. This will help to protect your images from theft. There are a number of programs that can help you with this task.
If you find that your content has been plagiarized you need to immediately contact that website and provide them the information. Ask them to remove the content or provide credit to you by linking back to your blog.
