Not long ago I talked  about how to create content for your blog or rather, how to inspire you to create content related to the interests of your audience. The problem is that sometimes your content is so great that others copy it.  Duplicate content and content plagiarism hurts your site in many ways and it’s not just SEO.

Although at first this was not a problem, today it is because it affects your site in a very negative way, All the work you put into SEO could be damaged because of Plagiarism. For example if your content goes viral you will find copies of your content in blog feeds and sometimes even copied and pasted onto others blog. When this happens the internal links in your post become inbound links from many other sites if you get to many of the same inbound links it alerts google that you are trying to spam the system and you will get penalized.
