How To Check For External and Internal Duplicate Contents On Your Blog Using Copyscape and Siteliner


Duplicate contents in blogging refers to contents (Post and Pages) copied from another site with or without permission. Duplicate contents are of two types and they include Internal and External.

External Duplicate Contents include those contents copied from other site with or without permission. While internal duplicate contents deals with contents copied from same site. Internal duplicate contents occurs in blogging when a blogger or domain owner wants to make flash back of a particular Post ad an update to readers or viewers.

If a blog is having duplicate contents, it is very bad and might lead to having issues with his  or her blog. These kind of issues include not getting traffic from the content you copied externally, not getting approved by Google AdSense especially in the country you are.

If you are one who copies contents from other site without paraphrasing, you are bringing issues to your blog. However, I made this tutorial for you to check if your blog or site has duplicate contents externally and internally and here, we are making use of two tools named Copyscape and Siteliner.

If you want to check if your blog has external duplicate contents, you have to make use of copyscape and for internal duplicate contents, use Siteliner.
