Hey - when you publish a post, a circle appears spinning around to check your post. When it states " checking content unique" and it then publishes onto your website, does that mean your content IS unique, ALL your own words/content and therefore in no way copied by other content??
Any other way to check your article's authenticity?

Good question and some helpful answers. Neither do I agree it is 100% accurate, but I think its a good indicator that it broadly is.

Have a great day.

I'd just like to add Farah that even with all the checks it's not easy to be totally unique. After all , the ideas we use in our blogs have all been taught to us from someone else. With the millions of people writing blogs today there is always a chance you may write something similar to someone else, it's called the law of averages. ( PS I'm a mathematical person, not a writer). Jim

Yeah, the fact that we do use other people's info/ideas to help with our own content is alone obvious that people's blogs can be similar... Very good point! And insightful.

Hi - I have to say, that I don't believe that Site Content works properly as regards duplicate content. I often provide feedback on websites here, and using my own plagiarism checker, have found posts that are entirely copied and pasted, yet this has not been picked up. I have also experimented by deliberately publishing copied content on my practice site, and this was allowed through.

As long as you know yourself that you have not purposely copied and pasted anything, then you should be fine. Realistically, a small percentage, up to 5%, could be duplicate, simply because we all use everyday terms and phrases, which you can't help but repeat sometimes.

I don't believe SiteContent is totally accurate either, but in a different way. Often when I post very original content (ie: using my own examples) it will say it's not unique. However, change just one word or create a new paragraph, and it accepts it.

I dont believe Site content works properly either! I always ensure all my contents are in my own words but always want to double check this. Can I just ask what kind of plagiarism checker that you do use anyway? Is it free?
Very helpful info, thanks a lot.

I use the premium version of Grammarly. It is not free, but I use it every day in my work as a professional writer and proofreader, so I need the upgraded option.

There are other free checkers available if you do a quick Google search.

Yes, I also use premium Grammarly. But I like to also check through Copyscape. As a writer, I am very careful not to step on others' words, so to speak.
For most writing, free Grammarly is good, though.
All the best-
Diane
