I really support the fight against plagiarism but AI ( our SiteContent and Grammarly) are becoming the pain in the neck. Those two "inquisitors" labeled below listed sentences and parts of sentences as plagiarism:
-At the very beginning of my quest for
-It can be quite overwhelming to make a
-If you choose something you are passionate about
-After much trial and error, I came to
-The best way to accomplish this is by
My post is about affiliate marketing and according to Grammarly, I am taking the above listed from various texts which are not even remotely connected with the topic of affiliate marketing like a religious text, home repair, fitness, repelling insects and cooking.

Do you have similar problems? What do you do? Do you rewrite?

When you’re creating your own content, those warnings can be ignored. It’s set up to stop those who are copying and pasting from other sites passing off someone else’s content as their own :) When you’re creating your own content there is no penalty and no need to rearrange or change sentence patterns.

I agree too. I have it a little differently. My product has content based on fact. It is called, 'common knowledge". If you were writing about a famous person, then facts are common; birthdate; marriage; his accomplishments and so forth. There is no way to put it in your own words. I just research and take notes on factual information. But I do not copy and print the material. I do write it on my own. Do you think I will be okay with that? Being a paralegal, I do know about common knowledge, but not very well.

I think a lot of people have been worried about the plagiarism sites.

That’s nothing to worry about. Keep putting together quality content and you’ll be just fine.

Hi Alex!

For me, my paid version of Grammarly does not run in Site Content. Therefore, are you typing directly into Site Content or elsewhere and pasting into Site Content?

If so, maybe that is an issue?

HI Howard, you are correct. It doesn't .

I write my posts in Grammarly and than copy/paste them in SiteContent.
English is not my native language and Grammarly helps a lot .

I wonder if the copy and paste feature triggers more scrutiny.

How about type in Site Content, copy to something like Microsoft Word which Grammarly runs there, and then correct in Site Content based on what it recommends.

Just a thought . . . . . Ouch! LOL

Actually, my main point is that we rely more and more on Artificial intelligence ( if we can call SiteContent and Grammarly that) but it still has long way to go.

Unfortunately, once AI becomes really good we, as content creators, will become obsolete.

Until then, we will just have to use way around

I do not use Site Comment except once. I use the way I was taught here beginning in late 2016.

I go to add new on the Posts dashboard and simply write my content. I can review and edit the new post using Grammarly.

I have Grammarly for everything except the paid part which is, I believe, the plagiarism checker; the other one is free.

Thanks, a lot of people really needed this posting.

I don’t think I have ever had a duplicate content display in Site content and yet I always have the same sign off and also the same “I am an affiliate message”
I am always expecting it but it never happens.
With Grace and Gratitude

I found out the other day that site content was saying I was copying my own content... I tend to finish my blog posts all in the same manner,saying pretty much the same thing - A call to action, but it didn't like it. I changed my last paragraph to make it a little different, and it went through. :)

I find this errors when I write blogs too, I work around it, I make quotations of it, or when that doesn't help, I make a screenshot, when published, you can restore it again. In the original text.

For I am very sure, I didn´t plagiarize anything, with billions of websites, it´s obvious someone, somewhere has almost the same sentences.

I do not use site comment. What are the advantages over posting directly from the dashboard?
