Content Plagiarism: Keed a record of who all you gave permission to copy your articles

This post is not so relevant for a large number of bloggers who publish their content only on their own blog, and do not syndicate or otherwise give permission to other sites or blogs to copy the content. There are many bloggers who allow others to copy part or all of their content, and get content from the other side. There are some advantages to doing such exchanges, since you get more rich content, and as long as you don’t copy too many times from the same source, you will find that Google and other search engines do not punish you for duplicate content.
The downside of such arrangements is that if you have spent years blogging, and are an active blogger who has written many hundreds of posts or even thousands of posts, there will be many such sites that you may have made an arrangement with. Human memory can fail a person at times, and can forget many such arrangements, so always make sure that when you have made such arrangements with other sites, you maintain a record elsewhere with details about the contact details of the person at the other end, with details of the article that was allowed to be copied, details about the date, the name of the other site where your content is going to be hosted (along with the exact URL of the copied content).
Such a mechanism helps you to make sure that you do not send out a wrong email to another site where your content has seemingly appeared; it may be that you have made an arrangement some time back, and now don’t recall it after so many years.
