Copyright Infringement Notice… Sent my first one today :D
So, I have been monitoring SERPs for content that looks similar to mine, and found a website that TOTALLY copied my article word for word, and posted it on their blog, with no mention of my website or anything…
So, I sent my first Copyright Notice today, and will be writing a post about it within the next 48 hours to see how it pans out
The post will be about how to get copyright infringements removed from Google SERPs, and other actions you can take to streamline the process.
That’s all for now!
So I got a reply from Google that they need some more information.. Apparently, the owner of the site saw *this* post and changed some of the content. Luckily enough, we have Google Cache and I was able to retrieve the previous website’s content… Here’s what it looked like when I sent in my Removal Notice to Google:
And here’s my post. See the content in the red square. This auto-blogger was too lazy to even change any of my text off the bat!
Google replied that they will research some more. I believe they will find that my blog was not the only one that got ripped off by this noob. Hopefully the entire website gets de-indexed. That would serve this idiot right for plagiarizing content without giving credit…
Google has removed the offender’s post and has red-flagged his website. Let this be a warning to all – copyright infringements without attribution are not a healthy thing for your website.
