Copy Space

  1. Hi Friends,
    I just left copy space and notice that I have been copied by a group of sites that do not have any of my material on their web sites, only html code. The sites are as follows. Can anyone give me a heads up on how to proceed?

  2. I do not see how any of these relate to your blog. Could you be more specific? Also, please edit your post to close the < / em > tag

  3. Hi Raincoaster,
    I know nothing of html so I am unable to do what you are asking. Per you question, none of these relate to my blog, but they still show up in copy space as having copied my material. Go figure. None of their blogs -- when I visit their blogs-- have any of my material presented. Could you please visit several of the above web sites and advice how to proceed? Thank you my friend.

  4. I'm afraid I haven't got time tonight. I don't know how Copyscape works.

    For the record, when you copied all of that from Copyscape, you grabbed some HTML tags and that's why all the writing is italicized. Try just adding the HTML I showed you up there, but take the spaces between the pointy brackets and the text out. I tried, but I can't do it. I think it has to be you.

  5. Raincoaster,
    I do not know how to do what you are suggesting in your last comment.

  6. If you were copied, then they must have a course of action on copyscape to look at Craig.

  7. Craig,

    Copyscape has a guide for responding to plagiarism here:

  8. @secondchance
    I don't think you have anything to worry about. It appears that somehow copyscape has picked up html that is common to your page and to the other pages and as you state in your original post, NOT actual content.

  9. Thank you for your help in this matter. I appreciate your help. Very interesting that similiar html code can trigger copyscrape. I will trust your judgement on this matter.

    Have a great day!

    Craig

  10. Yeah, that seems strange to me as well and I haven't the foggiest as to why that is.
