Hmmmmm how sad, i guess you need to take the pain of editing your content and reconstructing some of your sentences and paragraphs.

Meanwhile let's hear from the Boss if it actually will have such an effect.

If trully these content was copied from your site,did the person not link to your site at the end of his/her post? Because I believed if that content first appeared on your site, then your site must have been indexed first.

And maybe you did not do much of on and off page optimization well that was the reason the site was ranking more than yours.

@Grace and Adetutu. The problem is beyond normal. The site that copied my content is a forum. The forum is using one of its member to republished my original article immediately I publish them. They have republished 14 out of 26 original articles I have on my site. Please Boss and everybody help me, i can't eat and sleep well since yesterday. I have spent lots of time and money putting this article together. I'm very sad.

I think that site in question, are found of copyright infridgement. Yesterday, i issued a threat warning to the admin to remove all my content on their site before the ending of the next 3 business days or else his adsense account will be temporarily suspended.
I have vowed to take this up to google if my contents are still resident on his site. The most painful aspect of it is that, they don't even edit anything before pasting it online. Instead, they paste it the way i posted mine.

@Ojekunle, you don't need to worry about this unscropulous element site call Naijafinder. I will teach you ways of preventing copy cat from copying all your contents.

Just report that site to google here You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Hello Ojekunle,
There's nothing bad if someone copies your content. It is called content syndication. On the other side,if a link is not placed at the end of the article linking to the website of the rightful  owner, then, it is PLAGIARISM.

That naijafinder is very notorious for stealing content and anywhere there is a link on your post, he puts "naijafinder discussion forum" or something like that. I am tired of the guy in fact and I hope his site shuts down

Olajide, don't use the word their is nothing bad. But everything is bad for someone to copy all your content without you goddamn permision. The worst aspect is for that site to now rank higher than your own in search engine. Infact, for all those who hosted their site on blogger, apply this css code on your template to diselect Text from being copied on your post.

Go to Template - Customise - Advance - Add Css. Then add this code below

.post {-webkit-user-select: none; -khtml-user-select: none; -moz-user-select: -moz-none; -ms-user-select: none; user-select: none;}

Save and exit, then watch the wonders of what it will do to your blog text from being copied by some unscropulous element destabilizing the peace of bloggers

Since the content of your site has  been removed, am of the opinion of opening the post I promised on a new post. Sorry, I didn't reply often as I should have because I now use my wife blackberry to make posts.


I do very well on widescreen laptop as "BB" is too small a screen for me to be posting all time. So,watch out for how to outrank any webpage that's rankin higher than yours".

Happy for you Ojekunle!

Hope you have implemented what Yomiprof suggested, if you are hosting on blogger.

Yomiprof, what of those using wordpress, any way available for us to protect our contents too?

Most people now copy blog posts and place on forums. I do not know if its the forum owners or just some odd members. I have seen some of my content on countless blogs and its tiring!

@OJ,

I just downloaded the plugin now, but have not installed it yet.

1.  On the installation page, it says it has not been tested yet for compactibility with the newest version of wordpress we now use.

2. Do you think it will have any effect on my adsense?


What do you think?

I'm yet to update my site to the newest wp version which is 3.5.2 I'm still using 3.5.1 and it worked fine without any compatibility issue. As to whether this plugin can affect your adsense I don't think so, but let's here from other experience members because i'm yet to have adsence account.

It does'nt have anything to do with your adsense account. You adsense is secured without any interference from this plugin

Hi Yomi & Oj

I implemented this plugin, however, only right-click is disabled. I am still able to select content of my site, and use ctrl+c to copy.

@Yomi, i noticed on your yomiprof.com site, i can't even select text to copy, so ctrl+c will not even work to copy anything from your site.

Any help pls?

This plugin is working fine on my site. You can visit it to be sure You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.
I also encountered this problem at the initial stage but later discovered my theme require some codes before the plugin will work.
To solve this problem follow the steps below:
1.click WP-copyProtect
2.Check disable text box, You will see a message beside the box which says not working? Click on it to know what to do to disable text selection.

Yep, installed and working.

However, after upgrading my WP to the new version 3.6, it has stopped working!  :(

I guess this is probably because the plugin author is yet to upgrade the plugin to become compatible with the new wordpress version
