At Content Hero all of the content that we write for our clients is 100% unique. We always provide sources to statistics and quotes, sources for images, and we never use any form of software to generate content.
Quality is the most important aspect of our content creation process. Our clients have come to expect a certain standard from us and if we do not achieve this, we become disappointed in ourselves.
We have a number of tools in our utility belts that allow us to deliver none stop quality and stick to a plagiarism promise. We have covered the best content plagiarism detectors before, however, over the last few months we have found ourselves using a tool called Duplichecker more and more.
Duplichecker, you say?
Yep, and you can check it out at http://duplichecker.com/.
Duplichecker is an online content plagiarism detector. Less well known about than Copyscape, Duplichecker offers the ability for users to check content for plagiarism through copy and paste or by uploading a .doc or .txt file.
You can upload 1500 words of content per search, making it ideal for checking any articles that you have had written for your business.
What’s it like?
Duplichecker is one of many content plagiarism detectors available online.
100% free to use, Duplichecker sets itself apart from the competition by offering the ability to instantly upload text in a variety of formats.
Duplichecker is so simple to use that anybody can use it. Content marketers, content writing agencies, business owners, students; no matter who you are Duplichecker is accessible for all.
Ahh, but I bet it costs money down the line?
Nope, not a penny. Sure you need to sign up for a free account to upload more than 1500 words of text at a time, but the company doesn’t want any money from you.
Does it work?
Yes, it does. In order to test the plagiarism detection rate in Duplichecker we carried out two tests a total of 15 times each.
The first test involved copying a 100 word paragraph of text from a Google, Yahoo and Bing indexed article and pasting it within a unique 1,400 word article. We then uploaded the text to Duplichecker and pressed submit.
The second test involved copying just 40 words of text and pasting it in to a 1,460 word article.
Duplichecker passed with a result of 100%, pointing us directly to the very web page which we copied the text from, and it also highlighted lesser sources who either quoted or copied text themselves. This was an astounding result and proof that the tool can be trusted by marketers.
We did find that Duplichecker’s detection rate fell to 40% when just 20 words were uploaded, however we never expected the tool to be able to detect that low a level of plagiarism.
But what about Copyscape?
Copyscape is the number one content plagiarism detector online. However, in order to be granted the ability to upload text, you need to sign up to Copyscape Premium, a paid service (it costs 5 cents per search in USD). At Content Hero we are signed up to this very service, but we use Duplichecker more for copy and pasting, because it is free and it offers the exact same results.
One thing Duplichecker does not offer is the ability to scan a URL and search the web for blatant copies. Therefore you’ll only be copy and pasting with this service, although by doing so, you feel like you’re doing a better job by carrying out some of the labour (high five!).
As a free tool Duplichecker is a valuable resource. Our own tests have found that it offers as good a detection rate as Copyscape Premium, and that alone should have you bookmarking this tool in to your web browser.
That said, Duplichecker is not the be all and end all of plagiarism detection. As a content marketer, utilizing all available resources close to you is recommended, and other top services include Copyscape, Plagspotter, Doc Cop and Reprint Writers Tool. With each of these tools at your disposal you’ll never make the mistake of publishing a low quality article online.
