Copyscape
« on: February 15, 2011, 10:04:51 PM »
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to ask questions.

I am new to article writing. I use The Best Spinner and usually end up changing almost everything I write. But I get my ideas from things that have already been written on the web. I purchased units of Copyscape and have been checking all of my articles. So far all but one have passed the first time around.

Here's my question. Will Copyscape keep me 100% safe on the web? I want to trust that it will but am very new to all this and need to hear from someone more knowledgeable than I am.

Whilst having a couple of JL's products for a couple of years now, IAW2, Answer Analyst and more recently, IAW3, I'm now just starting to use them as I need good content articles.

Copyscape is new to me and I didn't realise that there is a charge for using it through IAW3 - am I right in understanding this ?

Is there another similar FREE service etc ?

Do you have to buy units from Copyscape to run IAW3 ?

Copyscape is a 3rd party program. You buy your access through Copyscape but you can use it on IAW and TBS if you wish. There are a number of free plagiarism checkers available on the internet and a number of posts about these on IAW and also TBS. There was also a recent post about a new checker on the general chatter forum at http://prosperative.com/public-forum/general-chatter/cool-free-alternative-to-copyscape/

You do NOT have to have copyscape units to use either TBS or IAW. I don't use Copyscape (sorry Honeyjo - not yet) and I use both IAW and TBS
