Protect Your Blog Content and Get Free Traffic

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Content is the most valuable asset for any blog or content firm. So you must protect your content from the content thieves who steal your content and publish it on their blog. Though Google has now changed their algorithm which is known as Google Panda catches the copied content and punishes the blog but still there are chances that the post copied from your blog to another blog may get more visit than your blog article. So here you are losing both the credit for the article and the valuable traffic. 

But here is a simple but very useful trick that can help you not only in protecting your work but also helps driving free traffic from the blog where your content is published illegally. This trick will add a link back to your original article if some one copies the article.

 

So how does it work?  

 

So the trick behind it is that whenever someone copies the content a link to your original article will be automatically appended without the knowledge of the content thief. Most of these content thieves are very lazy and they just copy and paste the content to their blog and hence the stolen content will have a link back to your website.

 

How to implement the trick?

 

This trick can be implemented just using a simple java script function. Just add the below JavaScript function to the header section of your website. If your are using WordPress then add the script inside head tag of header.php file of your theme. That’s all the script will take care of the rest. 

<script type="text/javascript">
function protectContent() {
var body_element = document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0];
var selection;
selection = window.getSelection();
var pagelink = "<br /><br /> Read more at: 
<a href='"+document.location.href+"'>"
+document.location.href+"</a>
<br />Copyright &copy; Jafaloo.com"; // change this if you want
var copytext = selection + pagelink;
var newdiv = document.createElement('div');
newdiv.style.position='absolute';
newdiv.style.left='-99999px';
body_element.appendChild(newdiv);
newdiv.innerHTML = copytext;
selection.selectAllChildren(newdiv);
window.setTimeout(function() {
body_element.removeChild(newdiv);
},0);
}
document.oncopy = protectContent;
</script>

You can also download the script from here.

That’s all, just change the copyright name and if you want add some more to it. You can also check out the article on how to check for copied content of your blog for dealing with plagiarism.
