Plagiarism Detection

Plagiarism Detection

Why is anti-plagiarism important?

Keyword volume, keyword competition, backlinks, etc, all form part of the SEO optimisation puzzle. Creating 100% original content also has an impact on how your audience will find your content.

This is important because Google wants to see original content and does not reward plagiarized writing. You have to have your own ideas, even if you are writing about a topic that has been written about before.

Plagiarised content adds no value, and the penalties from Google and other search engines are severe. Your SERP ranking will almost certainly be affected, and in extreme cases your website removed entirely.

It works by scanning the internet for duplicate content that pops up, to ensure that your content is original content. It will also provide you with a report if there are any hits that come back. There will be instances when you do get some hits - quotes are a good example.

For reference, a score of 5% or below is considered reasonable.

How do I check if my content is original?

To check if your content is original, click on the “Scan the text” button on the right hand side of your screen.

It will perform the scan to detect any duplicated content. You can click on the report if there is anything less than a 100%, to check the sources.

How does Mark Copy AI avoid plagiarism when creating content?

Mark Copy AI has been trained on GPT-3 by OpenAI. This is the most powerful AI machine learning tool built to date, that generates text based on what it has learned from reading approximately 10% of the internet, and features about 175 billion trainable parameters (the values that a neural network tries to optimise during training).

This inevitably brings up the question: if GPT-3 language models are trained by reading the internet, how can it produce original thoughts? The simple answer is that it can’t. Rather it replicates the content found in natural language, all over the internet.

But it’s important to note that it doesn’t take from one source, but rather an aggregate of all of the sources available to it to build a broad picture of that topic. Then, taking prompts from the user, it can take input text as an input and transform it into what it predicts the most useful result will be – building content word by word.

This process ensures content is not duplicated – but recreated. Leaving the author as the subject matter expert to adjust copy to their tone and match their point of view.
