    It may be a strange title but let me show you my opinion by images:

    Today I want to write an article about Successful Online Marketing
    so I searched in Ezinearticles.com and found this article
    Successful Online Marketing

    I was very useful article , so I decided to rewrite it again to be unique article.
    But first I should search on copyscape if there was copies from the article, first by url search
    [​IMG]

    I found 30 Copy for the article
    I asked my self what happened if I copy article into text search
    I was shocked when see these results
    [​IMG]

    The original article was not found in results, and only 6 results

    I said , may be some problems in copyscape
    try another article from weight loss niche
    so , I chooses this article
    It was amazing when seeing the results, by url search
    [​IMG]
    SEMrush
    trying with text search
    found only one result , and it was by accident when 52 keywords matched with another article!!!
    [​IMG]

    Update:
    when testing the same article at plagium.com
    it was very interested results!!!!

    Plagium did not found documents making use of the text that you entered.

    see pic

    I think after these tests , I can say that any computerized plagiarism , is such time wasting!
    Update:
    how copyscape and other plagiarism work ?
    and why it gives fraud results ?
    what's your experience with copyscape and other plagiarisms?
    Could plagiarism protect your copyrights?

    Copyscape uses google results.
    Simply it divides your text to sentences and performs a search loop for each sentence.
    So, their system is not complicated and depends on the results of google.

    Your ezine articles have over 1k words when you search the links but when you paste the articles, you are only pasting about 400 words. Ezine sometimes has previews of other articles on the pages as well as adds and citations and it looks like that is creating additional words and the additional results. Not a scam, simply more information to search for when you search the link.

    1. Do not start threads here to accuse people of being scammers. Those kinds of complaints belong in iTrader feedback or reviews left in deal threads for business you did on DP only. No he said / she said stuff.

    2. You admit in your first post that you intended to be guilty of copyright infringement (rewriting someone else's article and claiming it as your own without the copyright holder's permission - it's a derivative work and therefore a copyright violation). So I really don't know where you think you get off complaining about anyone else in the process. :rolleyes:
