    Copyscape is a free plagiarism checker.

    You can also check parts of the article in quotes in google to see if there are any duplicates.

    I no longer trust Copyscape - when I paid for the premium version it had a 15% fail rate at spotting copied content. My test batch was small, admittedly, but the fact that their system does not use live searches put me off: they search against their own maintained indices from the big engines, which they happily admit are not current (or at least they did at the time).

    For my needs, I have four plagiarism checks:

    1. duplichecker.com (one free guest check, bigger limited number per day when you sign up for free - it seems to be around 20 checks a day). The best one I've found, as it not only compares and tells you where the copied bits are from, but will open those pages and highlight the copy, so you can see if it's just chance or stolen.
    2. smallseotools.com/plagiarism-checker (free, several checks per day). Less reliable, but a good extra check.
    3. paperrater.com/plagiarism_checker (free, haven't found a limit yet). Extremely fast, not very helpful in showing where the copied bits are or where they're from - just a URL and no other help.
    4. The one I wrote myself for WordPress.

    Between those, it's VERY rare that I miss a copy, and there's no cost.

    Dealing directly with the writer is always the best option as you can directly message them and get a response back rather than having to wait so long as you would when you are just dealing with the middle man or the person who is selling another person's work.

    Copyscape is your best friend. If you are buying content from someone else, then consider checking it yourself. Read it and if it makes sense, it should be fine. People are using spinner articles these days and can give you a spun article that will pass copyscape but they’re actually not completely original.

    Hi,
    You can check on Grammarly
    It will show you, your article is unique or not. But just On Plagiarism whenever you paste the article on Grammarly

    Thumbs up for Copyscape, though I must say that it's a paid service.

    You could try resorting to Paperrater - it's a bit inaccurate, but it's better than nothing. It's also a good grammar and spelling checker too.

    Copyscape helps. So does building a long-term relationship with a writer you trust.

    I usually just google few sentences and find the duplicates. Some of the content 'writers' I tried to work in the past were to lazy to do even a proper re-writing :D

    This was a very interesting post!! I did not think that there was such sites that check for plagiarism! All of you shared such valuable information for a newbie like me who will be writing articles soon.
