1. You Get banned by Google if You are reported:
One of the things that should make you run away from the CTRL C + CTRL V is the Google stuff we are talking about. If you are reported to Google for copying an article, then Google has the right to disable your ads. So to avoid heart breaks and depressions, please stay away from copying and pasting.
2. Your Blog ranking begins to fall:
You can’t compare a blog with unique articles with that of photocopied articles. Original contents will always rank more than copied ones from my experience provided other SEO factors remains constant. So be ready to face a drop in your ranking after the Mindless lifting or articles.
3. You loose Uniqueness:
Have you notices that blogs that provide original contents are always unique? Blogs like the flashlearners, and so many others provide quality contents and that is why they are still standing strong. Users or visitors to your blog will be frustrated seeing that you have compromised your standards by copying and pasting articles without mercy.
4. Your blog looses value and visitors begin to run away:
The Next phase of experience in the act of copying and pasting of peoples article is the sudden escape of your visitors to your blog. The kind of traffic you use to get will drop drastically. Bookmarked pages will suddenly be removed without a second thought. So when next you want to copy and paste, remember this.
5. You become a Terrorist to other Bloggers:
Other blogger will begin to fear you whenever they release articles, having in mind that there is a terrorist somewhere who is watching ..lol. I am afraid someone may copy mine and use it on his or her blog. I have noticed one thing, that 60% of the persons who copy your articles will likely be from among your friends. To avoid threatening other bloggers, please mind how your copy peoples articles.
My advise to those bloggers that will not allow someone rest
Even if you are to copy without the owners consent, do either of the following:
- Use a CREDIT to source the article to let anyone know where you got it from.
- Edit the original article, then add your own ideas before publishing it.
Otherwise, when the calamity comes, be ready to face it. Do not come here and complain that i did not inform you….
