Last Updated: November 10, 2016

When it comes to blogging, plagiarism should always be avoided because, if you will publish any form of plagiarized content on your blog then Google will push down your blog in search results and you may lose a lot of traffic and credibility as well. The issue of plagiarized content is prominent in those blogs where guest posts are accepted. In order to avoid any such issue, you must check the submitted content for plagiarism. To help you with that, here I bring some of the best tools to check copied or plagiarized content.

Here are top 6 tools for checking plagiarism online for free.

DupliChecker is a completely free tool for detecting plagiarism.

To check for plagiarism, you can either upload the Docx or Text file or you can submit the content in text box and hit search button, with in a couple of seconds results will be made available to you.

4. Plagiarism Detector

Plagiarism Detector lets you submit the content in the text box or upload in the form of a Doc file. The checking for plagiarized content is completely free and Sign up is optional.

The working of this tool is different from all other tools, It converts your content in to a number of sentences such that each sentence’s word count is with in the searchable limits of Google and when you click on the option ‘Check Results’ opposite to any sentence, It will return the Google search result for the same sentence. Hence, you’ll know whether that sentence is spinner or copied from some already existing resource or not.

Apart from the tools mentioned above, there are quite a few freemium tools too. They have a daily limit of free searches and to uplift the limit, you will have to opt for the paid options.

Here are some of these tools,

5. Plagium

Plagium allows one search a day for free. You can directly submit the content in the text box or upload the text file or enter a URL. Sign up is optional but If you sign up, It will keep a record of your previous plagiarism checks.

Plagium’s paid plan starts from 1 USD.

6. Plagiarisma

Plagiarisma allows three searches a day and supports more than 190 languages. But, the results returned by Plagiarisma are not satisfactory because It doesn’t look up for plagiarized content in Google.

To use Google as the default search engine for detecting plagiarized content and to lift up the daily limit, you will have to go with the paid option starting from 5 USD a month.

  1. My favorite free plagiarism checker online remains SmallSeoTools. The tool is quite simple and easy to use and have never failed me as it carefully check every sentence for existence on the web and will even suggest the date of publication with link if such contents exists elsewhere.

  2. Really helpful for bloggers. Palagrsim check is necessary for every content because copy content kills the SEO rating and result in poor readers experience on any blog.
