I am looking for a way to regularly check if any of my written content has been reproduced somewhere without my consent. I read this:
Pingbacks: Depending on your content management system, you may have the ability to be notified whenever a site links back to a post. If someone straight up copies your content and pastes it on his or her site, this is a really easy way to be notified — no analytics necessary. (https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/internet-content-theft)
Do I have to understand that if another website copy/paste my content I can be alerted through pingbacks? Sounds to good to be true.
Yes, Pingbacks ( and Trackbacks ) can be a valuable asset to your sites SEO, as it can increase the traffic to your site, and if the referrer site is an authority site then even better, that really pumps up those links. But i confess i am no SEO expert 🙂
