Do you copy and paste content from other blogs and websites to make posts on your one? If yes, then you must stop this now as it may ruin your blog or may even snatch it from you. Most beginner bloggers commit this mistake and fill their blogs by copying and pasting content from other blogs and websites. In this post, I will explain 4 disastrous results which may hit your blog if you copy and paste content from other blogs to maintain it.
1. Google Will Ignore You
You are well aware about the fact that Google decides the fate of blogs and websites. If you succeed in driving traffic from the search engines Giant, then success is yours. But if your blog is full of copied and pasted content, Google may ignore it. Remember that Google aims to deliver fresh and quality content to the searchers and if your blog contains the content, which is already there on other sources and Google’s indices, then Google may ignore to even index it.
So to gain higher rankings in SERPs and to drive more traffic from Google, you must write your own content. Copying and pasting will never bring you even a minor success, alternatively it will drop rankings of your blog greatly.
2. You May Lose Your Blog
This disadvantage is specific to Blogger users. When you spend less time on post editor and complete your posts quickly by copying and pasting content from other sources, Google may delete your blog and copying/pasting of content is among the biggest reasons which result in Blogger blog deletion.
When a Blogger user spends less time on his/her blog and content is added frequently, then Google declares the blog as a spam or suspicious one and deletes it instantly. So to keep your Blogger blog safe and sound, you must write content by your own using Blogger post editor.
3. Copied Content isn’t Loved
Your visitors don’t need the content to read which is already there on the Internet. When you copy content from any other source, it is most likely to be read by your readers already.
To bring more visitors and to retain them on your blog, always write fresh and interesting content. Analyze your visitors and write what they love to read. Remember that your blog audience visits your blog to read your own opinions, not what others say.
4. DMCA Take Down – Yes its Possible
When you copy and paste content from other sources, in reality you are stealing the content of others and the owners may take DMCA take downs against your blog for the copyright infringement. This may result in several difficulties and your hosting company will be forced to remove the content which you have stolen from others. In such a way, you may need to start from beginning.
So these were four big disadvantages of copying and pasting content from other blogs and websites. If you are doing this, you must stop it right now to ensure that your blog and its ranking are safe and sound always 🙂
