Regularly monitor search results by conducting keyword searches related to your content. If you suspect plagiarism, carefully examine the websites that appear in the search results. Look for verbatim matches or substantial similarities to your original work. It's crucial to gather evidence of the infringement to support your claim.

Collecting Evidence

When reporting stolen content, it is essential to have compelling evidence that clearly demonstrates the originality of your work and its unauthorized use. Take screenshots or save web page URLs of both your original content and the offending website. Highlight specific portions that have been copied or paraphrased without permission.
