I’ve written and published a couple of articles for Factoidz on the last week of March 2011. To my surprise, one of the articles which I published on Factoidz on the 27th of March 2011 was published verbatim on Triond on the 28th of March 2011. My Factoidz article has been plagiarized by a Triond writer.
I’m so outraged that one of my articles “How to Get Top Google Ranking for Your Online Articles” has been plagiarized by a Triond writer. It was published on Triond and the article appears on the first page of Google search results page for the keyword phrase “how to get top google ranking” (with quotation marks). My original article has been removed from the results page.
However, Triond has removed the article from their website but you can still see the article if you click on “Cache” on the search result.
How can this happen? I thought Triond is very careful about publishing plagiarized material. How did this writer plagiarize my article and got it published on Triond? Now, I’ve been robbed of the organic traffic that I should get to my article. It seems that Google is not displaying my article on the results page but instead has displayed this plagiarized article.
I went to this writer’s profile page on Triond and guess what he/she wrote on his/her profile? “DO NOT COPY. All articles on this page are registered and protected with myfreecopyright.com”. He/She should follow his/her own advice.
Should I complain to Triond and seek compensation or get this writer banned from Triond? If this writer has plagiarized my article, I can’t be sure how many other articles he/she had plagiarized in the past. I don’t think that this is the first time he/she had done this.
Who is for banning such writers?
