How to stop content theft

How To Stop Content Theft (& What To Do If It Happens)

When you publish your own content on your website, it’s automatically protected by copyright law. This means it’s never okay to use images or text from other websites without written permission, even if it’s been published on social media or displays in Google Images. You may embed content where the creator has allowed it, for example embedding someone else’s YouTube video or Instagram image on your website using the embed code provided by the social network (which includes credit and links).

Unfortunately, there are always people out there who will take advantage of your words, images, and other content to use on their own website or to drive traffic to it. In this post, we look at some ways you can make it harder for thieves to steal your content, and what you can do about it if it does happen.

What To Learn Next In Blogging

What To Learn First (Or Next) As A Blogger

Imagine if you tried to learn how to crawl, walk, run, ski, drive, cycle, and surf all at the same time. Or if when you started learning to read as a small child, the first book you were given was a Shakespeare play and you were told to write a dissertation and give a talk on your work at a conference by the end of the month.

It would be impossible right? You’d end up frustrated, confused, and overwhelmed.

But this is what a lot of bloggers try to do. It’s normal to be excited about blogging, but trying to learn everything straight away is just going to pull you in a bunch of different directions. Without delving deep enough into anything specific, or sticking at one thing long enough to make a difference, you’ll be spinning plates without getting anywhere. Not only does it set you up for getting frustrated with yourself and your results, it’s the fastest path to burnout.
