It is true that a blog with great and unique contents can be panlized for copyright infringement. Before we proceed, let’s discuss what happens when a blog is penalized.

  • Site will be blacklisted.
  • Site may not show on search results pages.
  • Adsense account will be disabled.

When the above happens to a blog, we can frankly say that the blog is finished. if a blog is blacklisted, that means no more traffic.

If a site is no longer showing on search results, that also mean no more traffic.

let’s discuss ways of saving your site from copyright infringement.
