"Instant Plagiarism Checker"

Comments: In general experience, I discovered Copyscape the most effective software solution among all different plagiarism checking software programs. The tool helps me a lot to verify my own as well as others' content material efficiently and easily. On the other hand, It allows me to check the copy resources as well which gives me the perfect belonging of content.

Pros: Easy & Simple – The technique of working is very simple. The simple interface of Copyscape allows you to knows how it works from the very first time.
Cost-Effective – The price of the tool is extremely minimal and in addition offers some discounts as well. Which is admittedly helpful for somebody who has to confirm plenty of work. Premium credits of Copyscape is also out there in advance by utilizing some particular services.
Direct Message Conveys – The tool instantly conveys the services it's offering and the FAQ section is actually useful.

Cons: No Verification – There is not an option to confirm whether all of the sources described have been completely checked or not.
No Explanation of sources checked – The tool doesn't inform which sources from which they've checked.
No free sign-ups – Usually tools enable free to join a month or so. But Copyscape doesn't do so. So, the consumer has no idea what he's investing in or how genuine the companies supplied are.

"Excellent search result"

Comments: Irrespective of what copyscape charge for each search, the software is excellent in searching throughout the web for plagiarism. I have been able to avoid plagiarism and also getting my content rejected by clients.

Pros: I'm a freelance writer and I also self publish, so I make use of copyscape all the time. The App is so easy to use, all I need to do is just copy my content, paste on the site and click on premium search. The search result shows you plagiarized sentences and also gives you a link of the website to compare.
Copyscape enables you to rewrite parts of your article in order to have a original content.

Cons: The free trial doesn't give you a complete result. You need to get the premium package in order to get a complete and comprehensive search result. You also get charged based on the number of words in your file. The higher the words, the higher the price.

"Copyscape Software Review"

Comments: I've been solving my writing business using Copyscape, and it has made it very easy for me to be writing unique content for companies. This software is highly recommended.

Pros: This software has helped me a lot to detect plagiarized content as a writer. Copyscape is extremely easy to use, as I only need to paste my document to the software and check for any plagiarized content.

Cons: Well, what I do not like about this software is, at times, there are some words that are plagiarized, but they will still be found unique on the software. Also, I don't get to see the sources of the plagiarized content. I hope they work on that.

"The Best Plagiarism Checker"

Comments: I have run more than 100k articles through CopyScape over the last 10 years. I have tried to find a replacement, but I always run back to CopyScape. My volume these days is way lower though. But back in the heyday of Google Adsense sites, I ran a LOT of content through.

Pros: It is super easy to use. You just copy / paste an article in to the textbox, hit the button "Premium Search" and it will instantly tell you if your content is original or not. I have had hundreds of freelance workers producing content for me over the years. More than half of them have tried to submit content with huge sections they blatantly stole from other websites. So having this tool, has saved me a lot of hassle and money.

Cons: It is a bit expensive. Yes, I save money by not paying for plagiarized content, but it runs up when you bulk check content. For a single website or a content writer, this would not be a huge problem, but I seem to have to pull out my credit card way too often :) I was interested in trying out their CopySentry function as well, but it would be WAY too expensive.
