Why WP Copy Protect?
Many webmasters are suffering from content thief. Some copycats copies the original content from one website and paste in their own website which may leads to duplicate content.
Lets see following scenario.
Suppose website A has original content which has crawled frequency is 7 days. That means Google crawler crawls website A in intervals of 7 days. Suppose website B has crawled frequency is 1 day. If Website B copies original content from website A. Then what will happen? Google crawler will crawl Website B first because of less crawling frequency and Website A‘s original content may flag as duplicate content and may penalized by Google Panda.
Although there are some methods such as DMCA to tell Google about the origin of content. But Prevention is better than cure. Hence the best way is to prevent your content from being copied.
WP copy Protect WordPress plugin helps the WordPress webmasters to prevent their content from being copied.
WP copy Protect will disable the copy functionality of any browser when a user visits on your website. If user unable to copy the content, then how he can steal your content?
Also WP Copy Protect does not affect SEO. Search engines can read your content.
