- It happened that a post on a facebook CBC group that A blog has plagiarized our member blog post.
- Apart from that, I learned from and CBCian “Sylvian” that Google can also own your content and if needed they could use them for their own purpose if needed, that is what policy says.
- For what you write, blogger or wordpress or any subdomain owners contribution improves ranking for the domain i.e wordpress.com or blogger.com etc
Here is what I learned, once I moved to my domain. What ever I write or the media belongs to me, all rights reserved.
Who should move to their own domain?
If you are casual blogger, occasional post and probably feel you would not make a dent in the universe, then it is a big no.
People who are trying to creating their own branding in any genre, name it fashion, photography, tech blogger etc, should plan to move.
How can you avoid plagiarism?
If you use wordpress CMS, there is a plugin available “Yoast WordPress SEO” under RSS feeds you could customize your URL, so what happens, if bots copy your content, still it points to your own domain and not his. I am sure, your design company could also write a custom plugin to solve this problem.

So who is the content owner now?
It is you
What about your ranking for your work?
If you can write for a subdomain owner, why not for you and create own branding image.
