    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect
    against content from being ripped off? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.

      You are right about your hard built content getting copied by people all over the internet. But there is nothing that you can do. The only thing you can do is notifying about this on your social media account. For example – if you see one of your image being used in Pinterest you can report this pin as a copyright content of yours providing the required details for it.
      This is the only solution which I use for protecting my content. I hope this helps.

    Hi, I really want my pimples to go away and I have a gazillion scars on my face and even my dad who doesn’t pay attention to my pimples at all said that my face is covered with them. I once tried honey. Not sure if it was pure. I had horrible rashes on my face afterwards. I have my grad in a few days. What can I do?
