Aside from using plagiarism software, manual scrutiny of a written piece by an editor is also a good practice.
Just because Wikipedia and WikiHow rank highest in search results, plagiarizing content from these sites won't rank your website either. Their written material is super lengthy and supposedly invalid. And since information about every possible niche is up to those sites, there's a high chance that that information is not concentrated enough for good use.
Instead, legitimate websites that focus on a certain niche is more likely to have the information you are looking for.
Also known as verbatim. The act of mentioning the writer's name and using quotation marks in order to credit the information source is called a quotation. Quoting another writer's work with due honesty is the right thing to do in the writing ethic. Not only it gives the original writer its deserving credits, but it also makes the aspiring writer look legitimate, just as well.
The act of content citing falls in a relatively similar category of quotations. In the citation, a clear and concise link to the original content (often scholarly work) is mentioned for reference. This was done in handwritten research papers and book in the earlier time. Digitally, website referencing and citation has become a common practice.
Citations/ in-text citations appear in the body of text, whether the text is directly quoted or paraphrased; a text is cited to identify a particular author or publication for the user content.
Referencing is another stem of quotations and citations. Reference generally appears at the end of a text in the form of a list that is alphabetically arranged, showing the array of resources used in the completion of a certain writing piece. References may contain a list of book/e-books or journals, websites, blog posts, forums, speech, thesis reports, research reports, an interview, a documentary etc.
If the content idea is unique and new, there isn't much content on the internet to copy or plagiarize from. The puts the initially publishing website of that content in a higher place.
