Writing Uniquely

Don’t copy, don’t paste! Please be careful about it. First of all, you have committed plagiarism and disregarded the rights of the other party. Secondly, search engines can understand this. When you copy sentences or content that are shared before, your website rank may decrease. On the other hand, people lose their trust in you.

Writing unique articles, and contents are important. And before I forget, there is something I must say. Using AI tools like Chat GPT on your blog isn’t correct. Because when you do this, your content will have a new author. Artificial intelligence! You should at least respect her rights and credit. 🙂

Sorted Correctly Header Tags

When use strictly, the website has higher ranks. I would like to write a blog about this in English. If I write, I will add the link here.
