So as you can see, it is super simple to do a reverse image search on google. Now let’s learn why you should do a reverse image search on all of your images that you publish…and check them regularly.
ONE || Find out if someone is using/stealing your content. AKA Plagiarism. A reverse image search will allow you to see if someone is using your graphic without your permission. It will also show you if someone has used your graphic and also removed your logo…meaning serious stuff! (The kind of serious stuff that would cause you to have to send a Cease and Desist letter to the person using your graphic without your permission.) You could always try reaching out to the person asking them to give you credit for the post/image/content. But if they blatantly scrape your entire content/post…then a cease and desist letter is the route to go.
TWO || Find out if someone is quoting you without telling you that they are quoting you. Sometimes people will quote you and use your profile graphic or blog button to give you credit, but won’t reach out to you to tell you that they did so. Searching allows you to see who is quoting your content by using your graphic.
