Set Up Your Google Alerts to Protect Your Constant Content Submissions

Recently the website content freelancing company, Constant Content faced a serious content theft of their authors' content. This is a freelancing site (one of the best), where you can write and submit articles to sell them to website owners at great prices. You can read my review here: Constant Content Review.

This notification is for all those new authors at CC. CC doesn't let your full content on display normally. You can set how much of your content should a potential buyer see, in the "Content Details" field when you submit an article. I recommend that you never put the entire article in this field. Put only one third of the article, and it will be even better if you break it down unintelligibly. You can see it in my author page here.

Normally, a display article can't be copied and displayed on any website. But if that happens, you can now protect yourself from it. For this, CC provides a Google Alerts phrase. Go to your "My Account" page, and look for the Google Alerts phrase. It will be something like, "This article is property of Constant Content Writer xxxxx and is being printed here without the author's permission.". You need to set a Google Alert for this phrase, and if ever your content is stolen, you will get an alert as to where the stolen content appears. Here is the procedure:

  • Go to Google Alerts
  • Sign in and you will see Create an Alert option.
  • In the search terms field, put the above phrase with the quotes.
  • Choose comprehensive as type, 'as it happens' as frequency, and set your email address for delivery, and click Create Alert.

That's it. Now, whenever anyone copies content, you will get an alert, if Google picks up the copied content. If you ever get such an alert, simply contact Constant Content and let them know of it. They will take further action to take it down.

What Is the Difference Between Hardcover and Paperback?

Today, my reader, Rahman contacted me with a doubt:

Dear Lenin, would you explain why there are two types of books: hardcover and paperback?
This is quite a simple affair and there are explanatory articles to be found at various places on the Net. Here is my addition.

Hardcover

A hardcover aka hardback is a book bound with thick protective cover, with usually a paper or leather dust jacket over the main cover. The aim of hardcover is protection and durability. These books are mainly for long-term use and collectors’ editions. Hardcover books last far longer than the corresponding paperbacks. They do not get damaged easily thus making them perfect for reference guides, great literary works, etc.

In addition, there is a difference in the type of paper used to print hardcover books. The paper used is long-lasting acid-free type. Acid-free paper has a pH value of 7 (neutral) which makes it highly durable. The papers are stitched and glued to the spine.

Hardbacks are prepared for commercial …

En Dash, Em Dash, and Hyphen

We have three types of dashes in use: The hyphen, En Dash, and the Em Dash. In this post, we will see how to use them all correctly.

Hyphen (-)

The hyphen is the minus key in Windows-based keyboards. This is a widely used punctuation mark. Hyphen should not be mistaken for a dash. Dash is different and has different function than a hyphen.

A hyphen is used to separate the words in a compound adjective, verb, or adverb. For instance:

The T-rex has a movement-based vision.
My blog is blogger-powered.
John’s idea was pooh-poohed.


The hyphen can be used generally for all kinds of wordbreaks.

En Dash (–)

En Dash gets its name from its length. It is one ‘N’ long (En is a typographical unit that is almost as wide as 'N'). En Dash is used to express a range of values or a distance:

People of age 55–80 are more prone to hypertension.
Delhi–Sidney flight was late by three hours.


In MS Word, you can put an En Dash either from the menu, clicking Insert->Symbol or by the key-combination, Ctrl + Num…

What Is the Meaning of the Word 'Ghajini'? Story and Trivia of Aamir Khan's New Film [Special]

[Special Entry]



Aamir Khan's latest film is titled a little weirdly for the taste of Hindi filmgoers. 'Ghajini': They have never heard of such a name, and such a word never existed in Hindi or in any other Indian language.

The name Ghajini is the name of the villain of the film. In Tamil version, the name of the villain was Laxman.

As a Tamil moviegoer, I have already watched Ghajini and know the story in full.

So, What Does the Title Mean?

In Tamil, the title of the film is inspired by the story of Mahmud of Ghazni, an ancient invader of India. This person was so persistent in invading India that he continued trying after several failures. In the film too, the protagonist is such persistent in finding out and killing the villain of the film, who had killed his girlfriend, Kalpana (played by Asin). Aamir's Character (named Sanjay Ramaswamy in Tamil), is a short-term amnesiac, who cannot remember anything more than fifteen minutes.

You may ask then how the Ghazni became…
