Why You Should Disable Right Click on Blogger with CSS
Here are some reasons why you should disable right-clicking on your blog by using a no right click CSS.
- A non-functional right click for copy ensures that posts on your blog that are written by you are not duplicated on other web pages on the net, hence your blog stays as unique as possible.
- Unique content on your blog that has not been shared anywhere gives you higher rankings on search engine result pages because search engines will always try to bring up the best possible result for a user's query.
But what happens when 5 other blogs on the net are competing with your blog with the same search term and content which was copied from your blog?
One of these two things will most likely happen.
Here's the First:
You may rank higher than them if you have enough backlinks to the post, and your page authority is higher than theirs.
And the second,
You may rank lower, even struggling to stay on page one because their page authority is higher than yours due to the number of backlinks to that page and comments made by their visitors.
So now you see, your time and effort spent writing a post is an almost waste, yes almost, because you'll still get some of the traffic, while a large portion of it will be distributed among those who plagiarized your work.
You might be the original creator of the content on your blog, but someone who copied from you with the right backlinks and keywords in place,
May have their posts rank higher than yours in search engine results pages, meaning low benefits for you in terms of traffic, blog popularity, and generally low earnings,
Don't want all the time you've spent in researching and putting up your quality and unique content to go to waste?
