But there is that refund. And it is one of the worst things which can count against you in your JSS calculation. Plus he perhaps left you a bad private feedback, which they can do despite not giving a public (stellar) one. Private feedback weighs more than public feedback when we speak about JSS.

I have found the most important factor for my JSS has been long term clients. When that percentage goes up, it has a strong impact on JSS. A less than perfect star rating doesn't have much effect at all.

To make myself clear, I will have to clarify a few points.

First of all, the client had no problems with my writing skills, but plagiarism. Namely, before distributing a piece to a client, I always check it on Copyscape for any potential results. 

I did it so, but the client was not content because when he copied the text on Google, he found a few matching sentences, which he found particularly unacceptable.

 lol why run it through copyscape if you aren't plagiarising? LOL Copying a sentence and putting it in Google will help the client find "reworded" content. Copyscape is a dummied down scraped version of Google results. Better to put phrases in Google to find plagiarism. 


So many "writers" think this is OK. I don't get it. Taking sentences and changing words is still plagiarising. It's junk content that does nothing for a site owner. Some people use spun content for backlinks, but putting useless content on your site is worthless. 


Also, focusing on word count is doinitrong.

Okay, I got it.

You are absolutely right. But what if my previous clients demanded Copyscape scanning and were perfectly fine with that?

This client could at least say it is not acceptable to him, and I would definitely make sure to meet his needs.

Nobody of value asks you to run something through copyscape.
