When I hub hop I like to take hubs that look fishy and check to see if they are copied content. This week I have found 8 hubs that were in whole or part copied directly from another page. Anyone have me beat?
No. I flag for other reasons too. It is time to invest; however, it is to everyone benefit that hubpages have a good reputation. That is why hubpages has rules, people who are here to "game" the system hurt all of us. So, I take the time to try flag hubs.
Yes they do have their own system, but I have seen hubs slip past it, so it doesnt hurt to help.
Be careful to look at the dates. I run another blog and I have caught people copying my content and posting it on other sites under their own names. Most of the sites are Korean or Chinese forums translated into other languages. Check the dates and see who posted first before you go flagging, just in case it's the other way around. Just a suggestion.
Yeah, like I said, I don't flag copied hubs from actually hubbers. I message them privately. That way they can file a claim. The ones I flag are usually brand new accounts with 1 or 2 hubs. The old user, was pretty obviously a promotional hub, breaking rules and somehow getting away with it. There were other rule breaking going there.
I would hope that, if someone noticed my hubs content was on another site, they would have the courtesy to let me know, too. It isn't hard to tell who is active and really here to add to the community, and who is here to game it.
Well thank goodness you're taking time to do this. If a 3-year hubber with tons of pages has a bunch of duplicate content, it doesn't sound like HP's system is working properly. In three years you would think the dupes would have been found by now.
Hi all,I've been using Google Alerts to find and report duplicated hubs without having to spend hours doing a monthly search for them. Here's what you do. Go to Google Alerts, add an alert and copy and paste the...
I flagged two new hubs that I saw in my feed this morning for copied content, and each of them had been published in at least four other locations?Surely, there is a better automatic filter that HP could use to help...
This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a...
