Hub been copied at least twice!

    My Head lice hub at first seems to have been copied at least twice if I copy and search my first paragraph, yet when visiting the websites that use my first paragraph as their intro blurb in searches, they are nothing to do with this subject, nor can I find my content.
    This is what I see when I do a copy and search; My article is the first search result but no.3 and no.8 are copied.

    What can I do about this? TIA

      Ddraigcoch,

      Here are two sites that you can check for stolen work. They should still work for you, even in the UK, since they check the internet as a whole.
      I hope that they help?

      How many people do you think have written blogs about head lice? Unless you've discovered a breakthrough I'm sure it's been done somewhere (probably everywhere) so there's nothing you could say that someone hasn't already said. A lot of subjects are like that, maybe you could find a new topic, more unique. When you put things out there (www) you gotta' expect anything. I encourage people to take my stuff, I don't take $ for anything I write or my photos so I don't get stressed. Good luck though.  Peace!!  Tom

        I expect thousands of articles on Head lice but I don't expect word for work to see my writing. I use my personal voice when writing.
        I just rewrote the first paragraph, it was easier.

    Cheers Paul, it was just the confusion of whether I could use that process being as it is in the blurb only.
    I guess it is theft where ever it is, thank you.

      I would suggest doing a search with quotes around it when looking for copies.  Google will only show you exact matches that way.  You probably don't need the whole paragraph, just try a few 5-6 word segments that you think are reasonably unique.

      If you can't find your content on the page, you can look at the cached version that google has by clicking the right arrow next to the search result.   A site may change the content that they are displaying for a URL at any time, and it takes time for Google to re-crawl and update their index.
