Copied Hub: The Aftermath

    One of my hubs was copied on Tumblr.  I found it in early December (though it had been posted there in May), notified Tumblr and they removed it very quickly.  However, I noticed today that if I copy a few sentences from that hub into Google search (my very technical method of detecting copies) my hub is not returned in the search at all.  Instead, sitting at No.1 is Tumblr, albeit a cached copy. 

    So, how long will it take to get rid of the copy cat's cached duplicate, and why is Google completely banishing my hub from the search results?

    You can request, through this link, for Google to remove the cached copy.

    Yes, you can do this to anybody's web page. As long as the cached page is not accurate. Since the live page no longer exists, the cached copy is not accurate and will be removed. From my experience, usually takes less than 48 hours.

      Cool, I'll do that then.  Incidentally, I can't see my last post on this thread - but you've just answered my question, so you must be seeing it!

        Odd thing is that I did see a second post from you and no longer see it either.

          Oh my - are Google gradually deleting me?  First my hubs and then my posts... big_smile

          Thanks for your help!
