MORE stolen hubs - June 2013

    Quick note to alert everyone of another site with stolen hubs. I have added a comment on the bottom of a couple of the original hubs I spotted, in an effort to tip off the hubbers.

    Is it possible to have one single page or forum thread where we post the names of offending sites, so everyone can visit it regularly to check for current updates? I'd find it much easier to visit a site and see if anything looked familiar than continually have to cut and paste sections of my hubs to search for copies.

    Here's the most recent site I spotted. Many of the stolen hubs were added to it in January 2013. Worth looking at it if your stats have dropped.

    STOLENhealthforpeoples.com ... with the word STOLEN removed.

      Added to my awatch list. I'm new but I will definitely keep an eye out. Thanks for the heads up. Copy +paste..... Way easier than using your brain. Since it's mainly from China and other countries im guessing there's nothing we can do about it...I'm a newbie so any insight on this would be nice.

    This site has been flagged up before - it's one of the 16 or os sites scraping our content, operated by one guy in China.  One of the latest threads is here:

    http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/112612

    I'll keep asking for one of these threads to be stickied - it's around two months since the original sites were discovered and people are still not aware of them.

    Nothing of mine has been stolen yet, that I know of, but is there anything that can be done if it happens? I'm sure it's bound to eventually...

      This obviously seems to be an ongoing problem, but I'm new and this is my first time hearing about it.  Do the stolen hubs ever get taken off of his site?

      The host is not replying to DMCA's - he's a crook.

    Oh, I am SO over having my hubs stolen. The internet is peppered with my work. The vast majority of my traffic comes from google in a number of different countries which is great ... but my stats are dropping and I could turn chasing thieves into a full time occupation.

    I have a couple of websites that I don't actively use, but I'm thinking I'll start writing on them instead of here and see if they manage to be less popular with the thieves.

      Reported this site in this thread:  http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/115069

      So far, only 8 hubbers have filed DMCAs with Google.  Similarly, few have filed against rank08 or cararticle.  I guess people are not interested due to the drop in traffic.  It's worth pointing out that some of these sites, in some instances, are outranking hubs - which isn't helping the traffic situation.

    Yep. Them too.

    And what's the go with "freedom's phoenix" site?  They come up with my hubs in google. When you click on the link you get to taken to their site. When you click to read the full story you get redirected back to HP. I've had 30 visits from them in my stats.

    So are we supposed to be complaining about them too? Or is their approach 'legal' and somehow considered helpful? I'm toying with the idea of writing to their admin people but the whole process is just becoming a right pain.

    Just found that some of my hubs are now showing on cararticle (they weren't last week!), so I shall be filing a DMCA.
