    One of my hubs has seen an exponential increase in traffic over the last month or so (which is great!). But, it has a RED COLOURED COPYRIGHT logo in front of it. When i opened it, it says that your content may have been stolen. However, i cannot confirm if it has been stolen or not. Can someone guide as to how can track or confirm it as stolen by using some software or website which helps one in doing so in order for me to take necessary action. Thanks!

      There is a 'copied hubs' section in your account which will give you all of the details of where your content may have been copied

        Oh, silly me. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction :-)

        I have never seen a "copied hubs" section in HP. I assume  this is something that only shows up when a hub has been copied.

          It is one of the tabs at the top of the stats page.  http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats

          It's been here for as long as I can remember actually.  Hopefully you've just been fortunate enough to not have copied hubs smile.  When you go to your account your default page is the Statistics section, which is highlighted in the green bubble near the top left of the page.  Along that same line at the end is a section called "Copied Hubs" which will show you where the the copied hub is.

    That's cool that there is a feature on Hubpages that lets you know where your content may have been copied. I didn't know that.

    Just because I think it's useful here's also how you can find copied stuff of yours (like maybe you have a blog or write elsewhere and people are copying that).

    You can copy and paste part of what you wrote, about a sentence or two, into Google search. You may want to put quote marks around it too. Click on search and see what, if anything, comes up in the results.

      I tried your technique too but didn't manage to find the copied hub maybe because the one who copied my hub changed the name of the hub. Thanks for the tip though.

        If you post the Hub or the title of the Hub here I can see if I can find it.

          Thank you SpaceShanty but I already found it. The copied hubs section gives you the direct link to the website where it was copied to.

            Ah, good to see you found it.

            The warning provided by HP is good but sometimes it takes weeks or months for a warning to show up and cannot be solely relied on.

            I would suggest you use copyscape.com on a regular basis to check for copies of your Hubs.
