I have found a few forums where people have copied a paragraph or two in a forum discussion from one of my Hubs. Usually when they are discussing products which I write about.
How does Google view this in terms of duplicate content? Do they know people cut and paste into in forums and ignore it or consider it duplicate content just as if it was on another website?
Or should I join the forum, let them get the info from the horses mouth and help promote my Hub?
1) You should probably put that question to someone from Google. Or Paul Edmondson.
2) They don't actually care how the content got duplicated, that's the content owner's responsibility. Google considers the pasted snippets duplicated content because it is. How they use that evaluation further is unknown.
3) How would you jumping in with copy-n-paste plagiarist's benefit you?
