Massive duplicates

    I just want to mention that if you do a search under cholesterol, the new has at least 8 articles that are identical and by 3 different people (maybe). I already flagged 6 last night that were the same article.

    This practice must be discouraged. HP should warn these hubbers and if they do not change their attitude, their accounts must be terminated.

    I flagged an absolute ton of them, all exactly the same but with different titles.

    And the same article is starting to appear all over again. I am sure it's the same person who has different accounts.

    I think I got them all.  If you see any more, don't hesitate to flag 'em!

    I'm keeping an eye out.  Usually after creating a certain number of accounts and having them all banned, a spammer will get the idea and give up.  wink

      Good work Maddie and the HubPages crew- I was just reading this article about HubPages quality here: (and this thread is a perfect example of what makes HubPages shine)

    Hopefully this spammer gets the message that Hubpages is not the place for them. Good work keeping on top of it.

    Can anybody tell me what's the sense of making identical pages of duplicate content?..
    I think it's useless for search engines. All outbound links from same domain (hubpages) will be deemed as coming from one and same source. Probably this lack of knowledge determines my non-spamming nature big_smile

    I guess he figures he'll make more money that way. I don't think he's a very smart spammer (if there is such an animal)
