            Thank you Polly for recognising it, and thank you Nell for bringing it to my attention.
            The copier is obviously extremely stupid because this hub was not written to make money - has anyone looked at the keyword competition for those keywords? - I wonder if this is payback for commenting on the thread the other day "serious attack on Hubpages" or something similar.
            Whatever, the guy is a useless waster. Why copy a hub that doesn't make money? Can't think on anything more stupid or time-wasting, so not a serous problem, Whoever the copier is, he's obviously THICK!

              Hi, Izzy, just thought you had better know. It seems that I have been using URLs wrong all this time! I didn't realise.

                Hey don't worry about it! I always use the address bar, but copying from the foot of the page is good practise for yourself when you want to promote your hubs - which I never do properly.
                Thanks again Nell. smile
                If you hadn't started a thread about this I would never have known! Mind you the link carries all the latest 60 day challenge hub rss feeds....he's maybe done us a favor! He's still a prick all the same smile

    Why are there trackers in the URL?

      Yes, I'll agree....WHY are you using trackers?

        Nell Roseposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        sorry, i thought it would be the best thing to do, I was so mad! won't do it again. I only added the URL, not sure what you mean by the trackers?

    You don't need to post this sort of thing here.  Admin prefers to be emailed directly about Hub authors who copy other Hub authors.

      Hi, Freya, yes he copied two so far, but I am not sure what they mean about the trackers? I only copied and pasted at the bottom of his page?
      nice to see you!

        Isn't Hub Pages had put strict rule on something like this? I guess some people just really do not have pride as writer. hmm

        Just Flag his profile, Nell.

          Hi, Freya, I just jumped in with both feet as usual, but I was so mad! I did flag him, but I would have strangled him if I could have got my hands on him!

            This had happened to me once. There is new Hubber copied all content in one of my Hub comment capsule into his and created new hub from it. I asked him to take responsiblity and he turned down that Hub. The problem solved but the the unpleasant feeling stayed. yikes

            I will lend my hands to help you strangled him for sure, Nell.

    Do you always use the "link to this page" option? when you need to share a hub?

    (thats my guess?)

    1. Nell Rose profile image90
      Nell Roseposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Hi, yes don't tell me I have been wrong all this time? sorry if I am a dumbass just thought it was right!

      1. sunforged profile image68
        sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        your fine..

        But, the purpose of that button is to insert a tracker into the link,

        chekc out the help center to learn what that means

        99% of the time thats the way to go.

        But since it is a promotional technique it is frowned upon an din fact disallowed in the hp forum

        I saw your profile so my assumption is that you always use that link.

        Just copy the adress bar/url bar when you need to share a hub in the hp forum


        also you should look into what an "anchored keyword link" is, so you can pretty up your profile a little

    Hi all.
    Sorry to hear about what has been going on with Hub stealing. I have just reported the Street View hub that he stole from Nell for being exactly that - stolen.
    I have made a note of this pratt's name and will not be accepting any comments, following, etc from him. Hope he/she gets booted.

      Babes, it does not matter one iota!
      OK so you quoted his tracker. So what? His account at Hubpages is going to be dead really soon.
      You brought him to our attention, and I thank you for that!

    Can anyone flag the hub Nell brought to our attention?

    It's mine and I have no idea why but I can't flag it - it just hangs.

      I already flagged it, Izzy. And no worries for anyone on the URLs. I just thought there was something strange going on. But now I see it's just from using the "Share" button. Sorry! smile
