I have just had one of my main hubs copied in its entirety on the website www.gtksa.org11 - it's a 'foreign' Gerogia Tech site.
What is really ironic is that it's my site about creating backlinks - in it I comment on how some sites are scraped (or copied entirely) and that you can at least benefit if the original links you included are also copied.
In this case they were, but it's such a high profile hub for me that I have still filed the usual complaint - interesting to see if my scraped work is deleted!
I went to the site but I could not find anything in English. Where did they post your article?
I have had a couple of articles copied almost verbatim. The copied articles continue to get decent search engine traffic. I am not sure if they would be getting more if they had not been copied. But I decided not to bother trying to take the copies down.
Simey, can you please edit your post so the link is not live? Why reward content thieves with a backlink?
Hubpages has a cool feature that searches for copied sites - when you go to 'my account' and list your hubs - any hubs that have been copied have a red (c) next to them - you can then go into the hub and see the URL where the copy is.

Someone here at HubPages has copied one of my articles. It was actually HubPages that added a copyright symbol letting me know. I flagged and notified HubPages of this but the story is still up. Why would I have to file...

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely...

Today I found one of my hubs copied on another site. From a quick look, I imagine that the whole blog is compiled from copied articles. It's a WordPress blog Reality Inspiration. Clearly her...
