I gave some advice to a newbie a few weeks ago and noticed that they deleted their forum posts and now I've got some copied hubs..
Careful who you help- Why?
You have some copied hubs now? So, address the problem by contacting Hubpages Staff and have them removed.
Did you feel good when you helped them? And, now you're letting their actions to force you to turn negative. Thus, it turns your experience from feeling good, to feeling bad.
Help is derived from compassion. You help because YOU want to. Do so, but you shouldn't be surprised that someone takes advantage of your kindness.
I'm sorry you have copied hubs, but apparently valued material.
they are not on here anymore...
i found my hubs on some blogs on the same subject that i helped them with
Well, like I said, apparently they saw something of value. They went through the effort to copy and paste your hub into a blog and try to benefit from it. So they saw something.
I am just trying to point the positive side to it, instead of letting it affect you negatively. File DMCA against them, since your hub was up before their blog.
That's all I can say on it.
If I know something which can help someone I am going to share with them anything I know and not worry that they are going to take my work. Luckily I don't write anything that I believe copying would help anyone gain anything. It's my belief "anything I can do to help Hub pages helps everyone" me included. I have barely been around long enough to know what works but have recommended that some people check out hubs written by others. I really love the map capsule now that an eight year old taught me how to use it. LOL I recommend that to anyone who have places in their hubs. I have learned that what I write here is protected by hub pages as mine, and have recourse if someone takes it word by word. It's something you can look into.
why say anyhting at all?
I was merely pointing out a fact that we are all concerned lately with losing adsense and this may be one of the reasons
Hey Stacie, there are plenty of reason for the loss of Adsense and nothing specific is to be blamed solely.
I understand that you have copied hubs, and my reason for saying something was based on the negativity of your title for this thread.
It's not productive. Got it?
Stacie, I know what you mean; and I can see why you'd mention it. I've had that kind of stuff happen, and it irks the heck out of me (to say the least). You're right to mention it here, I think. Too many people (especially "newer" people) don't realize the degree to which stuff gets stolen, or the stuff people do to find what they steal. Up until this recent thing with a lot of people having major drops in Ad Sense, I used to know that when I'd see a major drop it was the signal to start looking for stolen stuff. I'd find it, report it (when that would make a difference), and usually the earns would shoot back up again.
That sucks Stacie..but I believe in karma and payback is a bitch
p.s. How do you guys track down the copied hubs? Just copy/paste a few sentences into Google?
hey i used Google plagiarism checker and posted this ,this morning.these blogs don't have adsense so i didn't report DMCA
maybe i should...
as i stated earlier,be careful who you help because they may steal your work.
i am finding pieces of my articles on other blogs and websites and the same usernames of these websites and blogs are on here.
I strongly suspect they are coming on here to take what they want because now it's known that they can.
