When I search for Pani Google HQ I get my blog, then some clickbank site, then my HP article.
My question is - who the hell is this and what are they doing?
It seems if I follow their link I just end up back on HP but I can't see the angle - are they stealing my content or somehow getting some benefit?
Looks like they're using Hubpage RSS feeds to build content pages on their website. Possibly for a purpose in the future?
As for who it is:

Thanks Garrett. I figured out the damage this does to me and other hubbers. Someone searching who lands on this site first is offered the choice of either reading the original article OR some other dubious action.
This is a negative effect on my traffic and other people.
I don't know what if anything can done about this, and I don't know why they rank higher than the original articles.
I am sick to my stomach. Traffic is bad anyway without someone stealing, interfering with what little I have.
could work as a backlink to your hubs- scrapers from Latvia (the tel are fr Latvia). If they can outrank your hubs, it means G is a mess.
Yes, I thought that at first. The problem is that a searcher just picks up the first site which is theirs, and although there is a link to me there is also other links going on. That means that ALL my potential traffic for the so called linked hubs goes through their site first.
It would seem they set up an RSS so my stuff is automatically copied and linked in - so everything I do now immediately gets outranked by the spammer.
I'd like a reason now why I shouldn't delete all my hubs and republish them in bits in my blog which is ranked HIGHER than the spammer.
Dont worry too much about it. There is almost nothing you can do about someone posting your rss feeds anywhere on the net. (thats what rss feeds are for in the first place, I guess) The pros are you get backlinks and more visitors.
I am owner of clickbank.lv - I am using RSS feeds from various sources to make one place where everybody can get hot info about news in internet marketing.
I chosed authors and sources which I feel have good writing style and valuable content.
I am placing "Read more" link to original sources - so authors can get extra trafic to their articles.
I am adding value to those feeds:
1) Packaging - I add pictures for feeds without pictures
2) Adds free place - in clickbank.lv there are no AdSense, No banners - readers can focus on their topics.
3) I removed broken characters - there are problems with fonts etc I made software which deals with all those issues
4) FILTERING feeds - thats esential because most of HubPage authors are shifting, they start write about SEO and then shift to BinLaden or other stuff. I am filtering out those RSS with special software I have made. I am building my keywords data base and checking if some author is shifting from main topic.
There are just 1 link "Get solution" - thats redirects to marketing solutions related to topics. I focus on 25% people who do not like to read a lot but just take solution. Acording to marketing theory all people divides in 4 parts and 25% of all people do not like to read a lot of info but want to get to core and get solutions. Thats my target audience. But all the rest 75% is yours audience.
I investigated RSS feeds copyrights issues and found that what I am doing is legal. If not - please explain to me, and if this is realy not legal - I will close that site.
As you see I am not hiding, my name is Janis Supe and you see my real photo in profile.
I believe I did Win-Win solution:
1) Authors gets 75% trafic and benefits from that site.
2) Readers have place without Ads and high value articles anotations to make decisions what article to read more or try solution which I offer for particular topics (i am still improving that)
3) I get affiliate commisions and I learn a lot from the best authors
Mark, and any HubPage author, If you still feel that this is not Win-Win situation for you - then write to me (check my profile) and I will remove your RSS feeds.
I have learned SEO, because I get higher rank. And I am offering to people to learn SEO too. Maybe you should build some new site with your RSS feeds and your favorite authors feeds and you will get TOP position? Think about that. But thing more about value you are creating - not just position
Well isn't that honorable of you to come here and explain yourself.
Feel free to throw my RSS feed up there. I can't see how it can do me any damage.
I have a few hubs that can benefit from your theme, such as using Tumblr for Backlinks and other such topics.
I notice your site is running a little slow, maybe review your choice of theme? You may also get hit with a duplicate content penalty because so many people use articlesbase articles already.

For people who never use RSS feeds for any reason, I reckon it would be worth giving them the option of disabling the feature.RSS feeds make it too easy for content to be stolen.
