    Okay ladies and gentlemen I apologize if this has been posted in the forums before but I just found this.

    It's Google's handy dandy little scraper reporting tool!
    Yes, if someone has scraped your content, you can use this to report it directly to Google.

    This is the link to the form:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/vie … mp;ndplr=1

    You pull up the little form, and copy the search query from Google that gave you the nasty little scrapers sites in search.
    I used the first line of my article.

    Then you type in the original site's address (yours).

    Then you copy and paste the vile scrapers url (theirs).

    Then you add addition details as you see fit.
    (keep it clean though)

    Click submit and send the info straight to Google!

    I have no idea what the turnaround time is on this considering Google is probably getting TONS of these reports.

    I just thought I would pass this on to my fellow Hubbers.

      It's a temporary form I think. Google are only collecting data with this form so that they can tweak their algorithm. They won't actually do anything about an individual problem.

      Still it's worth reporting, because loads of scraper sites are showing up above my hubs in their search engine.

    Thanks for finding this link. The problem has happened often with my hubs. I would hope they would take action.
