My 2nd best performing hub has been copied by someone on blogspot. It actually has been there since last year but I just found it today. So, I just filed a DCMA with Google and it will be gone soon. I notice he has copied the other 2 articles. He has probably forgotten about the blog.
What I find funny is that I have a link to the original article in the text and so now I have a backlink from him Not that it will give me anything from this crappy site.
My article is still tops on Google and third overall for the category.
It never ends. I am glad you found him. How did you do it?
I just copied some text from my hub and pasted it into Google. I do it occasionally. This one was still getting good traffic so I hadn't checked it before.
This site captured one of mine. It's like a photo of articles. My article has all formatting, photos, HP logo etc intact. Even has my hub comments. I would have thought it just linked to my hub, except navigation bar shows otherwise, and I found the site by copying a line from my hub and pasting into Google.

Seems like integrity is seriously lacking! That is not in the spirit of blogging-what I like so much about it are the personal experiences shared!
Blogger took the article down. The blog is still up though...all 2 posts. I have a feeling he may have gotten dinged before.
Question - to check for stealers I paste content from my hub pages into google search is that right?

Not a happy bunny. Following on from finding one of my hubs copied, and filing a DMCA, I've been checking other hubs. One that I did kind of expect to do well has never quite got the traffic I'd hoped. Have just done a...

So I just had my first article copied. I knew it would probably happen eventually, but though I was prepared for the inevitability, it still makes me very mad. Besides filling a DCMA, which I did immediately once...
