I'm finding this site that appears to be a proxy (that's what it looks like to me) that has a LOT of my hubs. The thing is that it's appearing in Google search.
Here's a sample google search term that turns up my hub and this proxy site:
"That said, I'm sure it's incredibly helpful for those who work in fields (marketing) where there's a need to see how"
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=%22That+said%2C+I% … in+fields+(marketing)+where+there%27s+a+need+to+see+how%22
^^I know a "Let Me Google That For You" link is meant to be condescending, so I'm sorry about that. I don't mean to insult anyone, it's just the best way I could think of to clean up the url.
After that search runs, click: show omitted results (or whatever it says) to see the weird proxy thing that's going on.
This site seriously shows up in the search results for like 50% of the hubs I look for. (I'm on a DMCA spree right now.)
What do I do about a site like this? I filed a DMCA anyway, but it seriously looks like a proxy. I don't like/understand how it's showing up in Google search, though.
Anyone have an idea?
Your link is malformed
It's a proxy site. Jason from the HP staff commented on it here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/97314?p … ost2077611
