I've had probably a dozen today. New signups with zero hubs they sign up and follow a bunch of hubbers. Does this mean my hubs are about to be scraped and posted all over the place? Why does this happen and is there not a way to block mass signups like this? I wish there was a way to not allow people to follow you.
sort by best latest
Have you checked any of your recent hubs for plagiarism?
What else have you noticed? I've noticed this and a lot of strange comments on hubs for awhile that I never saw previously.
Good point Christin! I had a comment on one of mine that said the commentor could have written it better than I did with a link to a tech website. I didn't click on it, but it was a guest user.
yes thanks but what if their account doesnt close
these are highly suspect though several in one day, follow immediately after signing up, and most have "sales" kind of names. I think it's not legit otherwise I would be thrilled :)
Have you seen any plagiarizing or portions of your hubs pop up elsewhere? Google is pretty good at sniffing this out.
I don't blame you for being suspicious.
Yes, it's happened quite often, which is what makes me a little paranoid perhaps.
