    Why has that disappeared when I go to "my account" to check for broken links, etc?  Will HubPages still inform us if one of our hubs has been copied?

      (at least) Three of my hubs are currently copied-- but I don't see the 'c' symbol in the key at the bottom

        That is what sparked this query.  I am wondering if we will still be informed by HP if our hubs are being copied or if they have given up and want us to police our own hubs.  Many of us do not have the expertise or time to do it once we have hundreds of hubs.  I am hoping that they will still notify us.

    I thought that HP only checks now and again. It's not a regular service though, maybe it should be and maybe the answer to our traffic dip?

      I doubt it has anything to do with our traffic dip, since only a handful of Hubbers had the feature anyway (HubPages have said they only check high-traffic Hubbers). 

      Jason did explain it's expensive for HubPages to do the checks, which is why it's so infrequent and limited.

        If that is the case, I guess I went from being a high traffic hubber to not being one.  My traffic has definitely tanked compared to the past.  So now what?  Is there an easy, inexpensive way to check to see if our hubs have not been stolen without eating up too much of our available time?

          Someone suggested in a similar Q&A to google a couple sentences from your hub. Your hub should be the top (or close to it) result, with no other exact matches showing up.

          I use Copyscape.    It's not that expensive, really - so long as you don't get obsessive about using it!   I run it about once every three or four months.

          Peggy!  I thought I'd lost my mind!  My traffic went "pffft" this month!  OY!  Glad to hear it's a common issue! Any idea what's up?  (Sorry off topic here.. my bad!)

    Create a Google alert for certain phrases or words from your text.  It works well with a small typo purposely inserted, even a double period (..) or anything else out of the ordinary that will automatically trigger the alert and send you an email.

      Nice. Never knew about Google alerts. Thanks!

    I am glad to hear this information as my traffic has also diminished.
