I googled one my hubs which is titled 'Generation Y what we want out of our careers and workplaces' and the first link that shows up on google is from a twylah.com. When I click on that link, it doesn't have a link to my article or words from my article but on the google search, the first few sentences from the actual hub show up as being from that page, so that's bugging me and I'm wondering how that happened.
I see you've found that your article has been copied. I've shared this link in the other threads you've posted, but for reference, here is our Learning Center entry on filing DMCA requests: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/how- … -complaint
Hi again Simone, do you think I can file a complaint for this site? because ohh this is hard to explain in writing, because when I google my article title it looks as though its coming from twylah, but when I open the page, there's no trace of the actual article (no title, no sentences nothing) so I don't know if it was copied but they took it down or they shared a link but deleted it?
I went there and it appeared it is a lot like Twitter. If they only posted 2 sentences and included your url, it might actually help you get more traffic.
Hi psyche, Hi Barbara, I've seen this site like 4 times now and I was starting to think it's similar to twitter and he probably just posted a link to the hub. But I must be really technically challenged because I can't find the link to my hub..psyche, if it's not too much to ask, can you show you me how you found the link? Because when I search on google, click the link, I get redirected to his homepage and I've clicked on all the tabs and stuff but I just can't locate it. This is so weird...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

I have to issue a grovelling apology here, I stuffed up mightily. I posted an explanation of how to claim authorship with Google, and made one small but extremely important mistake. For those who followed the original advice, my sincere apologies. You need to edit your profile and...

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...

I had a hub copied by another site. I sent a DMCA complaint and rather than removing my hub, they changed the title and the wording slightly. Is altering a hub for use on another site without the author's permission considered legal? Is this now considered a completely different...

Well I guess there is a first time for everything. Someone copied my hub on Is California Going Bankrupt? They copied the whole thing, word for word without credit or where it came from. So I'm going to have to file a complaint I guess. I've had other hubs copied in forums but they were being...

I just found that one of my Hubs was stolen in June 2014 and published in a magazine. I wouldn't have found out about it except that they have now put their magazine on-line. It was stolen by a slick looking magazine in Australia, and I am from the US. I told them if it wasn't...
