    This 'author' who founded the site copied one of my top articles. Probably a lot more copied content on there...

    He seems to have a Google+ profile, might as well try to contact him there? https://plus.google.com/112003488454981569114/posts

    I have tried unsuccessfully to get my copied hubs back, it is almost impossible

      Hubs get scraped all the time there is nothing you can do.  The Internet is full of NO TALENT Lackies that think it's okay to steal the work of others and try to make a buck. And large companies could care less - it is what it is.

      What I do on work I publish on my own sites is embed links that are short links that go to my affiliates so that when my work is scraped and stolen the links are stolen as well. And if those links get published elsewhere I will get paid for them.  Scrapers don't do it manually and it would take too much time for them to edit the scraped content. So they are in effect doing me a favor.

      So as you write try to think of ways that you can embed your content so that it benefits you.

        This sounds brilliant. Can you embed links in your HP work or just on your own sites?

        That works for some scrapers - sadly some just steal the text and the only thing we can do is file a complaint.

    Hi Simey,

    How did you know your work  was copied? Did you use copyscape or did HP show your hub as Duplicate?

    Please let me know.

      I simply copied a small part of my hub and 'searched' for it in Google.

        I have often wondered if we are really doing these thieves a favor by drawing attention to them. I mean, now most of us have visited their page just to see what they had done instead of just looking at your hub with the same content.

          Not really - the copied article was ranked one below mine in Google search - so a few visits won't make any difference - in other cases I've seen the copied article ranks above the original so it's in the best interest of the original author to get it taken down.

            He's got social media buttons all over his site - go tweet plagiarism at him... I bet those articles come down pretty sharpish!

    Oh no, another copier of hub content. They target this writing community because they are after quality articles, and nicking them is easier than researching and creating their own.
