It looks like if you have socio-political hubs, or environmental ones, you might find yours here:
http:// www .politics-socialissues. com/
And if you add: /?s= and your HubPages username after the .com, you can more easily search for your work on there. i.e. http:// www .politics-socialissues. com/?s=cclitgirl
(Link disabled to not give them a backlink; take the spaces out and it'll take you to that website.)
Happy DMCA filing.
Good catch - he's got some of mine and I'll be filing with both Google and adsense.
On second thought, maybe I won't be filing with Adsense - there are no adsense ads on the pages. Or any other monetization.
Are we accomplishing something, or will this new site soon have ads? Have to keep a watch on it.
Since there's no adsense I'd file with the host.
http://www.whoishostingthis.com/politic … issues.com
Thank you - I've been unable to locate the host. I'm not sure if this is correct - the location of the host is given in the US while the site appears to be in Korea, but it is a start and I've filed with ixwebhosting.
I checked a few of the listed scraper sites and they are all coming up as hosted with IXwebhosting.
The ones I checked are also all showing as having the domain registrar as Crazy Domains.
And the owner is listed with a Chinese address.
http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/r … issues.com
I got the same thing with Crazy Domains and China. There are also references to Korea here and there.
A little concerned with the ix place - their website gives no address for abuse. Filing with the help desk produced an email that requested I verify information; that turned out to mean giving them a physical address and signing up with their site, which I declined to do. I also got a security alert about their email and site from my virus protection. Not good signs.
*edit* I replied to their email, asking for an address to file a DMCA at. All I got was another request to give them a physical address and sign in to their site. This one is a dead end, particularly as I'm still getting an alert on the email of "Be careful! This sender failed our fraud detection checks."
Yes, it seemed to me to be impossible to get a response without giving them your life story.
How odd - google earth shows their address as that of ecommerce.com, not ixwebhosting. Why does that not surprise me?
*edit* actually, mapquest shows a variety of businesses at that address. Maybe it's at least semi-legit.
Possible good news: ecommerce.com has replied to my email to ixwebhosting. They acknowledge receipt of the DMCA and request another email as verification of my signature (if I understand them). This email was very pleasant and professional, from their legal dept. - I will work through them and find out if they need more examples to shut this guy down. God knows we can absolutely flood them with DMCA's. Assuming we have the right host!
I have yet to hear from Adsense, though - hope we aren't moving too fast to cost him his adsense.
This is the problem. Adsense usually takes months to deal with DMCA's. By the time they look at it, the websites should have been removed and there will be nothing for adsense to go on.
An additional suggestion - if the hosting company is not legitimate, filing DMCA complaints will be useless. You can however go after their domain name.
Their live help might be more helpful?
I noticed that there was no page to file DMCA's which is not good, but they seem to be a legitimate company.
I found this but it is very old so might be out of date. It confirms that ecommerce.com is a parent company though.
There are two in there under my name. One was written by marcoujor and the other I don't remember who wrote it, but they are both verbatim and under the H.O.W titles!
Thanks for alerting us about this. I found one of my hubs on this site.
I found another subdomain that copied multiple hubpages articles (including one of mine). This is his subdomain: [www.]bubblews.com/account/16613-chotu125
It's so sad that people do this, and not consider all the efforts we've poured in our work.
I did a search and found four of my hubs there. Thank you for the heads up!
Didn't find any of mine but found one from case worker, in fact they had just linked back to the hub pages site!
hmm ... what to do, what to do....
My quandary ...
Yep, he has a bunch of mine too, but, relative to this category - none were traffic barn-burners,
PLUS, he left the links back to my HP profile and library in place. (curious)
*I always add in-text links to my profile, and a list of associated hubs - those links are still intact on the scraper site - might help me more than hurt me.
For myself, since he does not appear to have adsense in-place, I think I'll wait and see ....
My heart sank when I saw the title of this forum thread. Time to check the site out and do another round of filing complaints!
So, do we think this is the same scraper as the other ones we have seen lately?
