I have been spending the afternoon searching for copied content. I have now found 3 of my articles plagairized. That aside, I found something strange that I can't make heads or tails of. Do a google search for sayersj (dot) com hubpages. If I just go to sayersj (dot) com, I see a blog site, but no hubpages. However, when searching I see all of these indexed pages that start with that webpage. When you click on one it takes you to hubpages sites. Do the google search and check it out. Anyone know what is going on?
I got the index without the hub pages yesterday and have no idea whatsoever to do about it. Since I have made almost nothing this month more investigation needs to be done.
Not that I can see. It is not just my hubs either. There were a lot of hubs and even Hubpages topic pages. Profile pages too.
me too just some ones blog.. go back and find it and copy and paste the link instead if writing it out. it makes it easier for us to find.
that's strange but definitely not surprising. Once your content is out on the internet people will always plagiarize stuff whether it be a few lines or a whole paragraph. Its just the way the game works. But good luck anyways.
It is illegal, so I find it very frustrating. I am finding several of my hubs are just copied and pasted. Pictures, sidebars that encourage sign ups at hubpages, etc. I wish there was more we could do than just file the DMCA complaint. Here's hoping for a better way to get the thieves in the future...

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...

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...

I understand that content won't be removed if there is a copy elsewhere on the internet when it isn't possible to determine which came first and which was copied.However, is there a way to adjust the copied content filter to require a manual screening in egregious cases?For...

Unfortunately (and quite by accident) I discovered another site that appears to have HP content duplicated upon it. I have found one of mine, copied within two weeks of when I originally published it. I have found other hubbers work also on the site. I have now filed a DMCA.I'm not going to give it...

As hubbers, we know that our content can and will be copied. We file DMCA complaints. We try to use CopyScape. We try to sign up for Google alerts.Is there any other way to help protect our content BEFORE it happens, rather than suffering the after-effects of losing Google traffic and having...
