    So, yeah, this guy at blogspot plagiarized my article, then took it down, but my article still appears in google search queries under his blogspot URL.

    I requested a search cache removal, but was denied because

    "The content you submitted for cache removal appears on a live page.

    As you may know, information in our search results is actually located on publicly available webpages. Even if we removed this page from our index, the content in question would still be available on the web.

    To remove this information from our search results and from the web, you'll need to contact the webmaster of the site in question. Once the webmaster makes the change, you can submit a request to remove the cached copy or simply wait for our search results to reflect this change the next time we crawl the page. Important! The site owner will need to demonstrate that the page has been changed since Google last crawled it."
    As I said, my copywritten material has been removed from the site, but my pictures and my article verbatim still appear under google search at this plagiarists site. His other articles appear plagiarized as well.
    I went ahead and filed a copyright infringement thingy with google, but since my work is no longer there, I dunno if that will help.

      Aaannndd of course, copyright removal was rejected, as I suspected it would be, considering my work was replaced with other plagiarized material.

      I just want the google search cache removed to no longer show this thiefs site using mine, or anyone elses, work.

      What are my options from here, webernet gurus?

    And another blogspot stealing the same article, which STILL shows my content, request denied. Seriously, what do I need to do to get this taken care of? There is no good way to contact google concerning this.

      I had a plagiarized article on blogspot that cannot be found in search after my request to Google. However, I can still find it on the web in an obscure place. It was on a page right below my article originally. I decided if no one can find it, maybe I should let it be.  It sounds similar to your situation.

        Sometimes, you have to wonder if it is worth replying.

        The article that was still up was removed by, I assume, the thief, after I posted a response on the stolen articles.
        Ill check with google in a few days to see about getting the search cache removed.

    There's always the possibility of geo-targeted content. Meaning, the plagerizer simply removed it from your view. Who knows. I like to publicly confront people on their Google+ pages about stealing content. Works fast. Good luck!

      Saga - What do you say on Google+? Mine and another hubber's article were copied, and he is on Google+. I am afraid to get in trouble with Google. I know others have done similar things to scrapers.

    I have to say I have no idea what you can do. I once had the case of an article of mine. I wrote to the blogger, no results. I wrote to his hosting and they made him take it down, BUT only a few days later the same article appeared again on another blog the same guy started! I gave up

    In my instance, the individual had a post on their Google+ account linking to the blog post that they had ripped from me (with my aff. tracking cookies and all). So I simply commented on that Google+ post, "this content was stolen from (my website), I have filed a DMCA with Google and recommend you delete the material immediately."
