Has anyone discovered their travel Hubs stolen by this site? Have Hubpages notified you yet?
They've copied loads of mine.
Thanks for posting. Yes, I just found one of mine. No, I wasn't notified with a copy alert from HP. It looks like they have used a translator. Have you tried using the contact email? My copyright is still at the bottom. sigh. It's clearly obvious these are all stolen articles.
I simply sent the email and just received a response. Here it is:
Thank you for your letter.
Sorry for this situation - i removed your article from the site. The articles on the site are published by our team of writers, and, unfortunatelly i cannot always control if they were stollen because they change text and it passes CopyScape check, so i cannot see if it is not original.
> I suggest you also remove shinkicker's hubs
Can you please tell me what articles on this site are shinkicker hubs, so i can remove them and fine the writers that published it.
Thank you and Happy New Year
I had asked him to also remove your articles, but as you can see, they go through a system that passes copyscape. If you want to contact him, I believe it's safe. Mine is already removed within minutes. Good luck, and thanks again for posting. If you want, I can send you his email via your HP mail address.
You're welcome. Hope it gets worked out. Let us know.
Happy new year to you!
Thanks for the heads-up on this, and I am glad they were responsive. Based on the language in the message you got, it does sound like there's some translation going on. I will check my travel hubs.
Well, I checked the site further and went through the first five articles listed on the side bar. Apparently the 'team of writers' have discovered HP. They are all taken from HubPages; vocalcoach, silvershark, prarieprincess, Amanda Severn, Chuck, go-barbara-go... I suggest anyone who has travel articles to check the site.
There are no ads on the site.
Yes, strange. I just checked the site to see if the one travel piece I published is on. It isn't. But I had a quick look through the site and was also surprised to see no ads. I wonder what the point is? Unless the owner wants to build up a big library and then start monetizing?
If there's a multitude of hubs on here, maybe a DMCA is in order?

Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. The first round of changes we have been working on is the topic hierarchy. ...

That is another copying site which has been stealing our hubs from Hubbers at Hubpages. My hub How to Cure Vitiligo Naturally was copied and pasted onto this website: <link snipped> under the name "Zimmer". This bad guy changed the pictures but didn't event bother to...

I found that the entire domain has been copied. I filed DMCA takedown notices for four of my hubs. If you have hubs on WeHaveKids, your hub has been plagiarized and you should file too. All the hubs are located under the main domain arttek . spb . ru(spaces added for obvious reasons). That...

I've just found a number of my hubs on this site: www(dot)toknowthings(dot)com. Looks like there has been wholesale copying from HP going on so you might want to check for your articles. I will be filing DMCAs tomorrow - I'll post the details of the hosting etc if anyone else...

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on writing better articles. I like my articles but want to make them better.

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...
