I'm glad it's not porn or worse. As such, not terribly concerned. Just confused...
[Edit/Update. As this thread evolved and things were discovered, I came back and broke the link. Safe site if you want to paste and go there though. Darned peculiar. Looks like others have had stuff posted under their names as well.]
lol - the no-no slang you refer to means porn, right? the rapid city exchange is not, but the hot single sluts and all cougar sites link up to porn sites. Glad it wasn't worse. If she went to the trouble of looking up one of your titles, it sounds like you have a real fan there.
that site is really strange, the way it uses certain people's names in titles and the body of the post has nothing to do with the title on the post with paradigmsearch's name on it. Go to inspect element and click on title bar and it will tell you the name of the user who wrote it.
It's strange, isn't it? I have found my name on two articles which are on very strange websites and they have no reason to put my name there. I thought it was just me, but clearly this is happening to many of us.
The weird thing is that non of the article made any sense and the titles had nothing to do with the page. I figure they think our names will get them traffic and they are using them as keywords for anyone who searches.
Yes! That is the answer, thanks Cardisa! I thought it was something they had against us, or that they wanted to be nasty but now I realize why they are doing this. It is a trend that is beginning to snowball. I am still worried.
On the bright side, we are very "popular" online if they think that our names will get them more traffic.
I'm getting worried now. I did a quick search of "susi10 on hubpages" and there are too many results that are including my name in their articles. It seems to be snowballing so much that one spammy site is now ranking higher up than my own subdomain! I am relieved that I am not the only one that is targeted, it seems that many sites are doing the same thing. What should I do and how will we stop this?
EDIT: I have began to research this using other hubbers names and it seems that some websites are using the same gibberish article repeatedly only they are changing our names. In fact, a lot are related to the Sochi Winter Olympics.
I think it's the same set of people or the same person. I also stand by the keyword thing. They just copy our titles for keywords sake hoping for traffic to be diverted to their stupid content. I don't think it's vindictive, just ignorance.
I am not sure what Google can do about this in terms of plagiarism.
In reviewing my traffic sources recently, I noticed that I was getting traffic from a site called traffup.com, which I had never heard of before. I went to the site and signed up for it to see what it was all...
