    I never posted it.

    Can anybody explain it? For I am confused...

    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.]

      EDIT: had to put spaces in so the link didn't go thru. still learning about this stuff in forums, sorry about that.

      A quick google of her name leads to a porn website. sorry.

        I guess she likes me.

        Didn't find the no-no site though. You sure?

              But lists her blog as
              http://  rapidcityexchange.  com/  blog/
              which is nothing more than a trading post website.

            I went there. It wasn't a no-no site. Seems like ok person. Saw the other link, too. I think it is the same person.

            Btw, she got that "Emerald City" from one of my former hub titles, which is now "Before Life and Afterlife".

            Oh, well... Another internet mystery.

              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.

    After seeing your Post, I searched the site and found one in my name too @ zeitnews.org/wikimedia/index.php/Anamika_S_On_HubPages I have no idea who wrote it or posted it.

    1. Mary McShane profile image76
      Mary McShaneposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      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.

      I guess we Hub Folks are a popular bunch. lol

        now if we can only parlay that popularity into views and eventually into dollars, that'd be great.

          I checked out Anamika's link to there. I wonder if we're all there. lol

          I've decided that this all a little too strange. So went back to my op and broke the link.

            I'm there as well - part of a Hub and part of someone else's news article are mashed up together.

            I've found my name in headlines of a few blog articles that have nothing to do with me and asked that my name be removed. Two places removed it, the third, not yet.

      Anamika - the user who wrote the one with your name on it is here:
      http://www.  zeitnews  .org/wikimedia  /index.php/User:   KraigMcColliste

      Dental Therapist Roling from Onanole, has pastimes which include climbing, maid agency and coin collecting. Recalls what an incredible place it was having gone to China Danxia.

      The link does lead to a web-site: part time maid agency singapore

    Uh-oh. You are right. Both sites are no-no sites.

    But the zeitnews site she posted me at is legit, thank goodness.

    However, she may be using the term 'paradigmsearch' as a concept and not a hubber name-- not even knowing, likely, that the term is used as a hubber name.  Maybe you are taking this too personally smile .

      "Paradigmsearch on Hubpages" and "Anamika on Hubpages"? Plus the emerald city coincidence? I don't think so. It was a definte reference to us. And I bet you are there, too. big_smile

    Thank you for posting this Paradigmsearch. I have been able to find a few websites with by searching "cardisa on hubpages". If I find stolen content I'll post them here.

    These aren't stolen, just the title...lol

    there are too many to list here. The articles are all gibberish!

      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.

      Why are they doing this? What is their purpose? hmm

        paradigmsearchposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        I have likewise been unable to figure that out.

        Cardisaposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        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.

    Mary,
    I was curious about mine so I thought that I would try something. I Googled "zeitnews and hubpages" and it showed a list of Hubs and authors from here, it looked like.

  7. susi10 profile image96
    susi10posted 4 years ago

    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.

      Cardisaposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      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.
