Any ideas why in searching the net I would find a title "How In Order To An Air Conditioning Capacitor - Cre8tor at Hubpages" that doesn't mention me, Hubpages or capacitors in the article? (No links either) It's not a copy of my Hub by any means but???
"How In Order To A Penny For Your Thoughts" (Sorry, couldn't pass it up)
Actually, it looks like the same site has titled a couple pages this way as well as other sites too...what the heck? I'm not sure if I should be upset or not. It'd be easier to decide if there was a link or copyright issue but I haven't seen one so far.
The same happened to me, I wouldn't worry about it. Try searching "susi10 on hubpages" and you'll get the real deal. There has to be at least 50 articles citing my name on all of them. Very annoying I must say! I don't think there is anything we can do about it either.
As Cardisa mentioned on the forum thread below, they think that by including "cre8tor on hubpages" in their titles, they will get traffic to their useless content. They aren't being nasty, just greedy for more traffic. It's just silly.
I think you'll find the answer in this forum:
I think it's an attempt to cite you. They probably feel bad for taking your work and feel that by throwing your name in there they are adequately giving you credit.
William15 - That's the thing, they're not citing me. The article never mentions me, capacitors or Hubpages and though it is about A/C, it never cites me. The title doesn't even make sense the way it's written.
Cre8tor....Ahhhhhh...what a world. God only knows why human beings do a whole lot of the senseless, crazy, useless things they do. Hard as we try, one of the few explanations I can come up with, is that far too many individuals forget to take their meds.
Breathe deeply....head up and forward we go.
Perhaps they cannot really write and they are secretly trying to 'share' your Hub(s). Do you know who the writer is and whether they have commented on your Hub(s)?
Or maybe they saw them on Facebook/Twitter and did not like them - that is their way of putting them down.
Seemed more like an attempt to gain traffic. Though I do well for myself here, I don't know that I pull enough weight for them to rake in on the use of my name in search engines.
I've just been dealing with a few copyright things here lately and stumbled upon this strand of titles (not all by the same author by the way) and wasn't sure if it was something I should take action on really. I'm trying to soak up all this legal stuff and as I am, I'm seeing things like this that I never saw before and not sure how to respond. It seems like in this case, there's nothing I can really do but it doesn't seem right. "I'm more than just a keyword you know. I'm a human being!" LOL

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...

Well, when you are suffering from depression and you opened your hubpages stats then you notice that 9 of your supposed to be featured hubs got unfeatured due to lack of traffic.. Very disappointing indeed but, can you guys here suggest some tips in improving hits? I don't want to spam my facebook...

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...

Hi everyone,I’ve been here 4 months and had hoped by now I’d be earning something from Google, but I’ve not earned a dollar. From feedback, I know the quality of my writing is strong so it’s something else that’s causing poor traffic and almost non-existent clicks. I read several...

I was just creating a hub about Grace Kelly, and as soon as I typed her name in the title area Hubpages popped up a title suggestion stating this is an "exclusive" title that should get good traffic. Has anyone had this happen? If so, did that hub get a lot of traffic?

For the first time, after publishing a new hub, I was not able to find it in google search for three days. I had to manually enter the hubs information into google so that it would be added to the search engines. Since then, the hub has only had 1 view from google... though yahoo search seems...
