There are a few more but i can't seem to find them on HP
Thanks for the heads up.
I reported my copied Hub to Google under Blogger category - they always remove these within 48 hours when I file the formal complaint. I lost many page views to the thief this time.
I just went to the site and just about ALL of the travel ones have been stolen. I found a few and left a post with some hubbers directly but it's rampant. How do you go about shutting down a whole site for content theft?
sorry to hear this happened to you. hopefully you'll be able to resolve the issue.
Hi Steven, it wasn't my hub which triggered this. Another hubber complained about their hub being unpublished by HP for being duplicate when in fact it was stolen so I checked the site and found all this. I did not find any of mine there.....yet.
Thanks so much for that community spirited advice. I don't think any of my hubs have been copied, but I did look at two of the Travel Cloud pages and the corresponding Hub pages mentioned, and they are identical. I saw on Patty Inglish's copied hub about the railroads in Ohio, that she's posted a comment (thankfully the only comment the plagiarised copy has received!) asking for it to be removed at once.
I sincerely hope she is successful and I hope your efforts to highlight the problem can be rewarded in some way.
I just posted more from the same guy who posted on the site you wrote about. Here's the forum I made.
Sorry about that. I tried to find all the hubs on there but some I could not locate. Please file with Adsense using this form: https://support.google.com/adsense/cont … eport?rd=1
There's a TON of hubpages stuff on there!
Even the one that's the HOTD right now (strawberry jello cake) ... I'm searching through them right now to see if any of my hubs are up there...
There also seems to be a lot of HOTD Hubs copied onto this website. If one of your Hubs was HOTD recently, you might want to take a look.
Should we post anything in the comments section to notify them that this content is stolen from HP? Is there anything HP can do directly? Considering it literally looks like these people just went and basically copied everything off of Hubpages...
If I find any more links that I know are items from Hubpages, I'll post them in here to help let other Hubbers know so they can take action.
It's their ENTIRE site! I've been posting to people whose sites I've read here. It's sickening! Can HP do anything about this?
Unfortunatley HP does not own the copyright to our content so only us, the copyright owners, can do anything.
@JessBraz, that's a great idea, posting on their hubs that it was stolen.
Yeah but you know what, Cardisa - HP SHOULD care because if it's diverting views from hubpages it affects THEIR income too. Just saying.
Things like this make me so mad!
I emailed a couple of Hubbers to let them know directly...
Should we also post in the comments section on the travelcloud website that we know this content was stolen or should we leave that up to the hub authors themselves? If the people at travelcloud all of a suddent start getting comments galore on "their" articles that the content is stolen, maybe they might react?
I sure as heck hope so. This is crazy and unfair to everyone who worked so hard to just have all of their stuff blatantly ripped off like this! I'm sending emails to a few of the hub owners whose stuff I've seen on there... Not everyone on HP is active in these forums, so they might not see this and know to look for their content.
Thanks for the head's up. First time this has happened to me, that I know of. Grrr!

Please do NOT, give this guy a backlink. Notice my original post only had links to the original hubs. Please break the link to the stolen content.
A PR 6 link or higher is a good thing for him.
Yeah, I was trying to make it so the links to the travelcloud website wouldn't actually work, but still put the info in their so hubbers can find their work quickly.. I put spaces in the link figuring that would prevent them from being active links, but it didn't seem to work? I'm fixing it right now. My bad
You have to put the space after the www and before the .com for them not to link.
Here's what I found about them:
I also looked up the phone number that is listed on the above and found this:

So - if they are known scammers and diverting traffic thereby stealing potential income do you think HP might intervene a little? What say you Robin and crew?
Thanks very much for the information. I'm filing a violation report. It's the first time (that I know of) that one of my Hubs was stolen. It's a weird, and not very good, feeling.
So, where is the best place to report this? To Google? I've never had to do this before so I'm not sure where to start.
Here is the form to use to report to Google: https://support.google.com/legal/contac … ct=blogger
Report it to HubPages admin .. they might guide you next steps
Found mine on there by typing my name into the search box. Will report to Google DMCA and Adsense as well.
We are trying to help with this as well and we have sent off notifications to our AdSense rep.
That's great Paul! A lot of hubebrs will be pleased.
Paul, as was mentioned earlier in this thread, it's very helpful for HP to get involved in fighting the scrapers and thieves. Is there any possibility of getting ongoing monitoring and intervention? We simply don't have the ability to fight this one-by-one.
The beautiful HOTD today with the strawberry Jell-O cake is there with photos & all, and even shows Heather's copyright notice.
Big props to Cardisa for letting everyone know this is happening.
I saw Heather's copyright notice too. How blatant is that, if the guy hasn't even taken the trouble to remove her copyright notice?! He's just copied and pasted - 10 seconds work. At least there can't be any dispute about the rightful owner of that article!
Cool! You're superheroes to me about this.
The list of links in the post on page one of this thread still show 'blue,' so maybe they need to be moderated from HP's end.
Those links are the actual hubs Marcy and not the stolen content. I have been very vigilant in trying to keep the thief from getting our valuable backlinks...lol What we have done is post the URL to the stolen content then post the hubs beside it so the hubbers have it much easier.
Cardisa - I wasn't referring to your post - there's one by another Hubber that appears to have live links to the site that stole hubs.
I'm sorry for not having been present in this thread as I was filing against those thieves and I'd like to thank Cardisa for her help and the way she handled that case.
Just in case you need more info about them, here's what I found:
Domain registrar: Name Cheap
Privacy: Whois Gard
Just to cheer everyone up (not) there are 102,000 results for "content scraping software" in Google. Wouldn't it be nice if this software could be removed from the web?
I also filed to NameCheap, their registrar. They sent me a reply that they will look into the case as well. Normally registrars don't really mind such things but this time they seem to be interested.
Yet another round.

Many of us here on HubPages bring our lives and struggles into our writing. We write to come to terms with the past or to tell our dreams of the future. Have you written your story in a hub-or hubs? Which one of your hubs tells your story and why did you decide to write it and post it?
