Nell Rose originally brought this to my attention, as she spotted an article of mine on this blog: http://documentariezblog. blogspot.co.uk/
I've spotted another one of mine there, and recognised others too. They seem to be targeting history hubs.
Just thought I'd bring it to your attention.
The one on the front page is a hub of Alastar Packer's. If you can still edit the link JKenny please can you put a gap in it, as currently we are giving this thief another backlink.
This is a blogspot blog so can be reported to Google:
https://support.google.com/legal/troubl … 14905?rd=1
Oh yeah, good point. I've just put a space in the link, so that it eliminates the backlinkk.
Thanks so much, Cynthia. What a miserable excuse for a blog. Couldn't find them on the first several Google pages but they need to be taught a lesson about thieving from Hubbers.
Unfortunately Alastar when they get shut down they will probably just move on to another site or start some other kind of scam.
While most of us hubbers would be mortified at being caught doing something as low as that these people just don't care.
Your right, Cynthia. These thieves are pitiful with their meandering plagiary. I always check the page ranks of stolen content and more often than not can't even find the scrapped hubs.
Why there is a sudden plague of copying history hubs is a bit of a mystery. Most of us write them because we love the subject not because they are big money spinners. If money is their object they could go after much more profitable topics.
Hiskleptomaniacs? Like stealing for the sake of it? Maybe they're aiming for quantity with the history ones. Had one that stole 4 or 5 history ones but had no ads or links...no nothing and could barely be found on Google. What's the point?!.
Good Grief !!!! You saw that Alastar: Battle of Blackstocks - The Gamecock vs Bloody Ban -- glad Cynthia caught it. How dastardly can they get? This is outrageous.
someone pointed out that my travel hub was copied they even took the exact adverts i used. I am also not doing as much as i usually make since that hub, could they be taking my traffic or ad revenue in anyway?
For what it's worth, Tashaonthetown, check Google, etc. and see where they are page ranked. If unfindable or so far back as to be nil on the pages you have little to worry about. Also check your own.
Other hubs stolen from EC Riley, Seabastian, Marie Mckeown, Christy Kirwan, Theophanes, another of Alastars, joshwilmoth, jimmythejock, cydro,
http:// prezi.com/ 6fleitngbewq/world-war-1/ also looks like a copy of Jimmy the Jock’s Life in the Trenches and is outranking it
Ain't it the truth, Cynthia. Not long ago had a dude want me to come do an exorcism at his house. Your the good and proper kind of strange.
It is a bit strange that since this has started all our traffic has gone down big time. I can't find one of mine on there, but I bet some of mine are out there doing better on the thieves site than my own!
there are so many sites now with plagiarized content i dont even know how to keep track so I can check if mine are up anywhere. so frustrating, especially if they are stealing our traffic -__-
Comes with the territory. The price we pay for a free internet. I can't even find where the stolen stuff is located on G. One stolen hub has pics and then another one doesn't. No links or author's names so it's plagiarism in my book in addition to outright stealing..

I just found that one of my Hubs was stolen in June 2014 and published in a magazine. I wouldn't have found out about it except that they have now put their magazine on-line. It was stolen by a slick looking magazine in Australia, and I am from the US. I told them if it wasn't...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

Hi, Team - We know you can't file DMCA complaints on behalf of our work, but would it be possible to alert Hubbers when major scrapers are found in various categories, so we can all individually check for our content?For example - there were probably many more Hubbers affected by the 'Dan Gordon'...
