Through the Google Analytics Trackbacks; I found that the webpage linking to my hub has all my content from the title to the end, including the last sentence encouraging my readers to leave their comments. This merciful content thief provided a link to my hub at the bottom of the article on his/her web-page which is a subdomain, I know this wount add any value to my page.
Here is the URL to the stolen content: http://4linkwheelservice4245.jimdo.com/ … -beginner/
And here is the hub: http://barackjames.hubpages.com/hub/Goo … ners-Guide
I have never dealt with this kind of issue before and am literally stuck: A detailed "do it yourself guide" will be highly appreciated. Thanks!
If it's me , i will not worry about this, this site just can't do anything with copy content, this site is built for link building purpose and i'm sure no one read this post.
Your post still remain original and always rank higher on google.
Just a small note to you your Hub that you published, it will not last very long on Hubpages and will be removed for poor quality, I have tried to read it and have already reported it to staff. Hubpages is a site for writers not a link sharing platform so get your facts straight and go away to a site that wants you.
Tranduyninh, your response to stolen content seems very suspicious. How can you tell a writer not to worry about their content being copied by someone else? The fact that you've been here 5 years with no content makes me wonder about your credibility as a writer and whether or not you yourself are a scraper.
File a DMCA report. I gave you the link.
tranduhninh: Copied content is stolen content is called Plagiarism.
The hosting company has just responded with this email: "Dear Sir, Thank you for your message. It has been forwarded to the responsible domain administrator. They will take the required action".
So; since am never patient, I think the next step is to file the DMCA with Google if the Admin fails to respond in few hours time; right?
I'd give them more than a "few hours". What if those few hours are when a person is sleeping?
I generally give 48 hours for response to a content removal request to be dealt with before elevating the matter to Google.
Thanks Linda; I have just sent an email address to the hosting company and to the owner of the site to do the necessary. I am wondering if I can file the DMCA direct with Google; As in, I don't see any possibilty of the site owner and the hosting company responding to my request as quick as I want it.
Buildreps, JimmytheJock was not talking to Barack James. He was commenting to the poster that said not to worry about dup content.
Thanks @blbaird - Oops wrong address. Sorry Jimmy. You're right - good action! Shall we clear up this thread, blbaird?
Its ok Buildreps; me too thought he was addressing me at first. Jimmy was referring to the spammy comment posted by Tranduyninh that I should not worry about the stolen content since the site was just a link building site; despite scrapping my content from A-Z. Am happy though that the hosting company responded so fast and communicated with the site's Admin and the URL is now invalid.
Thanksblbaird! You beat me to it. My dog was calling me to go out.
Caridsa: You are like Joan Rivers on that one, saying what others haven't or won't say. I was surely thinking it. I don't even understand why HP would allow and account , without any content, to sit for 7 years
People on here actually steal other people's work? In entirety? WOW!
What do you do? Who do you contact? That would be upsetting, especially if they end being from India or some far away place where getting some kind of restitution would be really difficult.

Hi all. I've tried to reach a HubPages person for an answer to this question but haven't heard anything, so I'll ask all of you.Earlier this year I unpublished a hub to make some changes. I went to republish it last week and just before doing so I found that a blogger had pasted my entire hub, word...

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'...

I have a problem. Encyclopedial.com has reprinted about a dozen of my articles, word for word, with no credit to me and without permission, and just keeps scooping more out of my hubpages. I cannot find anything on the website about who to contact, or the company that owns it. So I went to one of...

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

I don't know, maybe this is just a disgruntled Rant by myself, alone.I call myself a Writer. By default, this makes me a Reader.And, as someone who has the arrogance to think I am good enough to call myself a writer and a reader, I have opinions, on my works as well as the works of others.So, with...

Looks like another content sniper is at work, stealing our shizz from HubPages. This so called "music news" site has sniped at least four of my Hubs and it looks like there are many other pieces pinched from my fellow music Hubbers as well. If you've written any Hubs about music (any kind...
