I just found out that not only my pen name and my writings are being linked to porn, all kinds of world advertisements, and inappropriate slander using my name as an author. I am shocked. They are taking portions of our writing and using it to sell cars, shoes, and anything on line. I would encourage all of the authors to check out your name or pen name and see which sites are using you. This is coming with the connect to Google. I do not know what to do at this point but to tell the group. Hoping it has not happened to you, but it did to myself and my husband. I already saw one name on here connected to car sales and your articles have nothing to do with it. i would hope that Hubpages investigates this. This operates on a search engine and something could have been hacked or otherwise. All I can say it is not cool and somewhat slanderous.
Can you post a link to the search so that I can see what you mean? (perform the search in google, then highlight everything in the address bar, copy it and then paste it here).
My hubs were stolen and put under otherblogs, had to report dmca
This is a theft of parts of our writing, and not only that all over the world they have been used for the wrong purposes. My husband, who has had awards for his poetry on hub pages has also become a victim of this misrepresentation. This really makes me want to put a stop to it.
It only shows it in the Google search image and then when you click it in something else.
https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=la … p;start=30
Then go down where it titles Ten Common People Food That Can Kill Your Dog.
There in the description is a listing that slanders a company about selling dog food, and also when you click the link it is a porn site.
I use Google Alerts to check for stolen content. They notify me by email every time one of my title-related keywords appear anywhere on the web. A few weeks ago, this site came up in an email from Google Alerts:
http: //www .speed-video.org/workout/workout-routine-arms-chest.htm
I clicked on the link, and, just like you, to my horror, it led to a porn site!
I filed a DMCA notice and had it rejected on the grounds that: URL not infringing!
However, today I Googled the above URL again and can no longer reach the page. I get the message:
"This Page has a re-direct loop." whatever that means. At least I can no longer open it.
Maybe you too should file a DMCA notice against offending sites. To do so, go:
https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools … &pid=0
I searched for ladybluewriter on Google and it directs me to your hubpages. Maybe something has been done. That is terrible.
I have already received responses from Google for the Two DMCAS I have filed.
I now know after speaking to my daughter, who is a computer tech that either my comp was hacked or something. After running a full scan with special software, then I could not find anything to have caused it or felt like the trojan was alluding my attempt to stop it. Over the years I have had to fight people coming in what they call a back door on my computer. I learned to deal with many things, but this was the first for this one. I thought Google was possibly hacked or had the problem. I finally tried one more thing to alleviate the problem. I was running Firefox and found out that was where the hack was coming from. It was taking my writing and sticking it to the porn and all the other ad sites. A hacker had obviously messed with it, or it had a possible worm to it, or so called virus. I suspected it, when Yahoo was not showing this search information I was getting on Google. I removed Firefox and reinstalled the browser, and it did make all that stuff go away. I strongly urge you to check out your browser, if you are experiencing the same problem as I did. We live in a world of viruses and hackers out there who take people like writers or anyone else and bring about this kind of stuff. Please let me know, if I can help any of you in the future to stop any and all of this type of problems. Thank all of you for responding and sharing your experiences. We only learn through each other, and our writing is our way of making our expression to the world of our feelings, and knowledge.

Do you think Hubpages articles feature less on google Search like it used to be few years back?Before 2-3 years hubpages would feature in top 10 search results on google, but today less hubs make it to top search results. Why so?

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

It is discouraging to find yet another website which has copied pictures of my family, my pets, my articles, used my titles and created a website that impersonates me. Today I've already wasted a couple of hours researching their host site and filing the appropriate DMCA Takedown Notices.When I did...

Traffic went down like the Titanic, this happened suddenly just over a week ago. What might be the cause? Who is seeing the same? I have a dark scent that HP, which is a critical platform as well, might become a victim of the Fake News doctrines. What do you think?

I haven't tried to have a plagiarized page removed from Google search since the change to the niches. How do we prove ownership if we no longer have access to webmaster tools for our pages? My recent request was rejected on this basis:'Thanks for reaching out to us.It is unclear to us whether or...
