I have had this warning on a few of my hubs for some time and, thankfully, have had the offending pages removed from the web.
However, the warnings persist on my hub list. How can I get these removed now the problem has been dealt with?
Thanks for following up on this, Matthew.
I have a bit more information. We are now checking copied content less frequently for all Hubs once they have been identified. Hubs with more traffic are rechecked more often. This went into effect a few months ago.
So, we're stuck with little red Cs all over our dashboards, with no way to tell if the copied content has been removed ... and no way to know if a new site has plagiarized content that was already plagiarized and marked with a C before ... without checking them all manually AND keeping a separate record of our own as to which offending sites were already listed (and sent DMCA notices by us)?
If so ... that stinks. While the initial notification is very helpful, beyond that, if it's not rechecked by the system, it ceases to be helpful.
I have the same problem - I was able to get a ton of those removed (and a big Shout Out to HP for posting the warnings and the urls), but the list is still there, even though they were removed way more than 30 days ago.
At any rate - thanks for having a system in place that tracks down the offending urls - it's a huge help!
I have some that were removed well over 60 days ago, and the little red c's are still there.
Thanks Matthew for telling us how to get those notices to disappear. I will definitely be sending you a list.
Have there been any reports of Pinterest triggering some of the "copied" notices? One of my hubs, which seems to have been passed around on Pinterest more than the rest was marked three times in one day for being copied.
I also have a couple that were actually copied last November but were since pulled through Google's dispute process. Can I send you mine as well Matthew?

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

I know it's been suggested before, but please reconsider allowing threads concerning sites posting stolen content to be stickied.Just today there are several threads regarding the same sites, people cross-posting and getting mixed up on which site is being discussed. It's not surprising; the...

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...

Found one of my hubs on a blogger site - I suspect it's the same person (using a new name) who recently stole a great many hotel themed hubs. He has a series of blogs relating to tattoos, which certainly have hubs on them:design your own tattoo reviews (dot) blogspot (dot) co (dot) ukmy first...

One of my hubs was copied about a month ago and I only got the little red c by my hub a few days ago.I sent a message to the site owner but they didn't reply, so after following guidance from Hub pages and a few other Hubbers in forum posts I sent a DMCA to the hosting company. They said they...

As hubbers, we know that our content can and will be copied. We file DMCA complaints. We try to use CopyScape. We try to sign up for Google alerts.Is there any other way to help protect our content BEFORE it happens, rather than suffering the after-effects of losing Google traffic and having...
