I found a copied article above mine in Serps. The site is an answer site which has part of article available and rest of article hidden. You have to sign in and give up privacy rights to get into site.The answer to the question is a duplicate of my hub. The rest of hub is the hidden part. Typing sentences into Google Search led me to this information. There must be an abundance of copied articles on this site.
I have shortened the name in the subject above. Is anyone familiar with this site?
Yes, heard of the site. Also read this a week back: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102373455 - How Quora Plans to Sidestep Google's Algorithm.
The BBC regularly use this site for some of their articles. I have used their questions and answers (via the BBC) to write an ESL lesson plan about being rich.
What's even more disconcerting is that Quora is one of the sites that did well after Google's last algorithm update while here at HP we lost traffic.
Further evidence of what a pile of crap Google's algorithms are.
This is really maddening. I hate these hidden text sites, and I have others that I can't prove, as a lot of the text is hidden. Thanks for info.
I also found a whack of my articles plagiarized by hidden text sites. The pages fed into Amazon pages so I reported I think 3 of these sites to Amazon to deal with. If they lose their income then that should kill those pages. I was lucky in that the flip on one was slow moving so I was able to get both page urls as they flipped
Thanks for this info. It makes me so angry that this site copies stuff and is rated highly by Google. You were lucky they removed your stuff. I filed a report, stating it is above mine so hope I don't have to mess with it again. I need to put all my hubs in Google Alerts.

Is it true that Google is inundated by billions of articles that it's suffering from a system overload, and unable to give quality attention to new and better written articles? Just imagine, the poor Google crawler had...

I'm relatively new to this site.I know most sites of its type do their best to be "Google friendly" which translates into "family friendly" (a phrase I hate, by the way). Over the years when...

I pretty much have the same amount of traffic everyday but last week 5 of my hubs were moved to niche sites and since then I've has less half the traffic as normal. What could cause that?

I have posted several questions recently as I try to decide if I will write "for" the HUB or write and post on my own domain site.I can see pros and cons for both. Hence my reason for asking several questions...
