I have a recipe that got 232 views yesterday. Kind of unusual for me...I check the stats and saw a quilting site (or all places) viewed the Hub. I went to their site, thinking someone had copied my recipe, and found in their Forum, someone wrote what a wonderful recipe it was. I was all set to do battle, thinking someone had copied my Hub, but no: the poster raved about the recipe, and gave me a direct link back!
I am thrilled, of course; just thought that was unusual.
Normally when you get a spike in views like this it isn't because someone copied your work, it's because someone shared your work. Your increased views prove how important it is to share content on active forums and blogs... as long as it is relevant to the conversation.
It's my recipe on how to make a Lemon Meringue Pie in the Microwave.
I can understand why that would get a lot of views.
Because of course you want to point out what Hub exactly needs to be copied/ripped-off next....
Hi, relache. My brain is a little foggy this AM. I'm not sure what you mean by your comment. Thanks.
Many authors on this site have found that when they indicate what specific content is getting a lot of traffic, that content is then spun or outright stolen shortly thereafter.
I hope it doesn't happen to you.
So many views--That's great! Congrats.
That's wonderful. I occasionally see odd groups have viewed my beading blog. Groups that have nothing to do with beading. Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling doesn't it?
How exciting for you, Mary. That was very nice of the poster to give you a link back.

I was notified today that one of my hubs was copied. Fortunately Hubpages gave me the link and also a DMCA worded threat to remove the stolen work from their site which I copied and pasted as a comment. What is a reasonable amount of time to wait for results before doing something else?

Hi. My article has been copied verbatim from beginning to end on Scribd and I was wondering if I should ask them to take it down since they've credited me as the writer and linked back to my HubPages profile. How will it affect me if I leave the duplicate copy on Scribd? Oh, they've included a...

Firstly I want to thank hubpages for tipping me. I'll deal with the a***le once I get to my laptop (I'm using my smartphone). I found my copied work in an anime website. I'm still thinking if I will warn the copycat in the comment section. On the bright side I'll take this as a sign that I made a...
