Judi Bee . . . Thank you sincerely for the heads-up. If I should discover that this site which is operated by low-life creeps has opened some of my hubs, should I feel flattered or irritated? Or both? With NOT finding my items on this site a foregone conclusion, I can see why your hubs and those of Glorymiller have been lifted due to you both being to talented. And I am serious. Kenneth
Hey, Judi Bee and Glorymiller, I have just visited "this" site and I must WARN YOU because my anti-virus, malware, software went nuts when I hit ENTER and the page downloaded. So if you two haven't went deeper into this den if thieves, DO NOT. Just want to help my friends. Kenneth
Judi Bee, thank you for the info, I need it for the future. Most of the scum does not like poems so I only had couple stolen, but not by this site. I would like the DMCA information. Hope you get them to take down the scam website.
Thanks, Judi. Every hub I checked was copied by those thieves. I've filed a DMCA on 10 of them with Mochahost dot com, requesting a complete shutdown of the site and referencing this thread as well. We'll see what happens.
I found hubs by merely searching their site for my titles.
I've found stolen hubs in several catagories so far, and suspect that they scraped everything I have. Using the stats page, I merely sorted by title (alphabetically) and then searched their site, using their search button, for hub titles. Every one I checked was duplicated there.
Thinking I'll wait for Monday, and start sending a DMCA every day with another 10 hubs. Eventually it might get their attention, especially if I reference earlier emails.
Depends on the host. GoDaddy, as I recall, limits it to one. Others to more. Should Mocha want only one, well, we can absolutely flood their in-box with DMCA's.
Hubbers working together can accomplish a lot - I've seen it before. One thief in particular we chased all over the internet...as we got one site closed down he'd open another and scrape again. Whereupon we'd collectively send a hundred or so DMCA's and get that one shut down. Eventually he learned not to mess with HP as anything he opened would only last a couple of days until we discovered it and shut it down again.
So has anyone gotten any kind of positive response from their DMCA filed? I tried sending to abuse@Mochahost.com but that email got bounced back. I then sent to "tech" and that one got me an auto reply with a ticket number. But so far, nothing of real interest to report.
It looks as though this site has simply switched hosts and is up and running again at GoDaddy.
I notice he's using Adsense, so the best plan is to click on one of his ads, scroll down to the bottom of the page, click on "report an issue with the website" and follow the prompts to lodge a complaint as the copyright owner of as many of your Hubs as you can find there.
If he loses his Adsense that will hurt him a lot more than being dumped by his host.
Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. ...
If you have noticed your traffic decreasing lately on some of your hubs, this Facebook page is copying content from several hubbers and publishing it on their FB page. The Facebook page is called OHealth...
Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more...
