I searched "Judy Filarecki at Hubpages" today and came up with four listing using that title to their websites. I know there is a place to report this to google, but once again, I can't remember how to do it. Is it a DMCA report I make r something else? If anybody knows, I'd appreciate the instructions again time I am going to write them down and save them so I have them to refer to.
Is it just your name or is it content as well?
I'm not sure there's anything to stop people referring to another person by name
have you tried informing hubpages team about it?
I took the time to file a DMCA report to google. I don't understand how just searching generates those websites and I don't know what the string theory is, but I appreciate you input. From what I've read previously telling HP about doesn't result in any resolution.
Don't visit those sites without serious virus and malware protection on your computer! I learned my lesson the hard way on those things and now I use a tablet I can wipe back to factory settings to look at questionable sites. I recognized the style of scraping from your screen capture immediately.
It's just what happens when you use HubPages, people scrape and spin your work and sometimes use it in this odd way that seems to involve wooden furniture plans sometimes. They scrape your popular hubs, use your HubPages profile name and information, spin your content, and insert malware and sometimes spun woodworking plans into it. At one point, there were close to a thousand of them for each one of over half of my hubs!
Eventually, your own material will outrank those sites because the sites are gibberish and people also report them for the viruses, adware, and malware they give their readers. If you have hours and hours of spare time per day, you can report them to Google as spun. HubPages isn't worried about them.
They aren't using your name for their irrelevant websites.
That content is reactive, and was generated directly from your search. Had you not searched for that exact term, those pages wouldn't exist.
Wait, so you are saying that the mere act of typing your hubber ID into Google instantly generates sometimes hundreds or thousands of pages of your hub content spun together with other content with your hubber handle in the URL? Google will beg to differ.
I have the same problem Judy and don't want to contact these sites for fear of viruses.

HubPages content did not get hit by a Google slap and views did not tank due to Google algorithm changes; it is the victim of negative SEO.To see the nature of the attack:*Go to a Google search engine on a computer with no cookies saved on it.*Enter a random username and...

HI. I sorta like HP. I find some of what the rest of the people here have to say interesting. But let's be honest. I'm hear for the backlinks. I am writing hubs as part of my SEO. Problem is I can't get my score over 66 much less up to the 75 mark and I'm getting tired of it. I hop hubs every day,...

People think of duplicate content as a bad thing, but google only defines it as bad if you have duplicate content on a single domain. So now after the google slap, every writing site is trying to make sure they don't have duplicate content (ie. same as another site) when they don't...
