how to find out if a hub is being stolen?

  1. Zsuzsy Bee profile image87
    Zsuzsy Beeposted 10 years ago

    How on earth would anyone find out if ones hubs are being reused? For example Isabella found her hub copied and pasted on another site. Checking this out I saw quite a few on that chickies site that I've seen and had read on hubpages such as Jimmy's, rb101182's, VioletSun just to mention a few. There are so many sites out there, how can one have "constant vigilance"????
    This probably shows my ignorance but I  wan'na know. regards Zsuzsy

    Zsuzsy, it isn't easy.  You are asking a great question.  I'm not even sure of all of the ways you could find this info.  I think Isabella might have been checking to see where her hubs showed up in search results and came across the copied stuff.

    I guess, you can remain constantly vigilant by searching for topics you write about, seeing if anyone else has copied your work.

    I'm sure more advice will come from other hubbers, and I look forward to reading it.

    Pick a couple of unique looking phrases in your hubs, put quotes around them, and search for them in google.  For instance to see if your post was lifted, a search for this:

    "How on earth would anyone find out if ones hubs are being reused"

    would probably tell you.

    http://www.copyscape.com/

    Though it will only allow 10 searches per domain per month on the free account.

    It's not too accurate either.. I have a php-nuke site, and I just can't use copyscape - every other php-nuke site is declared to be the exact copy of mine big_smile

      True, copyscape is pretty lame. It's easier to copy and paste a few sentences into Google.

    I put in one of Isabella's hub URL's and it gave me this link: http://healthhoodianatural.multiply.com … ave_nomore

    I wonder if she knows about it? She got plagiarized all over the place...

  9. Isabella Snow profile image90
    Isabella Snowposted 10 years ago

    No, I didnt, I just reported it.

    People are really shit.

    Edited to say that while that sucks, its not as upsetting as the one thats just been stolen, I am not surprised by theft, but the Englshmen list is very first person and very personal which makes it far more insulting to have stolen.

      Glad to have been of help there Isabella.

      And to think that my advice is generally crap and has never helped you in any way.

  10. Isabella Snow profile image90
    Isabella Snowposted 10 years ago

    Advice?

    See.. you really ARE illiterate. If you had any kind of vocabulary, youd know you didnt give anything close to advice.

    You simply made a comment - which is pretty much all you're capable of.

    Now be a good little prat and be quiet.

    1. darkside profile image82
      darksideposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, I simply made a comment. Which pointed you in the right direction. And you took appropriate action.

      I didn't expect you to lower yourself to have said a simple thanks. A shame your mother was unable to teach her little brat some manners.

    It's a good thing you used the edit button to correct "You simple made a comment" to "You simply made a comment" because it did make you sound a little... simple.

    Do you get something out of unnecessarily using the quote function? You really ARE related to him, arent you.

    Im not thankful - I couldnt care less about that site, and I only bothered to report it because the abuse button made it incredibly easy.

    In the grand scheme of things, that copied page isn't really that important.

    Kind of like you.

      You seem to have a fixation on him don't you.
