I am fuming and have reported to the site in question http://www.bukisa.com/articles/138862_h … n-progress this is the link to the thief he has stolen my work word for word is this common as it's the first time I have noticed it. What do I do?
Report them to Bukisa...they will definitely do something about it. Lol, I see you have already reported them
I sent a really snotty email. I was so annoyed at the lazy bleep and I sent him a message and I posted a public comment on the google page. A woman scorned and suffering the holiday blues is not a good combination.
Welcome back Helen.
The cheeky guy copied the photo too. I wanted to leave a comment saying the article was copied from hubpages but one can't comment without signing up. Hopefully, it should be taken down. ((Tut tut)).
I'd suggest you actually learn how to send formal notices of infringement as described in the DMCA guidelines.

Thanks relache but nothing has shown up on mine.
Relache didn't give you the link to explain about the copyright symbol. She gave you the link because
WEBSITES WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT PLAGIARIZED HUBS UNLESS YOU SEND THEM A FORMAL DMCA NOTICE.
There is no point in you all sending emails or leaving nasty comments.
I just checked out the site and wrote down a few of the titles and entered them into the hubpages. search site, and they are from this site~~~ what a jerk.
it needs to be reported to admin.
it's good your started the thread, as others are affected also.
someone made a good point here, to keep some things private.
good luck and hope all will calm down for you.
I am so sorry I hope they can make the person take it down grrr.
Sad. I hope they'll take it down. This person even left your link in the article.
How was your Spanish holiday?
No I came home and checked where i was in the google search engine .It's not just me he has pinched from other hubbers. Take a look the black stocking article is from a very good hubber I am sure she does not know. Should someone tell her or will hubpages check this out. There could be more.
Yes, the bad news is this pilfering happens pretty frequently. I have google alerts set up for some articles I write. I have never used them for hubs though - maybe I should.
Yes and all the others they are all copied from hubbers I think. I tried to I was so angry he is probably an illiterate pig who can't read or write.
http://www.bukisa.com/articles/138855_c … -stockings This is the other hub he has copied. I have left her a comment as I cannot see an email link. If anyone has her email please could you let her know this way too.
I just checked the writer out -- there are other hub articles that have been copied word for word. I suggest you check for yourself. I've contacted one of the other hubbers regarding this.
Thanks Helen for bringing this up!
I just checked myself, it seems like all of her/his stuff is copied from around the web...
http://hubpages.com/hub/Complete-Guide- … -Stockings the hubbers link is here for those that know her. Thanks Beth I am still trying to look maybe the others are from other sites.
I guess they don't check out the work too much at Bukisa. Too bad, I joined not long ago and just put up one of my own works that was published elsewhere. I thought they would question me that it was published already, I guess not.
Some of her articles are copied without any spaces or paragraphs, etc. What exactly does "editorial" do at that site?
Well I shall not be joining there and anyway doesn't it harm your google rankings having duplicate content?
I started posting stuff from Triond that hasn't done much in a couple of years. I definitely will not be posting too many duplicate articles. Actually, I think I am stopping after one
I posted 3 articles on there then gave up. I couldn't cope with the 24 cent earnings. I mean the trouble it gave me deciding how I would spend it. A car, speed boat or a packet of gum. Me and Triond are no longer friends besides I have done so well on adsense I don't even bother with Amazon as I am not sure it helps much.
Sad to say, but I suspect the thief was someone from HP. Didn't you write a thread a few days ago telling the world that that hub was doing spectacularly well?
Live and learn!
Unfortunately I agree with this. I would never disclose my highest earning hubs..... although I would suspect that any talented (but corrupt) hubber would rewrite a similar article and identify your keywords, rather than just copy and paste.
But, there are 88000 registered users on hubpages, and unfortunately 20000 of them are probably wankers....
So Helen, playing your cards close to your chest is the way forward
Dont worry, its happened to me before, not on hubpages yet.... but it has happened.
This may help you:-
no not this one this is one of my worst but it is still mine and he copied it 3 days after i wrote it.
I wouldnt worry about the why..you can always head over to "hot hubs" to see what topics are bringing in traffic..takes 20 more sec to see ifs for high paying keywords
It happens a lot, Youve arrived! Congrats
Now go for the jugular..that site is always profiting from stolen work ...if you contact them, tell them you have already made a complaint with adsense
and then really do it
https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … nswer=9894
Sorry to disagree with you again sunforged, but my two highest earning hubs get about 4 page views a day.
I have a hub which gets circa 200 page views a day that hasn't even made me a dollar, I have another getting circa 100 day that has made me just over a dollar.
Although yes, you would know why immediately.... they are 4p cpc keywords. But you certainly wouldn't find my highest earning hub in 'hot hubs'. You would need to run the keyword tool on 88 hubs to have any chance at all of guessing it.
Even then...... my highest earning hub has probably the 20th or 30th highest cpc out of all of my hubs. The keywords are actually pretty modest, but the CTR is astonishing, so I stick by what I said..... you should play your cards close to your chest. Nobody would be able to guess a 60% CTR when writing a hub, these things are flukes.
Bukisa seems to attract a lot of plagiarists - Flixya is another one that's full of copied Hubs on a regular basis.
Helen, you do know that you have to submit a DMCA notice, not just a snotty email? The following instructions tell you how to submit a notice TO HubPages, but you can use the same format to send to anyone:
Also, never leave nasty comments on the offending article. You may attract a backlash - one Hubber lost her Adsense account after someone went on a revenge attack.
good example of the dupe content myth, for the title term Helen is first, the plagiariz(s)ed content is 5th..still first page
How do you set up something like the warning so you know if someone has stolen your articles? I would love to set that up for my hubs.
It's built into the system here already. You don't have to do anything. If a red copyright symbol appears on your dashboard, someone's taken your text elsewhere. And viewing the hub will show you where.
Oh so sad to hear this happen to you, have been there and ya it does happen. My two hubs had been copied to a blog. But an immediate comment to site and he had removed the content.
The page still exists i hope that bukisa takes fast action.
My Farmtown Hub has been copied and pasted word for word at this same site. Buskia.com
I have contacted them via email and am awaiting a response.
Yes I have now sent two emails to them but had nothing back perhaps this is the way they work. If nothing is done by tommorrow I am reporting it to adsense. I would have done it sooner but I'm not too sure how to go about it.
OMG! I hope you sort it out soon Helen, these people GRRRRRR!
Yes. Google search and Yahoo search. The 2 that I have found this morning were on the first page of Google.
yes me to I don't know where to look for the flag people talk about and i could have more stolen I am going to have a good look on goole now. Time consuming but worth it.
oooo I better make sure no one is stealing my hubs too. I better start googling my hubs
I sent an email as well. Maybe if we keep sending emails, they will actually do something about it. I hope this gets fixed. I hope none of mine have been taken. Looks like I'll be doing some searching.
The Bukisa DMCA instructions are here. Apparently, they do not accept notifications by email, which makes it a bit of a pain.
If it's easier for you, you could also file a notification with AdSense.
As others have mentioned, filing a DMCA complaint is the surest way to have something removed.
I sent feedback to them too lol maybe if we keep doing something like that they'll start paying attention.
Do you mean the complaint to adsense. I did that already as I said earlier. Waiting for response but no harm in bombarding them anyway.
No. When you see plagiarized content on a website, you have to notify them in a special way if you want it removed. Just "bombarding them" or leaving comments is a waste of time.
You need to notify them using a DMCA notice. Paul has given you a link to their instructions for that.
Yes as I said I looked at all the links and have reported everyway I can including sending the site an email and the person involved. Are we misunderstanding each other as I stated earlier I have used the DMCA.
Sorry Helen, I can see lots of references to sending emails but I didn't see anywhere where you said you'd used the DMCA format. Also if you read Paul's post again, you'll see that Bukisa only accepts DMCA notices by fax or snail mail, so emailing them the notice won't work.
One good thing is the idiot kept my links in so I am getting a little trafic to my other hubs. Tee hee
Yes I see.I was getting confused and posted it in another forum post. A few more have started thread because their work to has been kidnapped.
skip right to the adsense complaint form already posted in the thread...forward a copy to bukisa, they create a system that encourages plagiarizing, there is no reason to jump through their hoops
You are right about Bukisa, think I'll be quitting that site. I was worried when they allow you to post "your own" previously published articles but they don't check it out to see if it is actually yours.
Faxing a complaint to AdSense is easy and they will deal with it quickly.
Thanks guys I had a confirmation email from google but now it is waiting in the in tray to be looked at. Oh well in the mean time I will hope to get some traffic from there but he only had 6 views so I think it has gone dark for him already.
sorry to hear that someone "pinched your work Helen. Hopefully you will get it resolved... I found one of those copyright marks next to one of my hubs. It seems someone copy and pasted a part of my hub for a Yahoo answer. go figure
Good Luck on this Helen.
I guess we can all learn that when we go away... we should lock our doors... Hell they could have taken your groceries too!
Ha ha!!!! You are all very funny. Now if they would have taken my Jimmy Choos it would have been all out war.
