How can I find out if original material from my hub has been copied on another website?
I have read complaints in the forum about hub material being stolen and would like to know how to check. Also, have any of you experienced this?
You can sign up for google alerts. This will tell you every time your work appears elsewhere. OR...you can google your own title to see if someone else is using your entire article but crediting it to somebody else.
Hubpages has a feature built in that let's you know when your work is duplicated online. This will be under your account summary. You can also use free plagiarism checkers if you are suspicious of someone taking your work.
Someone on Hubpages suggested this link to me so I will share it with you. It definitely works! My favorite part about it is it will check the search engines to see if someone ripped off your meta description/summary.

Got my first notices of copied content and sure enough, two are on flixya.com, one on a Menopause site, and one on a Wordpress site. I wouldn't care, only the first three are earning Google Adsense. Even then I wouldn't care, but it is always alarming to think that someone might come...

I just saw a hub with almost the same title and content as one of mine. What can I do?My hub is about nine months older, but much of the content is remarkably the same.
