How do I report duplicate content?
I spent a fair amount of time searching titles of my own articles and found an alarming amount of duplicate content. Apparently my content has been copied by hundreds of people with failed attempts to change the wording of the content effectively. I identified the websites and people responsible now all I need to do is figure out how to report them all. Any help will be appreciated.
You can report the sites with Google, which may withdraw AdSense and/or delete the search results for offending pages. Then you can file DMCA complaints with the hosting providers that are host to the offending sites.
I reported the problem to Google DMCA. It didn't effect my page rank but want them gone anyway lol. Thank you
Does the duplicate content contain a link back to your site? In order words are you credited?
Some hubs have good info on duplicate content. Do a search and you will find them Also look in learning center. Good luck Try not to be too discouraged

Recently Helium.com has been pushing the idea that writers can "make a quick killing by re-purposing" their articles on Helium (they've started paying up to $2 upfront for articles which is where the 'quick killing' bit comes from - however before you get excited, you need to be a 3-star...

So, I've been putting the Hub team's hard work to good use, chasing down some folks who have appropriated content from my hubs without permission.How often do those dupe content scans/alerts update? I'm asking in regards to the fact that I've successfully gotten a few other sites to take down...
