    Why are some of my hubs constantly being copied yet not good enough to be featured on HP?

    I have found a number of my hubs on other sites. I know how to file a DMCA and follow up to get the content removed, but what I'm confused about is that most of them have deemed as not featured by HP. While I understand the need to keep hubs updated and indeed good quality, why are so many of mine not only being copied but being featured on the first page of goggle? I'm writing articles here that are then copied by other sites who are obviously making money, and then HP take mine off as featured so I earn nothing. This is rather exhausting and very demotivating. HP need to look at this.

    Gabriel I think we need to get pro-active and move them ourselves and put that little copyright logo and claim on them. I think if I were doing this professionally I would write it here, if featured leave it here, and if not move it.
    It seems to me you should find out what sites are getting your copied articles on top at google and move them there yourself.
    I note that you have very good commercial/recipe articles that are top notch, great style and you are productive. So I hope that gave you a thought to work out.
    Here is a cool forum you should look at: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/117715#post2481464

      Thank you for your answer Ericdierker, it's very helpful. I do know the sites as I have tracked them down through whois and they are popular sites. I really appreciate you looking at my articles too. I think you've just sent me on another direction:)

      I would read more of your articles if just reading them did not make me gain weight ;-)

    Most articles that are stolen en masse are taken by "scrapers". They don't care what they steal, they merely look for "keywords" and then scrape the content and place it on spam sites. If your content has a lot of keywords that people are searching for to buy... a lot of spammers will want content on that topic without having to write it themselves.

      Yes, you're right I do realize this, but my aricles are stolen and posted on different sites, well known ones not spam sites. The last one was an Irish tourist site, and the writter even posted his own name. It's annoying. Thank you for your input.
