Why are hubs suddenly copied by someone else?
In the last two days I have ten hubs possibly copied by someone else. Does anyone know what's going on? Some are Editors Choice, some are not. It is difficult to find the duplicates.
Hey!! Congrats on the 100 hubber score.....I hadn't noticed that before!
And BTW.....I don't even understand your question....LOL! Seriously, I don't know what you mean by "hubs possibly copied by someone else."
Thanks for the congrats. "Hubs possibly copied by someone else" means some lovely person on the web has taken the content of my hub, put it on their website, and claimed it as their own. Put plainly, they stole my work!
How do hubbers find out this info? I mean, if someone copies your work and claims it as theirs......how does a hubber happen to come across it? Is there a formula for checking this out? You had TEN stolen?? OMG!
The Hubs must have been very interesting to them Mary, I doubt that it had any thing to do with them being EC. Someone who steals writing - anything - does not want to be found. The better ones know how to make it harder to find them.
Show a couple of the titles and we can try to help.
Thanks so much. Here are two I can't find, Wedding Anniversary Gift Lists by Year and Lemon and Diabetes. I found two others and wrote to Google to get them removed from Search. DCMA charges $10 a pop unless I went to the wrong site for that.
Hubs are copied/stolen often. Unfortunately, I think it happens more often to those with very high hubber scores. Sometimes it can be done innocently by someone who 'likes' your hub. But there are thieves all over the web and they think nothing of copying content and claiming it as their own. Filing DMCA's doesn't cost anything, so you must have found a scam site if they're charging money. Here is a link from the Learning Center that explains how to file a DMCA. Good luck! http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/how- … -complaint
Mary…plagiarism is the lowest of low. It is infuriating. Isn’t there something Hubpages can do to help?
I think when the hub is popular and could give their traffic a boost, they copy it. Some people just don't know how to write but heard how much money they can earn online so they just copy some articles and add their own pictures.
I find some of my hubs that were copied were done by people who wanted to describe their own experience but can't write it in English. But there are some people who really use it for their own site because they can't write but can do SEO so they just copy the popular ones and earn with the traffic they are getting.
They make a reference to the hub but the link is to their own site.
Mary, click on copied hubs in your account. It will give you the links to each one. You'll also find a DMCA template next to each one. Go into whois.com and enter the link into the box provided under the Whois tab. It'll tell you the site owner, web host and more. The email addresses are listed in the report as well. Then send the email template to the owner and the host. You need to start there before going to Google. Once you do all that and you're confident the articles have been taken down, go into your Google Webmaster tools and request the cached links be removed from searches.
Watch out, probably they copy all of your works automatically. They have a feed which will copy everything you will write on Hubpages. You have to act quickly, file a DMCA notice to take down his site.
Else it will afect all you Hubpages profile, with all your articles positions in Google Search.
