Hey Hubpages Team,
What is this site?
Has my article there.
They seem to have even copied the look and feel of hubpages. This particular article (my original one here in hubpages) of mine therefore is not getting any hits at all.
Here is the site: https://mcenter.spb.ru/autos/Ten-Cars-w … since-1980
It's quite common for articles to get scraped and posted to other websites. It's a huge inconvenience. This can often be remedied by sending them a DMCA complaint. Unfortunately there is no way to stop this from happening. It's usually done by computers and not actual humans so putting a copyright at the bottom doesn't help much.

I've had great success following the steps in this article and I use copyscape frequently to check for new infringements.
In addition to filing a DMCA takedown notice as Chloe mentioned, I just want to bring to your attention that you should never post the link to plagiarizing sites as you had done. That only gives them link-juice that helps increase their ranking in search engines. You can easily show us the URL by breaking it with spaces.
Thanks so much for throwing some light on the matter. Silly. I just gave more eyeballs for the infringing site.
Let me have this answer stay on for some more time, so that others can benefit and then delete it after a month.
Thanks so much guys!
I've had Hubs copied down to the descriptions of the images included in the article. Agree with other commenters that the best solution is a DCMA take down request, which I must complement Hubpages for making very easy.

One of my articles on an HP niche site recently underwent the Premium Pro editing process. The editor decided to add about 800 words of her own research to supposedly "improve" my article. Personally, I hated the addition. I do not feel comfortable including other...

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...
