    The website in question is https://boburga dot ru
    It has dozens of my articles and pictures stolen and I see many familiar articles from other hubbers who write about pets here.

    I assume they are planning to steal articles on other topics from here soon considering that they have several subheads tackling cooking, health, parenting etc.
    Thought to give a head's up to those writing on Pethelpful.

    They are monetizing on the articles with Google ads.

    I am having trouble finding their hosting company. It says cloudflare but I once contacted cloudflare a while back and they said they were not a host.

      Reporting them to Google AdSense will hurt them the most in the long term because they'll lose their account. The downside is you usually have to wait a while for Google to deal with it. In the meantime you can also report it to Google search to make sure the pages don't get traffic.

        You mean raising a DMCA? While I search in google some time I see result which reads similar to, "Skipped the result because of DMCA Complaint".

        Thanks Susana, it' just an exhausting process when you have over 20 articles copied. I try to do a few a day, but my preferred method was to report directly to the hosting company as they would just take it down versus Google just de-indexing it.

          If it is a Russian hosting company you are most likely wasting your time. Susana┬┤s option is better.

          It is a pain for sure. That's also my preferred option because it's the fastest.

          Cloudflare should pass on the DMCA to the host. Did you fill out this form? https://www.cloudflare.com/abuse/form

            Thank you so kindly. I wasn't aware of this option from Cloudflare. It did give at the end the option of informing the host and the website owner. Will keep posted on what happens next.

      You can report the copied content to Google here. Click "Submit a Legal Request" to get started. The articles may not be unpublished, but they will most likely be removed from Google's search results.

    I just took a peek at that website, but how on earth can I discover if my articles are on there. Do I have to scroll through them all? I don't have time to do that.
