Hi All, severl of my hubs are appearing on a blogspot, and I had to report it to google. Here is the site www. secondsearch.blogspot.com/
Go and see if you have of your hubs there (they are stealing a lot from hubpages). If so, then go here to report them http://www.google.com/dmca.html
There's some malicious code on the second page, too--tried to "scan my PC for malicious files" which is a sure sign of malicious code.
Yes, sad but true!
i'm too scared to go look. i don't want my computer getting a virus...
Something happened to my computer when I went to check if my hubs were there
I'm not sure giving them a link is a fantastic idea, and a warning to some, the website seems to be very keen to provide an array of pop ups. Yay.
Everyone can make there own call on this, but I believe awareness is better then doing nothing...they do have a lot of pop ups, so check out under "archive" see if your hubs are there and then get out. I have gone in there 4 times, no harm done
is there is a backlink to you hub? if not, report. Oh and go the site thru google, this way if there is malicious stuff on the site, google will warn you
I do and I did, THANKS for that info!!
Anybody else have this happen?
I'm with Cosette I'm scared too but thanks ladybird for telling us. CUTE pic by the way
kind of you to give the site a live backlink...
they are running all sorts of annoying ad scripts..you can report them to blogspot for TOS violations, you can file a DMCA with google to get them removed from the listings or you can even click on the "ads by google" image and report them to adsense for TOS violations and copyright violations. w/o revenue the site loses any reason to create..perhaps clicksor has a similar method to report by
It has tons of hubpages on the site, there are other threads floating around about it. Just to point out, these little scraper sites arent much concern unless they are outranking your content.
If you notice any blogspot scraper site then report it on splogspot.com.
When I checked my system detected 8 viruses and 2 were Trojans so I am certainly not going to go back there. I had to scan my entire system and do updates. However thanks for the information.
Nasty site. I got a the third page of copied articles before AVG or a pop-up blocker or something on my computer wouldn't let me go further and booted me out.
OK where was I? Oh yes there are copied articles there by MoneyGlitch, rmcrayne and TeaFor2 as well as others. I could identify them because the copier left in links to their other hubs at the foot of each article.
Yup. Beware of that link!!
Like some others here, my computer got a T virus. Hubby spent several hours running a scan and cleaning my computer files.
If its a big problem, or a illegal site, Hubpages will sort them out I think, they look after us
thanks for alerting us to this Ladybird - I too have just found out at least one of my Hubs is there.
If anyone needs Whitney05 wrote a great Hub on what steps to take if this has happened to you.
I feel so . . invaded:(
And I was wondering why my content was being copied. i am obviously not the only one.
Google banned this blog, so all the duplicate content is gone. :-)

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

That is another copying site which has been stealing our hubs from Hubbers at Hubpages. My hub How to Cure Vitiligo Naturally was copied and pasted onto this website: <link snipped> under the name "Zimmer". This bad guy changed the pictures but didn't event bother to...

I finally started a blog, because people had told me it was a good way to get more traffic for my Hubpages.So now I have this blog on blogspot, and I have my Hubpages widget embedded there, but how do I get traffic for the blog?The Google search engines act as if the blog does not exist, and it...

This person likes hubpages sooooo much, they have decided to steal a bunch of hubs:http://nirmalbharathi.blogspot.com/2008 … e-you.htmlI am not terribly bothered because I often add links to all my other stuff in my hubs, but if you are, check them out - I saw a lot of hubs cut and pasted...
