Someone riped off part of my hub, published it here and added a link to my blog. Here is the link to the hub
<issue with this hub has been addressed, link snipped>
should i report this to hubpages?
If they copied such a small amount of text and included a link to your blog, I wouldn't be complaining - you've just got yourself a free backlink.
i think so. the person should of had your permission first. i'm sorry to hear about this. hope the matter is resolved quickly for you. take care.
Good spotting, how did you find out they copied it, I'm worried incase mine gets stolen
under "my account", there is a section titled "Your Hubs", and an option called "Copied Hubs", which you can click to see if any of your hubs have been copied (i am assuming only at Hubpages though).
I don't see a section titles "Your Hubs". What other options are in that section?
I don't have this opton, just 'your profile' under account
they included a link?
that doesn't merit reporting. never mind then...
I don't have a "copied hubs" category. Are you sure? Weird... If you have a link, I wouldn't report.
It's already been explained that there isn't a reason for reporting it Wordscribe. They provide a link to his blog or hub. It's a free backlink.
That doesn't exist on my Statistic page. Sorry to say Cosette.
i have just the first four options in my account section. is anything wrong with my account?
Maybe the copied hubs link is only there if you have copied hubs?
i was also thinking in that line. But how come it didn't come out in mine?
no, i clicked on it and it said "No copied hubs found at this time."
'k, i think the HubTeam needs to answer this one. everyone should have this, not just some. i just noticed it today, actually...
Emotionally, I'm fantastic. Physically I feel like I have the swine flu (a very bad cold, I like to exaggerate). How are you, Cagsil?
I'm doing well. I hope you get over your cold fairly quick. Sounds like it's a drag.
Yes, when a fever's involved, I'm toast. Oh well, I can write anyway. Good to see you.
It was a pleasure to see you again too. Have fun writing.
i hope you feel better soon, WS
(sorry for getting off-track, chinweike.)
Thanks, cosette! I'm still ticking... the joy of young kids bringing home these lovely viruses.
Anyway, Marisa, no I don't have it either, trust me... it's not there.
Yes, mine says:
Boost Hubber Score 10 Points
Anyway, the copied hub button must be something you get when you have over a certain amount of hubs, maybe 100?
Really? I don't even have the BOOST HUBBER SCORE 10 POINT option in mine.
Back to the OP, I would definately flag the hub that copied your content, jsut because they paste a link to you doesn't mean that they can duplicate your content and devalue it.
One link is not worth several paragraphs of text.
I thought about this for a momment before posting this thread.
The thing is, Oli, it's not several paragraphs of text. It's a pretty short Hub, or it looked like it to me.
Am flagging it for two reasons:
(1) It violates the language aspect of the TOS
(2) It is way too short
Or what do you think?
I just don't agree with stealing content, about a paragraph at most with a link I would accept, but anything moer would annoy me, unless it was some massively high PR site.

I just did and found a bunch of places that have my articles...they all give me credit but I never knew that they existed before. Are these considered backlinks?

Well, I hope I am posting this in the right spot. I've been on Hubpages now a little over 3 months, and am enjoying it thoroughly, all the writers here have been great. I have done a lot of research on increasing traffic to my hubs, and mostly people seem to collectively agree that to really boost...

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...

Can anyone help me find the host address for this site which has used my original poem, article, personal photographs and YouTube video without my permission? I got a notice from HubPages indicating that "Someone may have stolen my content."I checked Whois and the site was not listed. I...

Periodically I notice a downturn in the traffic to one or more hubs, which leads me to Google the beginning or sections of it/them in search of content theft. Now HP is helping with this chore by notifying us of possible content theft and listing the sites where it's being used. There's even a...

I discovered a little red "c" with circle around it and had no idea what that meant so I clicked on that hub. It told me that my hub was apparently copied. When I clicked on the web address provided...SURE ENOUGH! This person "lovehihi" has totally STOLEN my...
