How often the HubPages copy finder spider crawls the web and update the data in our hubs? I have managed to make some bloggers to remove the copied hubs on their blogs. But the copied info remains on the hub.
Hi SS.............. It really would be faster using a machine gun wouldn't it?
Each hub is checked about once a month, you can wait for the errors to go away which they should eventually, or I believe you can delete them yourself on the copied hubs page under my account.
I've got a Hub where I got all the copies deleted from the sites that stole my content, but for the last several months, the main hub listing still shows a copyright symbol next to the Hub name.
Paul, I can not find any tab or menu item to do so.
Could you tell me where this "copied hub" button is supposed to be? I don't have that option on my account. It would be useful to have/know where it is? Apologies if it is blatantly obvious I tend to not see the wood for the trees sometimes...
Click on the my account tab. You will find this button on the left hand side below statistics, broken links, etc
I don't think it's available for everyone. My dad doesn't have the option in his account.
The delete that Paul's talking about, shows up as a gray circle with an 'X' in it to the right of a link that has been removed. The title of your hub still remains, and the hub still says it's been copied when you on the hub, but you don't see the link itself anymore.
I have a question about counterclaims, and the content being deleted from the sight, but google still indexing the blank page, how does this affect a hub? I had coutner claims that just stated, we've removed the content, so I never responded. Google responded back with, we're leaving the page indexed, but when you go to the page, it's blank.
I have a hub that has been marked as "exempt from the duplicate hubs penalty" (or similar phrase), for many months, yet it would be nice if I could just not see such a heading when I, as the author log into it. I wrote it, this was proven and surely this additional info is no longer relevant. I can't find anything in my account that allows me to delete this (or follows the heading Paul describes here for Sunseven), so will this ever go away? I know only I can see this, but it does bug me a bit that it is there at all when the fact it was my original work has been verified many months ago.
Not everyone has the feature. It was released a while back in beta mode and only certain people got it. I haven't heard any updates since.
It really should be a site-wide feature that all hubbers have, as it's a great tool.

In reading the forum post from two years ago when all Hub URLs were changed to Subdomains, many people reported that copied Hubs began to outrank theirs when the change was made. I think this might happen again and we have five forum threads going right now about copied content. Be sure to do...

If you are seeing a drop in traffic, start checking for more stolen content. After seeing a nice surge in traffic following the latest Panda thing, I suddenly tanked. Stats were not updated quickly, so it took me a bit to realize I was indeed seeing a 'trend.' Sure enough - there...

True, I've reproduced some of my hubs in other places, but many of them I unpublished too. However, one or two of my hubs I have noticed have been copied and I either cannot find any trace of this when following the link, or, as as happened recently, I have sent a snotagram to Google and had then...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

After reading one of Paul Edmonsons latest hubs about scraping and the Penguin update, I decided to test out Google search with some snippets from my (used to be) most popular hub (got the idea from Pauls hub)Turns out all the sentences have been used on other sites in one form or another,word for...

Yet another copier out there. I just found my latest hub copied at myfirstbloghotel dot blogspot dot co dot uk. Word for word copy with 15 of my photos in the sculpture gardens (with innerspin as the source,) They have dated it 18th June, which was before I published my hub, indeed before I'd...
