      If this guy is stealing your Hubs then something should be done about it. I'm pretty sure if reported to HubPages staff, some action could be taken.

      I guess I'll check this site. I just found out one of my top hubs is copied. so far, I can't find it.  when we receive that warning, does it mean the entire hub has been copied?

        I just found it...  mad 

        a hub about love found on a computer and technology discussion forum.


        it's so aggravating when there is no one to contact!

      I agree I don't mind someone sharing one or more of my hubs as long as they have the courtesy to link back to my site. I have had a few email me with that request and request was granted.

        I suppose in backlink terms this is a good thing, but they really should have asked first.

      I am agree,,, No problem for that case if we get a backlink to our site,,, May be copy site is just a part, not all of the contents.

    Even with a backlink, doesn't it look like a duplicate. Isn't that still bad by Google's standards?

      Not for the original smile

    You should not want people to repost you stuff..even with link backs. Last April my adsense was suspended by google because another site had stolen my content and then got reported..since they had scraped my work MY account was frozen and it was a mess to get straightened out. I lost 100.00 of revenue.

    There are many considerations..this is not a good thing. You should not allow people to repost your stuff! Especially not without permission.

      About your stuff - surely that's your call Marye. How you do it and how much it cost you both in your time and money - this is another question. smile

      As for my stuff - I really would appreciate it if you kindly let me decide what to do, myself. wink

    You need to report these findings to google with the web master tools.  Hubpages Staff will not be able to do anything as blogspot is owned by Google, not Hubpages.  The sooner you report someone stealing your content, the sooner Google will respect you as a legitimate author and you have a better chance of getting the stolen content taken down.

    In terms of backlinks, someone stealing your content and reposting it is NOT a viable backlink.  In fact, as stated by the OP, it can cause Google to not trust you or even worse.

    You did see they have their Facebook profile clearly associated - shouldnt be so hard to nicely or not so nicely get your content removed. http://id-id.facebook.com/mutia.aiza

    I tend to be, not so nice, when dealing with thieves myself.

    Also - the profile image matches one of a Hubber I have seen in the forums before.

    They may just not be aware of what they are doing, perhaps they think its ok because they gave you a link - you should inform them otherwise

      I agree.  I don't take those people so lightly because most of them use automated software to steal content.  Most have no remorse of the consequences they cause for the original authors.

      However, I still wouldn't mess around.  Report them to Google and teach him/her a lesson.

        Mishaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Umm, can you elaborate on those consequences, please?

        1. Kiddo Zerglin profile image70
          Kiddo Zerglinposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          First of all.

          Read this if you're worried about getting penalized
          http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot. … nalty.html

          Secondly, it does hurt authors who depend on their original content staying original.  For those who make a living this way do see the consequences when they start to notice a large amount of websites steal their high-paying content.  As for getting shut down because of it, this is very rare as Google personally states above.

          However, the G does support the idea of being pro-active.  Report the spammy content stealers with a click of the button and move on.

            I think I've read this quite a while ago - and did not find anything that could hurt the original - providing copies link back to it. Your fears are ungrounded. smile

              I agree with you BUT...  I have seen and been at the butt end of having copied content outrank my own. That's just not fun. smile

                Lisa, I think I had something like this - a few years ago. But they did not link back to me. Either way, a few more backlinks solve such a problem just fine, and nowadays with massive backlinking I do I don't even bother checking for dupes of my content. Those guys usually don't have time to throw at least a backlink or two at the steal. smile

      I know you didn't - but it surely sounded quite funny. Sorry I took a liberty to make some fun out of it. smile
