I was researching progress of some of my hubs on Google and a site called Badoer showed up with some titles that look suspiciously like mine.
When I checked it out they had lists of my titles, tons of adverts on the page.
When you click on 'read more' it redirects to Hubpages, so I guess it is not really duplicate content.
But a few questions came to mind as I am still relatively new to the online world and I was hoping someone more experienced could explain.
Does this help / hurt in anyway?
How do they pick up the titles?
How the hell does this get on to the front page of google when it is just a page listing my titles?
For your reference here is an example - not all the titles are mine on this one.
I'm not really worried about it - just curious about how it all works as hadn't come across this before.
Just had a look and it seems to be a huge redirect site ~ mind you I know nothing about these things.
I've come across a couple of these in the past but did nothing about it as my article wasn't duplicated it was just the link back ~ bit like this.
Think we need a techy person to explain.
On another note are you as frozen solid in Essex as I am in Bedfordshire?
Hmmm I'm not sure. My initial thoughts were that they must be using RSS feeds to display the links and that they may have included a tracker ID in the link so they get some revenue, but I can't see it in there.
Looking at the page source, they seem to be using a google syndication feed which displays the links on the first or second page of the google search results.
I don't think it's anything to worry about. You may get some traffic from them, but the links are no follow so you won't get any benefit in terms of link juice.
That's my impression, but I may be completely wrong. I'm not that techy
Thanks for explaining - I will try to get my tiny little mind around it
Yes it is freezing here Creative but the snow showers are pathetic - not impressed at all.
That's autoblog which is aggregating the content from other sites giving linkback to source in most cases to clear out from plagiarism. They're also jamming keywords to get attention from SE's and it is working for them. If you notice those links which redirects with some possible hidden CPA ads in it. They're making money by showcasing content of others-just like google.

For example if I got a backlink from a webpage called lets say www .computers. com/cpuforumIf the pagerank of the domain (www .computers. com) was lets say 5 but the page rank of the sub-domain (www .computers. com/cpuforum) is 0. Will search engines recognize my backlink as a pagerank 5 or...

I recently updated a hub and it was unfeatured for quality.This is a page with over 180,000 views (search engines like it) and a view duration of 4.11 minutes (readers like it).There are a lot of Amazon ads but they are regularly clicked by visitors so they are obviously a valuable part of the...

My goodness, I have read oh so many forums trying to figure out why my once flourishing hubs suddenly took a devastating nosedive. I have learned a lot from others comments & shared experience. I have also recognized that there seems to potentially be a number of possible reasons why many hubs...

I think a Google Page rank update happened today. I spend 15-18 hours working on the internet. A few minutes ago I noticed that one of my domains have gone from PR0 to PR2. I checked all my major sites and found changes in most of them. Some moved up on PR and some lost.

HubPages used to provide us with an organizational tool within our profile pages that enabled us to group or categorize different hubs. For example, poetry, short stories, articles, etc. This issue has probably been addressed previously, but I was hoping HP would consider restoring this...

I know it fluctuates depending on a billion variables...but for you hubbers here who are making decent money, how many backlinks do you create for each hub. Please specify between social bookmarkting, article marketing on directories like ezine, blogging and commenting on blogs.Thanks!
