I have just had one of my main hubs copied in its entirety on the website www.gtksa.org11 - it's a 'foreign' Gerogia Tech site.
What is really ironic is that it's my site about creating backlinks - in it I comment on how some sites are scraped (or copied entirely) and that you can at least benefit if the original links you included are also copied.
In this case they were, but it's such a high profile hub for me that I have still filed the usual complaint - interesting to see if my scraped work is deleted!
I went to the site but I could not find anything in English. Where did they post your article?
I have had a couple of articles copied almost verbatim. The copied articles continue to get decent search engine traffic. I am not sure if they would be getting more if they had not been copied. But I decided not to bother trying to take the copies down.
Simey, can you please edit your post so the link is not live? Why reward content thieves with a backlink?
Hubpages has a cool feature that searches for copied sites - when you go to 'my account' and list your hubs - any hubs that have been copied have a red (c) next to them - you can then go into the hub and see the URL where the copy is.

I randomly checked a few of my articles for theft tonight. Based on a Google search, it looks like one may have been copied word for word. However, the "this site may harm your computer" warning shows in the SERP. The site is jojyhinu. phpzila. net. Does anyone know what phpzila is? Of...

I am doing a rather in depth analysis, so thought I'd share what I am doing with you, so you can try it too, if you want to.I have a few steps to find the stolen content:1. Use Copyscape. Pay...

What do you do if your article is copied to a foriegn website?I've found 2 of my hubs copied to a Chinese website. The site is actually built around copying articles from English sites and republishing the orriginal articles with Chinese translations inserted in between paragraphs. They provide a...
