My sister signed up under me and she and I work together on lesson plans she's written to turn them into something HubPages friendly.
Her first hub was removed due to duplicate content. It took a while for me to find out why, but it turns out it was completely ripped by linksy.net.
She wants to send a DMCA thing, but really can't since her hub was taken down as duplicate content. She says she did not post it elsewhere. I helped her write the thing since it takes a lot of work to turn a lesson plan into a hub.
She was really proud of her first hub, but now it's been taken down by HubPages because some other website is copying people's stuff on HubPages.
How do we go about fixing this? I don't want to have her send out a DMCA when her hub is completely gone... she'll have no link to refer the people she contacts to in order to prove that her stuff on HubPages was up BEFORE it got ripped.
Perhaps you could refer Linksy.net to the cached version of the article on Google, complete with timestamp if it still exists. What's the article's URL?
I hear you. I just republished an eHow article only to find it was EVERYWHERE. I have sent dozens of takedown notices but it was also posted on forums where there is no way to contact the staff except through signing up to their forums (which now I don't want to do).
Yeah, that's what she did. The thing is that they must have ripped the article within hours of my sister publishing it because their timestamp is the same date as her. Wish us luck!

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then asking me to wait 72 hours for a review on something I published a year ago is...

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...

Is there anyway that a feature can be added to Hubpages that identifies where in a hub it thinks there is an instance of duplication.I recently published a hub which was identified as duplicate, I spent hours researching the topic and typing it up, once published in hub pages it was flagged as...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
