Okay ladies and gentlemen I apologize if this has been posted in the forums before but I just found this.
It's Google's handy dandy little scraper reporting tool!
Yes, if someone has scraped your content, you can use this to report it directly to Google.
This is the link to the form:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/vie … mp;ndplr=1
You pull up the little form, and copy the search query from Google that gave you the nasty little scrapers sites in search.
I used the first line of my article.
Then you type in the original site's address (yours).
Then you copy and paste the vile scrapers url (theirs).
Then you add addition details as you see fit.
(keep it clean though)
Click submit and send the info straight to Google!
I have no idea what the turnaround time is on this considering Google is probably getting TONS of these reports.
I just thought I would pass this on to my fellow Hubbers.
It's a temporary form I think. Google are only collecting data with this form so that they can tweak their algorithm. They won't actually do anything about an individual problem.
Still it's worth reporting, because loads of scraper sites are showing up above my hubs in their search engine.
Now that would be handy thanks! I got notified of a 'scraped' hub it's NO FUN either
Thanks for finding this link. The problem has happened often with my hubs. I would hope they would take action.

I've been looking for some time now but I just can't find it. I'd like to get started on the thousands of webpages with spun content and malware that are...

Google Scraper Report allows you to alert Google by providing the URL of the page where the content was taken from, the URL where the scraped content appears, the the search result URL that demonstrates the copy outranking the original.Read more at http://www.searchenginejournal.com/matt …...

My latest hub is ranking #3 for a 200,000 searches per month keyword, and #4 for a 50,000 searches per month keyword. It has been there for at least 24 hours now, yet there wasn't a single visit from Google yet. What could possibly be behind this anomaly? Anyone else experienced something similar?

It's already been reported that some of last month's scraper sites are up with new hosts http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/111525 . Just letting everyone know that at least one more site has reappeared today (travelingandplaces) and that more hubs are being added to all the sites today. I...

I had to laugh about this one. Hummingbird is not an update to the algorithm like Panda or Penguin, but an entirely new one according to Web Pro News. It is suppose to be Google's biggest update in 12 years and they have only existed 15 years. Hummingbird hit a month ago, so we don't need to worry...
