I cannot find a contact area on this website. They have taken my entire Mirena article and posted it on their website.
It looks like they are taking a lot of articles from people.
How do get my stuff taken down?
I am going to start making my articles into image files, maybe that will keep people from stealing them so easily.
Thanks for your help.
That will keep them from getting stolen, but it will also keep them from being read by anybody as search engines won't be able to crawl them.
You can search for all sites that have your material on it.
Just go into Google and put a fragment of one sentence from your article surrounded by quotes. Google will display all sites with that exact wording in it.
Enter this in google with the quotes "symptoms of the Mirena Crash. Erratic emotions, rage, depression"
This sentence taken from your article. I got numerous hits when I did it.
I cannot even post a reply on the stolen Hub. Their website keeps having errors and doesn't want to load.
Is this going to affect my Hub earnings?
I really don't know how to contact these people as there are no Email Us or Call Us links.
I went to it a few times an it simply says "service unavailable"... Maybe (cross your fingers) it's already been taken down.
Thanks for letting us know!
EDIT: Never mind, it's back... Off to hunt.
Thank you for the link. I don't know how to do all that stuff, lol.
Thanks for your responses!! :-)
I'm getting "service unavailable." Maybe it's been taken down as it should be.
I'm getting the same message. I sent an email anyway though. lol
I am mad.
I am finally making money here and the thought of someone stealing traffic and possibly my paycheck kills me.
Alert the Hubpages staff. I had a hub stolen some time back and could not contact the host site. The Hubpages staff really helped me and got the entire issue resolved though it was not their problem. Since that time I have heard this again and again from many a Hubber. I hope this works out for you.
Thank you very much. I am keeping an eye on the site. It keeps coming up and then crashing. If they don't remove the article quickly, I will ask HubPages for help. Thank you for the suggestion!
As authors retain the rights to their work, it's our job to defend our own material, not the staff.
Well, so far as I know...you never have to contact the host site of stolen work anyway. You just contact big daddy Google with a DMCA complaint.

I'm figuring out who they are:
So far I know the IP address is: 184.108.40.206
firstname.lastname@example.org (email address)
They have approx. 20 sites, located in china, registrant's name:
Also says this: IP address is being used by a server (rather than an end user) to vend web pages or other on-line content.
I'm guessing that means they're using a proxy server???
Apparently hosted by Krypt Static allocations, in Orange County, CA Can't figure out how to contact or IF you can contact yet, though. BRB
Oh, okay, I think it's email@example.com
Report them to Google Adsense. There is a form on their site.
I worry sometimes that some people get their Adsense Accounts suspended - because of malpractice.... BUT it's the people who steal their articles, that are putting them in that position. People can't always work out who the original author is.
Thank you so much for all your help!! I contacted Krypt.com and now I think I will shoot an email to Google.
Thank you all very much!!!
I would like to bookmark this forum discussion. It contains helpful information. thanks to all.

I have a problem. Encyclopedial.com has reprinted about a dozen of my articles, word for word, with no credit to me and without permission, and just keeps scooping more out of my hubpages. I cannot find anything on the...

I had not realized until today that if someone has earned a Hub of the Day Accolade you can click on the icon on their profile page to read the contents of the Hubs which have earned the accolade. I am wondering...
