    My 2nd best performing hub has been copied by someone on blogspot. It actually has been there since last year but I just found it today. So, I just filed a DCMA with Google and it will be gone soon. I notice he has copied the other 2 articles. He has probably forgotten about the blog.

    What I find funny is that I have a link to the original article in the text and so now I have a backlink from him smile Not that it will give me anything from this crappy site.

    My article is still tops on Google and third overall for the category.

    I just copied some text from my hub and pasted it into Google. I do it occasionally. This one was still getting good traffic so I hadn't checked it before.

    This site captured one of mine.  It's like a photo of articles.  My article has all formatting, photos, HP logo etc intact.  Even has my hub comments. I would have thought it just linked to my hub, except navigation bar shows otherwise, and I found the site by copying a line from my hub and pasting into Google.

    Seems like integrity is seriously lacking! That is not in the spirit of blogging-what I like so much about it are the personal experiences shared!

    Blogger took the article down. The blog is still up though...all 2 posts. I have a feeling he may have gotten dinged before.

      Just a snippet of text, not the entire article.  I put mine in quotation marks but have no idea if this is really necessary. smile
