Today for the second time I've found an unauthorized traffic site that is sending traffic to one of my hubs. In the past I warned them that their link is not wanted and that my Google AdSense account will be in jeopardy if they do not remove their link. They of course, denied any links, yet the traffic stopped.
Other than checking the stats on every hub for daily violations one at a time, is there a way to block this site permanently?
I do not wish to give them any publicity by posting a link here and have reported this activity to the "Contact Us" people. What more can I do to prevent this in the future?
Thanks for any help.
There was a recent article on Search Engine Watch on the tricky task of trying to remove backlinks. I recommend you go read that as it covered the subject quite well.
Thank you Relache,
I found the site and read a few paragraphs on an article titled "Life After Google Penguin" before I ran across this most useful tip:
"It wouldn't hurt to keep a tinfoil hat handy as well" which is what I plan to do in the future.
Thanks again for the suggestion. Really. I'll try to find the article and learn more about this.
Do you know Miranda Miller? She writes at Search Engine Watch, she might be able to send you a link, rather than searching for it.
I looked up Miranda Miller and no, I don't know her. Her profile sounds like she is an expert on this kind of stuff. I am not at all.
What I was really hoping for was an "EASY" button that I could push, like on Twitter, to block unwanted sites. But I'm sure that is just a pipe dream.
Thanks for responding and for your input.

I started about 7 weeks ago and have been publicizing/backlinking most of my hubs through the bookmarking sites SheToldMe, Snipsley, Xomba and Redgage.Does anyone think (or know) whether Google, as part of its new ranking system, will now be penalizing pages linked to from sites such as these...

I finally joined Snipsly for backlinks and was happy to see it's a wordpress based site. Since all my own websites are WP I love it since I am so familiar with it.Are there any other article places like Snipsly out there that are run by wordpress? I would like to join as many as I can using that.

Well, I hope I am posting this in the right spot. I've been on Hubpages now a little over 3 months, and am enjoying it thoroughly, all the writers here have been great. I have done a lot of research on increasing traffic to my hubs, and mostly people seem to collectively agree that to really boost...

There is a lot of bad SEO (search engine optimization) advice out there, and the use of automated services that procure backlinks to your Hubs is one particularly egregious example. Using services to get backlinks can result in your Google AdSense and/or HubPages account permanently banned. Yes, we...

If you guys could take a look at my California vacation hub, I'd appreciate it. I've tried to do everything right with it -- arranged it so ads would be at the top, added some nice personal pics and links, I just added some RSS feeds ... and it's getting almost no traffic. My Staten Island hub is...
