Just checked one of my hubs and found that it had been copied on this site:
http://just-pet-lover. blogspot. co. uk
Lots of content on there, from rabbits to Bigfoot (!), doubt any of it has been produced by the blogger. I've filed a complaint through Google Webmaster. There aren't any ads on the site, don't quite know what the point of it is.
When you give the actual url when informing about a spammer. It gives them a link. It would be better to write out the dot, as in just-a-pet-lover dot blogspot. That is weird that a non-monetized blog would be grabbing other's writing. Maybe they just don't know any better.
Thanks - I'll remember that - I had thought that what I did - put breaks in the URL was enough to break any link, that's what I've done in the past, but thanks for the tip
Blogger gets rid of copied content very quickly.
Not sure why this person is bothering to copy stuff for no apparent reason.
My guess as to their methodology is:
1. Steal and post as much content as possible.
2. Wait until the dust settles from the theft repercussions.
3. Add ads to the content that is still left after removing what was complained about.
How did you find out? Did you stumble on it or did you purposely do a search? I'm curious to know, how would I do a search to know if my content has been copied?
I searched for it. The hub that has been copied has fallen in the rankings over the past few days, so I was curious to find out if there was a chance it has been stolen. I copied a few sentences from it into search and Google came up with my hub and the copy on this blog.
I had this happen. I used an email that I seldom use and check about once a year and told them to get away from my stuff. Also, that I had reported them. Then I did a virus scan to find out if I could tell how they got my work.
You can check to see duplicate content on Google.

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a...
