I posted a couple of days ago about a pet blog that had copied one of my hubs. I filed a complaint and it is gone.
However, I clicked on the blogger's profile and notice that she has several more blogs covering health, business, food and education. I have found one hub that was definitely written by someone I follow, a few of her other articles seem familiar too.
Here is her profile (I have left gaps so as not to make the link live)
Thanks for the info.
Had a look at the said sight but found nothing of mine.
You just can't trust some people.
Why can't Google stop these thefts before they get published?
All this woman's (if it really is a woman) blogs are copied content - it amounts to a couple of hundred articles. I guess it isn't worth Google's time to try to catch them, there's nothing in it for them, but having said that when it is brought to their attention they do seem to act promptly.
OK, so despite leaving big gaps in the URL, it has been removed
So she is Mey Chan on Blogger
Hi judi, there is no need to worry about this, google automatic recognize who is first created text with google spider...for example by creation date etc....
I'm not particularly worried about it, she wasn't ranking higher than my original article - I'm more annoyed that people continue to try to exploit other people's hard work. Blogger are indeed good at removing the offending posts when they are pointed out to them.
People who do that suck. Thanks for giving other hubbers a heads up. A lot of people are already trying to fix their last traffic and a potential penalization because a cheater doesnt help thing.

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely...
