I randomly checked a few of my articles for theft tonight. Based on a Google search, it looks like one may have been copied word for word. However, the "this site may harm your computer" warning shows in the SERP. The site is jojyhinu. phpzila. net. Does anyone know what phpzila is? Of course, with that warning, I'm afraid to click on it to find out what's actually there.
I'm not very technically savvy and would love any advice on how to view the material without ruining my computer, or anything else I might be able to do. I would feel silly filing a DMCA on a site I haven't actually viewed. Maybe Google will deindex/shut down a malicious site like this so there's no need to worry about a DMCA?
Thanks in advance.
If it has that Google warning, I don't think many web surfers are going to be reading your article on that site, so it won't be stealing much (if any) traffic from your original article.
SmartAndFun, you could try and find out the webhost for this website, and then report them for malicious activity. That could get them told off, or the site taken down... maybe. But perhaps it depends on whether the site has been hacked to serve malware, or is actually hosting malware. There's a difference, I think.
I have the same problem. I just found out a hub of mine has been copied by bading.com and a warning notice says "Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!"
I just came to post a thread about this when I saw yours.
I am generally very cautious about visiting these spam sites. I think in general it's a good idea to have all your defenses up (internet security, etc), and also try and scan the links for those sites or, indeed, have a look at the Google safebrowsing or diagnostics pages, before going in.
But if it is malicious, I wouldn't want to risk it.
Well, Google did say neg. SEO can be done now.. They have opened the gates and they know this will mainly affect small biz owners. The big brands have so much clout and backlinks something like will not affect their sites so that will attract the small biz owners to go the ppc route or worse give up.

Is anyone else being plagiarized by free article websites?I recently discovered multiple 'free article' websites that have been copying my articles and pasting them to their own site. They give the web address to the original, but that doesn't make it okay when the entire article is right there....

I had a hub copied by another site. I sent a DMCA complaint and rather than removing my hub, they changed the title and the wording slightly. Is altering a hub for use on another site without the author's permission considered legal? Is this now considered a completely different...

Perhaps this is old hat and I didn't read the memo, but just wanted to let you know (I informed HubPages) that web host service dot org has hacked HubPages. http : // webhostservice . org/ They have inserted their url into every one of my Hubs.
