I'm finding this site that appears to be a proxy (that's what it looks like to me) that has a LOT of my hubs. The thing is that it's appearing in Google search.
Here's a sample google search term that turns up my hub and this proxy site:
"That said, I'm sure it's incredibly helpful for those who work in fields (marketing) where there's a need to see how"
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=%22That+said%2C+I% … in+fields+(marketing)+where+there%27s+a+need+to+see+how%22
^^I know a "Let Me Google That For You" link is meant to be condescending, so I'm sorry about that. I don't mean to insult anyone, it's just the best way I could think of to clean up the url.
After that search runs, click: show omitted results (or whatever it says) to see the weird proxy thing that's going on.
This site seriously shows up in the search results for like 50% of the hubs I look for. (I'm on a DMCA spree right now.)
What do I do about a site like this? I filed a DMCA anyway, but it seriously looks like a proxy. I don't like/understand how it's showing up in Google search, though.
Anyone have an idea?

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...
