What will you do If you saw your article in a website without you putting it there?
My article was copied by someone. I used to write ezine articles but I stopped since last year and I asked the administrator of that website to remove all my articles which they did but I saw one article I wrote in a different website where I'm not a member of.
I suggest you drop them an email. If you wrote the article on hubpages, you could give them an email as well. The lattar would probably be more effective.
I know mine has ended up on blogs and different sites, but as long as they had my name with it and weren't stealing the work and gave credit to me I really didn't mind. I guess just depends on how you feel about it, and whether they are stealing your work or just passing it around for others to read it.
Does it appear that they are claiming ownership of your article? If so, there are things you can do starting with writing to the owner of the site. Although you may be feeling angry at finding your work out there, try and make the email nice. They may be unaware that it's wrong and if so, will take it down or credit properly right away. If they are linking to your original article, then it's a good thing. The share buttons below our articles here are so people can share them and bring more traffic to your hub or website. If it was an Ezine article and your name is included with a link, they are not necessarily doing anything wrong. Ezine was built to allow people access to articles for their sites with attribution of course. The site where you found your article may have published it before you removed them from Ezine and were unaware of the change.
If you are not getting credit for the article, consult a lawyer and see what options you have.

Ok, this makes no sense, I have a few articles on AC that are in the top 3 pages of google, 1 article is actually in the top spot for its keyword phrase. How can I get that one in top spot and not a single hubpage...

Just curious if anyone is using article directories like ezine, xomba and buzzle to drive traffic to your hubs. From what I understand about pageranks, if I write an article for ezine, even though ezine has a high...

this is just my personal opinion on what everyone should do for each of their hubs directly after writing them or at any point in time. Submit them to 3-4 of your favorite social bookmarking websites (takes 2-5 minutes)...
