    I see where fellow hubbers have published my articles. How is this done and how is the money divided

    This has to be an infringement of copyright. Have you contacted these fellow Hubbers to find out why they've put their name on your material? I'm surprised Hub-pages editors passed them, as I've had to substantially rewrite some of my Hub-pages to pass muster.

      No, I haven't contacted them... Must be 'legal' because I see anywhere from 4-20 names of hubbers in the stats section of some of my hubs. When I click on the name, I land on their respective profiles, but I don't see my hub anywhere in their profile

    Are you sure they aren't just linking to your hubs, and you're getting traffic from them (thus they show up in stats)?

    Hi, copywriter31. Seeing a hubber name in your stats doesn't mean they have published your article, it just shows they have read it. Most reader stats will come under hubpages, but sometimes individual names come up. I think it depends what route they took to find your hub, I did read about it a while ago but forget the answer. So they are not doing anything apart from reading. If someone shares your hub with their followers, again it's only you who has published the hub. They get a small percentage for sharing, which comes from hubpages' share of revenue and does not reduce your income if someone reads it. It's a good thing because your hub has more exposure.  Hope this helps.

    When you pull your stats and you see other hubbers listed that is a GREAT thing. That doesn't mean they have published your articles or that they have even read it. Go to the bottom of any of your articles. You will see multiple other hubs written by other authors. If someone is reading that hub and clicks on someone else's hub at the bottom you will then be in their stats page. It is simply showing the authors where traffic is coming from. So when you see those author's names it really just means you gained traffic from one of their hubs by the reader clicking your hub at the bottom of their article.

      Lol, that explains it.. ... I thought one hubber had read a hub eleven times without commenting! I stand corrected, thanks.
