Resolved: duplicate content

    If we use quotes and excerpts in a hub and attribute them why is it that the duplicate tag sometimes appears?
    Is there a certain threshold you cross - say 10% or 25% duplication before the tag is automatically triggered?

    What would be good to know is the duplicate content before publication - this would save hubber and HubPages alot of wasted time. Could HubPages set this feature up?

      It's easy. Make sure your original content is a lot greater than what you quote. Put stuff in your own words instead of quoting. I've never had a problem with that.

    Chef-de-jour, I have to agree with Uninvited Writer. The vast majority of your Hub should be original content. If you are triggering the dupe checker, you do not have enough original content of your own.
