    As a part of my job specification, I post the articles I write on HP and my company's blog(http://everydayyardsale.com/blog/). I usually, post it first in HP and only then do I upload the same content in http://everydayyardsale.com/blog/ .
    Recently, Hubpages marked one of my articles as duplicate.  Telling that substantial amount of the content was found in other sites. How do I solve this problem.Because I post the content in my co's website also.

    Please help.

      It's HubPages policy that content published on our site cannot exist anywhere else, so unfortunately, if you want to include content you first published on HubPages elsewhere, you'll probably have to take it off HubPages to do so (unless you completely re-write it).

      Hope that clears things up!

      Having the same content on different websites will be always a problem. It is always said that you need unique content. Search engines doesn´t know that both articles are yours. Even HP doesn´t know this. The system just recognize 2 identical contents. In order to solve the issue you can change some words in one of your articles and use some synonymous. You actually doesn´t have to rewrite the whole text, just few corrections.
