Can't Publish My Hub - Says Duplicate.

    I recently tried to publish a hub and it generates a warning saying, it's a duplicate and so can't be published. This Hub is composed using one of my previous articles which I wrote for a site, but I made sure to bring in down before trying to publish it here. Even I checked for duplicate content on the web, but it doesn't show any result. I contact the HP Support saying these details and still waiting for their response. Till they answer back, is there anything that I can do beforehand?  Any advice from a Hubber with similar experience would be greatly appreciated.

    Writer Fox Gave me the Solution for which I think that would have caused the Duplicate Warning....

    No Way they are stolen! I wrote each and everything by myself. Previously I had published them in a blogspot blog.(even not all of them - some I wrote after joining HP) and before I published them here, I made sure to unpublish them all from that blog. How do you say they are stolen anyway?

    After you remove content from a website, you must also remove the cache content that search engines store.

    To remove the cache of your Hubs on Google:

    http://support.google.com/bin/static.py … page=ts.cs
    (click inside the circle which says 'Web Search', then scroll down the page and click inside the circle which says 'A piece of content I am concerned about has already been removed by the webmaster but still appears among the search results.' Then, click on the link 'this tool.' You'll then be asked to sign in and then to enter the page URL and, if the page is still live, a word from the outdated cache page that you want to remove.

    To remove the cache of your Hubs on Bing/Yahoo:
    http://www.bing.com/webmaster/help/bing … l-cb6c294d

    It can take 24 – 48 hours for the removal process.

    You must do this BEFORE you publish content on HubPages.

      Thank You Very Much for Your Kind Words Sir. I had the feeling that these  cached copies must be making this trouble at the first place. They must be the ones causing the duplicates. I had no idea on how to remove them before, tried to google it, but couldnt find out the correct method. You are a life savior Writer Fox! Thank you thousand times! Will do as you said... smile

        Are you also using the copyright now that you are writing them on HP?

          yes I am... Is there any problem with that? Since they are my own work, plus they are not available anywhere else on the web, i don't see any problem with that. If there is anything I should know, please let me know The Examiner-1

    Did you pay for the stock photos that appear in some of those hubs?  If so I suggest linking to the source so reviewers know you go them appropriately.

      I wrote for the publishers and got permission for most of them, and  I use a photo collection that I have in my computer. Don't know the owners of those. And yes, I will definitely update the sources as soon as possible. Didn't know about the whole scenario when I joined the HP at first place. Still Im 3 week young smile thanks for your advice psycheskinner.

        If the publisher bought the stock you probably can't use it on a new site.

          Are you referring the publishers that granted me to use the pics? or the ones that I used from my personal collection?

            I am referring to your hubs that use stock photography.  This stock photography may not be on-sold to anyone other than the original purchaser. The license does not allow it.

            For example: "Image Direkt grants the Licencee a licence that grants in principle a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable right to use Licenced Material chosen by the User."

              WoW! that's complicated. Never thought about it.. So how do you prefer me finding out that applies to the ones which I have used? doesn't getting permission from the users allows me to use them on my hubs?

                No.  Basically if you personally did not pay for the stock photo, you need to stop using it.  Stock is not transferable by any form of permission.  The text I quoted applies to one of the pictures you are currently using and something equivalent applies to all major stock agencies.
