In my dashboard there is a bright red message that says DUPLICATE underneath my hub. Why is that please?
It means that the text of your hub SUBSTANTIALLY resembles text on another site or Hubpage. In other words, the content is not unique.
That would be because you've copied and pasted content from another website, and pasted it into your hub.
As such, you don't have to worry about DUPLICATE. But any duplicate content in your hubpage would reduce your ranking!
You can make changes to your hubpage and re-submit for review.
