    I did publish an article with title "Top 5 Reasons why Arranged Marriages Last Longer" and it was accepted after few changes and now showing duplicate. I had posted this article in another Blog and have removed it .

    Please help me in getting this sorted out

      You can publish your original content on HubPages or another site, but not both at the same time.
      Make sure that your Hub content is unpublished or deleted from all other locations online before creating a Hub from the same content.

    You may have deleted your article but was it deindexed.  I always put url in Google URL removal tool.

      If you have record of the original url where you had the article on another blog, submit it here:


      Google will confirm that the original content has been removed and clear it out of their search cache. That typically takes 24-48 hours unless there is a problem.

      If you don't have the original URL to submit you will have to wait until the cached version of the article has fallen out of their search records, which could take weeks if not longer.

      Also check to make sure your article wasn't plagiarized/copied by someone else by running several google searches on lines of text from your article.

      Once you're certain there's no duplicate text out there, you can resubmit the article/contact support at HP for review to get it republished.
