Hi I wrote an item in helium and have redone it and added more to it for here.
Now I have just got a note saying it is duplicate suggesting that I have copied someone elses article
I did not.
So should I delete it or what I do not want to be in trouble.
Eileen I have just gone through a similar thing. If you go to your Hub in question , You will find a 'duplication notice',in the duplication notice there is an explanation. Do the "read more" thing and you will find a notice to send an email to Team Hubpages.
Just inform them of the circumstances and take it from there.
Do not unpublish until you have spoken to them !
Contact me by email if you get stuck.
Hope this helps you !
Same content in two different places (one at Helium, another here in HubPages) is duplicate. At least HubPages will flag it as duplicate. HubPages is looking for unique contents. I would prefer you re-write some content in either one of them. Better to alter contents in hubPages hub.
OR as suggest by relache, leave the content as it is. As such it is (duplication) not voilation of HubPages rules, but Hubpages will panish by reducing some ranking!
Thanks for that. I will give it a try. As I am traveling around os I am not on the internet very often so have to try and fix this tonight. thanks again
I have two articles that have the copyright symbols to say they were copied. I wrote both but have just left them as they are.
Eileen, the duplication warning means you didn't change what you posted here enough from the original for HubPages to think it wasn't just copied/taken from elsewhere.
You either have to change the content more, or you can just decide to live with the score penalty, since it is your own stuff.
Adding more won't help. Though that in itself is not a bad thing, but it won't change the original text.
Edit the original text. Reword it a little. Perhaps expand or explain it better. But you've got to rejig it.
thanks everyone I will reword it all then, Now that I understand where I went wrong. I gave it a different title and added a lot more and changed the ending so I thought that would be enough.
thanks again got to go traveling again and no net so will do off line then put up when I can. cheers everyone.
Gee I miss the internet. but oh such is life still enjoying traveling.
Eileen, in my early dates at HubPages, I didn't understand about duplicate content and posted several of my Helium article here. After all, Helium gives you the impression that you can post your Helium articles several times all over the internet and keep on earning money from them.
How naive I was! That's why I don't write on Helium any more, because I now understand that once it's already posted on Helium, it won't earn much money anywhere else.
Having said that, one or two of my duplicate content articles are earning a few cents here and there, so I haven't deleted them. I haven't gotten around to rewording them enough to remove the duplicate flag, either. I'm hoping that Helium will eventually delete them, because the versions on Helium are less than the current minimum of 400 words.
