i was thinking about adding a few blurbs off another article will this cause a dupe flag?
HubPages has never revealed the exact percentage that triggers a duplicate flag, as they are really trying to encourage all original content. You'll find out if you include too much.
Just do it.
Don't include any outbound links to start with, and you should be fine.
The flag is just a warning. It's not permanent. If you don't get the warning within 24 hours it should be fine. But if you have outbound links on the page you'll also trip the Overly Promotional flag. So add them after it seems that you're clear so as not to confuse matters.
I've quoted chunks of poems and speeches in hubs, and not had any trouble.
thanks for answers, sometimes i just have a list, paragraph or chart i think would be relevant.
