    I've not yet encountered a duplicate flag due to an image. What does the message actually say?

    Upon doing a quick Google, it is apparent the content of the hub is not original, hence why you are getting a Duplicate Content Flag.

    In large part, it comes from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diesel_engine

    While duplicate content that you own the copyright to is not going to hurt you, in that you aren't likely to get banned for using it, it does not help you at all.

    For example, if someone does a search for the key words "He operated his first successful engine in 1897,"  your hub will not likely show up, instead Wikipedia will be returned.

    Your content needs to be original, which means written by you. You aren't going to be able to make any money by copying and pasting content from other sources and I feel like it just makes hubpages look bad.

    Nothing wrong with doing some research and paraphrasing: that's how most of us learned to write reports when we were in school, and I do a fair bit of it. But to copy content directly is unethical.

      Agreed.

      It is also typically rather pointless.

        what pointless If I am getting some problem then I must ask about my query in this section becoz it is not about issues but to help hubbers

          I am not saying your question is pointless.

          It is a good question and is also good that you asked. I think there has been some great advice given that will help you write a better hub and more likely to succeed.

          I am simply saying that copying and pasting content directly from wikipedia, or anywhere really, is pointless.

          This is because it does not benefit you and will not help you to generate traffic.

      Its true but the subject is invention related,then how come I write those in my own words.As that must be copied. Otherwise I will give wrong information to readers.So many of people do copy paste.They cant write on any subjects related 2 internet as mobile brands n all that with their own.

        The bottom line here is that copying and pasting content in this way is plagiarism. What you should do is read up extensively on your subject, take some brief notes from a variety of sources, then craft text from the notes in your own words and style. Create links to your sources and this will not only be of benefit to your readers but will improve the way you are viewed by the search engines at the same time.

        You paraphrase.

        I generally write and research at the same time. This isn't the most advisable method and you probably want to look up and think about what Curious Traveller and Research Analyst said on the subject: they are both very correct. Or you can do it my way: write while you research.

        If you need to copy and paste material from another site on the subject on which you are writing, you honestly need to choose a different subject. I've had this happen to me once or twice, where I will start a hub and then discover that I absolutely cannot continue it because it has nowhere to go (and if it goes nowhere it will make me no money). So I deleted that hub and started something different. I've managed to write at least one hub a day (except for last Sunday) since I've been here. Pretty good record, if you ask me.

        The best advice that I have for you is to paraphrase. Do the research and paraphrase. Put some interesting information into your hub, and then link to the source. That way the reader gets all of the information you are trying to provide, but you aren't plagiarizing.

            I didn't say that at all. I was responding to a particular question that you asked here, on the forums. I also answered in the spirit of trying to help. If I have offended you in some way, I apologize and will bow out.

        You research a topic and put it in your own words. You can put links to other articles. The whole idea of being a writer is that you write things in your own words. Anything else is plagiarism.

    I would say that this is how you learn, how to improve on your hubs, if you pick a topic that requires a lot of technical information in order to relay it in a correct format, my suggestion would be to paraphrase what is being said and only use quotes from authoriative sources and you can also write your opinion about the topic and then add a link to the resource page so your readers can read more if they choose to. Hope this is helpful.

    The three hubs I looked at are copied and pasted from other works.

    In order to avoid the duplicate content warning, post content that is not duplicate.  It's that simple.

    I had this happen to me once.  I did copy and paste a section of an article from another site just because I liked the way they told a story.  I also put a link on my site saying the story came directly from there.  I got the duplicate message.  I spent five minutes paraphrasing the story and left the link up.  Now no problem.  I appreciate the fact they insist on original content and it is better for all of us in the long run.
