yeah thats right, some of my hubs are labeled duplicate. whenever i put Bible verses (specially those famous ones like John 3;16) after publishing. its a duplicate. . . . . .sometimes i just need to change it.
If too much of a Hub's content is found elsewhere on the internet, you're going to be seeing those duplicate warnings. It means a Hub needs more original content and less quotes.
i think they should exclude famous lines and bible verses. they should make a filter for that. but sometimes when i copy some page, it dont get duplicate warnings when the site can't be found in search engines like http://dark-pages.webs.com you won't see that in yahoo or google search
Duplicated is duplicated, whether it's famous or not.
The filter is based on a percentage.. I have a hub that is 3,000 -4000 words ... i have used snippets to promote it that are 500-600 words long (as long as many hubs!) and the dupe filter is yet to go off
You need to write more so that the amount of content that is found elsewhere on the web is no longer "substantial"
On the flipside ,i have an interview series that has the same questions across many sites ..but different answers....just because the questions have been published so much across the web.....the filter always goes off!
Im considering changing all the questions to image files of text and inserting thos einto all my hubs and articles across the web.
That will be time intensive for me ...but in your case...just a few bible verses...it should take no time at all
finally,, is has been cleared up, its been 2 weeks since i got back here on forums . . . . .thank you guys, , , ,hehe

Can you please tell me why i cannot publish my hub, it is not a duplicate because I am the creator of it and no one else could have written this on hubpages.

I've received a warning on one of my articles that much of it is duplicated on another site. I then remembered that I had it posted 1.5 years ago on a site for writers, but not a blog kind. I hadn't visited that site...

This sounds stupid, but there are no stupid questions, right? In that spirit, if you publish a hub here first, can you re-publish it somewhere else without consequence? I mean, will HP consider it duplicate...

First, can I change or modify the hub and will that make it not original? Second, I have other hubs that should be certified original so what should I do?
