I posted a hub this morning that is my own writing. After checking it later I am being told that it is a duplicate hub. Hence the message: DUPLICATE: Our system has detected a high number of duplicates of this Hub’s content on the Web. [learn more]
What do I do???
Recall where else you posted this same text. And pick which one you want to remain published.
I can't recall ever posting it before. I did a search on google for the title and got 350,000 results. Could it just be the subject or title of it?
A lot of your articles use a lot of quotations. That could trigger a duplicate flagging.
The same thing happened to me a few months ago. I had definitely written it myself. I had never posted it anywhere else on the internet.
I believe you can send it back to HP for review, with an explanation. I did that, and it was allowed to be published.
I just deleted it. The subject of the hub is all over the internet. It is my own writing but I used a lot of Bible verses in it. No big deal really.
You can always put it forward for review.
The filter is automated, no one has flagged you. It's a matter of you putting it forward for review and one of the humans at HubPages HQ having a look over it and giving it an exemption (if it passes muster).
When I first started here, every hub I wrote came up with the page that asked if it was your original writing. I'd just click yes, and everything would be fine. I haven't had one deleted yet.
I undeleted it and put it up for review. It has been three days now and it is still flagged. Should I give another day or two or just go ahead and delete it again? ?
Be patient. The Staff at Hubpages are super super busy, so just bear with it.
Everything will clear itself up!
It's been 7 days now since I first published the hub in question.
Well how silly can a man get? I unpublished it after it was flagged and kept seeing red and thought it was still under investigation. Little did I know that it was released and may have been released for a few days before I actually read about it.
I had a blond moment.
