I started to publish a hub about my favorite jokes that I compiled online. When I published it, I was told that there are duplicate content. I immediately unpublished it, but I was thinking that of course, there is duplicate content because these are jokes told and re-told. Do I need to re-write the jokes to get the hub accepted?????????
I wondered about that too, because there are so many jokes sent by email that are priceless, and not everybody gets them sent so don't see them.
If you make a Hub that if full of content that is found elsewhere, it's going to be flagged automatically by the filters.
If you don't want your HubScore reduced by default, you need original content. If you don't really care about your HubScore for that Hub, you can just leave up the duplicate content.
Thanks Relache. I've deleted it 11 hours ago but when I checked it a few minutes ago, the HubScore went up. Don't know what to make of that.
Thanks PD .
IE, actually those are not my jokes but I liked them so I thought I would compile them. If I re-write them, they wouldn't mean the same thing. So I unpublished the hub then deleted it.
