I just published a Hub & got a notice of duplicate content.
What is duplicate is verbatim quotes from historical documents that are of course available on the web. The quotes are the basis & reason for the Hub.
I put each quote in its own titled module that clearly identifies the source. And since I did it that way, I did not put quotation marks around each quote.
All that explaination to ask this: If I edit in quotation marks will that eliminate the duplicate content warning & thereby not hurt the score?
Or, is there an avenue of appeal to argue my case?
Thanks in advance for answers and/or advice.
When you go to the hub there should be a button to submit it for review. It will be at the top of the page with the header.
I realize things have changed since the last time I had a duplicate content warning. The button may have been moved to a different spot on the page.
I sent an e-mail requesting a review.
One good option is to sign up to copyscape. com and check if it is copied work or not.
Big Whoop. My appeal resulted in this:
CERTIFIED ORIGINAL: This Hub has been granted an exception to the HubPages duplicate content penalty.

Curious--If I were to write a Hub about--and featuring--famous quotations, would the quotes trip the duplicate content warning?

Does anyone know what percentage of a hub can be "duplicate content"? I have a hub that was unpublished because it had a lot of statistics on it...so I am wondering if I can add content to make it ok?
