Several years ago I published an alternative medicing newsletter. The site has been down for at least 6 years. My first 2 hubs are articles that I have written for that newsletter years ago. I thought that there was some valuable information here that I could share with our fellow hubbers. There is no link anywhere and in no way do I profit from them. They have been statused as Duplicates. I feel like I did a really BAD thing!
Do I need to worry about this? Is there something I should do about it? I don't want people even thinking that I might have stolen these articles from somewhere.
Dont worry you are the only one that sees it. I have some duplicates.
And I have completely reworded them and yet they still show as duplicate. One of my duplicates is my best earner and I have not touched it at all.
So decided not to worry about them anymore. Only get grey hairs.
It can drop your earnings so they so. Good luck
I agree with Eileen. Don't worry about those. Many of us have written posts that appeared in our own blog sites, for example, and I wouldn't hesitate to put good ones here.
It could be that someone else has copied your original articles. If you search on google using a distinct phrase from your article you should be able to find it.
Your the only one who can see your "duplicate warnings" so your readers wont think they are stolen

In the last few days I have been getting up to six email notifications of the same hub being published. These are usually one or two minutes apart. At first it was only duplicates of each email, but I just got six email...

Clearly I'm missing something...there used to be a symbol that got attached to a Hub in the "my account" list when that Hub was duplicated on the Web. But now I don't see that icon referenced in the legend for...
