Is This Allowed on HubPages?

    I think not, but I'm pretty new here so I want to make sure...

    One of the comments on the Project Backlink Hub includes a link to this hub...

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Build_10_000_Li … hree_Weeks

    ...which is a word-for-word copy of this blog post...

    http://www.blogstorm.co.uk/build-10000- … n-3-weeks/

    I note that the "author"-hubber, Sindicut, has provided the blogstorm url at the bottom of the hub (although not in the form of a link back to the blog and not really in what I deem proper attribution format).  Does simply making such a small effort to indicate that you're not the true author make this okay in the eyes of HubPages?

    If not, is this where the "flag this hub" link comes into play? 

    I'm sorry if I sound like a complete newbie, but I just didn't want to take action against someone's hub incorrectly.

      What're you're looking at is a classic example of a Hub that contains duplicate content.  Feel free to flag it.

    Thanks, relache, I did. 

    Ironically, the score has improved since I first visited the hub.  Hopefully others have flagged/will flag it, as well.

    Score improved because now many people are reading your post and visiting this hub. You gave it a publicity LOL

      Now it's coming up as "Sorry, this page is no longer published." so not all publicity is good publicity big_smile
