I mistakenly posted a great article that had been in eHow. It was caught as duplicate content. I quickly deleted the article from eHow. Then I rewrote the hub using completely different wording. But none of that has changed the duplicate status. Is there anything that I can do to get this article back to original content?
The hubpages message on this states: If you revise the content so that it is unique to HubPages, your hub will automatically be rechecked for duplication.
You can write to Hubpages support. When I first joined I wasn't sure what to do and posted a duplicate article here at Hubpages. It was my article but it was a duplicate. I wrote to them and they reviewed it for me. Then all was fine.
Is there anything that I can do to get this article back to original content?
Yes you can rewrite this article from scratch to get rid of this warning.
This may be due to caching, since you already rewrote the hub. If it doesn't clear up soon, write to HubPages support.
Mailxpress and I were writing virtually the same thing at the same time! Jinx!
Guess I missed this: "Then I rewrote the hub using completely different wording."
Yup, the warning will go away after sometime.
Like mailxpress said, contact support - team @ hubpages.com - and explain your situation. They will help you resolve it!
I had faced the same problem once and I also rewrote the hub. The duplicate status was there for another two days or so and then it was changed. I think that hubpages don't review it instantly.

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

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
