I had an article on Associated Content on visiting India which I made a hub off. Then I deleted the article from AC. However the hub is still being shown as a copied hub.
How do I get rid of the copied hub status?
I'd like to know this, too. I have one that had been plagiarised. Google took down the copy after I reported it, but that was months ago and the symbol is still there. No biggie, just a wee bit annoying.
It will take about a week or so, maybe sooner, for it to be un-indexed by the search engines. After which, you will lose the duplicate content label you have received.
However, you could have kept the writing on AC and created a variation of the same thing on HubPages, so you could benefit from both.
You would have to make sure that you did not copy a lot of the information or wrote a completely differently worded article on HubPages.
Since you deleted it from AC, then you'll simply have to wait.
I have deleted it about three months ago
That's why I'm wondering what to do next
Then I would say that you either have too much wording that is copied from another source or email Staff at Team@HubPages.com and see if they can tell you what is wrong.
