I'm very new to HubPages, and excited to join. I was using Triond prior to this...and did NOT like it. So, I deleted my published material from Triond and published them here instead. Now one of my articles is saying "duplicate" under it in red. I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can remedy this? also, will it show "duplicate" if these articles are also on my blog? I don't want it to affect my Hubscore.
Welcome to the site! You might want to read this:
The triond content may take awhile to be recrawled by google, after which time the tag should be removed.
It's not a good idea to ever publish the same thing on two sites. Why? Because google will always rank one higher, meaning the other one won't get half as many hits as it could and also is kind of pointless. If you do want to post the same article again, rewrite it with a different edge to it - this can open up a whole new range of keywords and you can get that article out from the shadow of the better ranking one.
Welcome to HubPages, ecomama2b! If any of your work has been published elsewhere on the web, it will be considered duplicate content. While I'm not an expert on this, I would suggest you rewrite your stuff, making it original for HP.
All the best!
I am in agreement with WryLilt about the material that is no longer published elsewhere: Given enough time, maybe a week or a bit longer, the duplicate warning should go away. If it does not, contact staff and ask them to manually review the hub.
Thank you so much for your reply's and welcomes!
What about my blog content? will that be considered duplicate content as well? this is what I just read:
"You are allowed to post content on HubPages that is also published elsewhere, like your own site or blog—but you cannot place any promotional links on that Hub. " Will it negatively affect my rating to have this on my blog?
thanks so much in advance!
Yes, it will probably be considered duplicate content if it is published on your blog or elsewhere as well as HubPages. There will be those penalties. You are advised to rewrite it for HubPages, as WryLilt and Lorlie suggested above. An alternative solution is to remove the contents from the blog.
okay, thanks so much
I will edit and rewrite my content.
You are welcome. Sounds like a good decision.
Just as a clarification...
once I have re-written the material, and the Triond material dissolves, the "duplicate" warning will disappear?
The duplicate warning ought to disappear under those circumstances. If it does not, that would probably be because of a cached version sitting somewhere on the Internet; this is unlikely, but if it does happen you can contact HubPages and ask them to manually review it and remove the flag.
It should.. I've done the same thing before, and had the same issue.
Try this tool: Article Checker.
Plug in the first paragraph and hit enter. If nothing comes back, you should be good to go. The tool is pretty much self-explanatory.
Also, just try copying a couple of your articles sentences into Google and see if they show up anywhere else.
Good luck with it!
Sometimes it take awhile for the article to be removed in the net Site (original site) if you moved it to another site, contact the staff
Welcome to HP!
It seems everyone has clearly helped answer this question for you - Just wanted to say welcome to HP!!!

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200...

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...
