Duplicate Content issue

    One of my pages was listed as duplicate content. I got an email showing where the content was copied. I contacted the website concerned and reported breach of copyright and they removed the article. So now hubpages is the only place this article appears. I emailed hubpages to inform them but got no answer. I got an automated email saying cleared for publication. But in my profile still listed as duplicate in red under the page. Does this disappear on its own?

    The duplicates may still sit in Google cache for awhile. The warning should disappear soon enough.

    is there a way to put a mark in your article to tell google that it is the original piece ?

      If there were, wouldn't you think everyone would put that on every article, whether it was copied or not?

      Great question!

      There is usually no need, because they know this already. They have a pretty clear picture of what was published first. One exception is where a duplicate site gets indexed faster than the original site.

      Of course, a publisher can secure evidence to submit to Google and web hosts with a DMCA complaint. Digital fingerprints, for example.
