Is there anyway that a feature can be added to Hubpages that identifies where in a hub it thinks there is an instance of duplication.
I recently published a hub which was identified as duplicate, I spent hours researching the topic and typing it up, once published in hub pages it was flagged as duplicate, I would like to see the system identify and mark which part of the hub page it feels is duplicate. That would give a person an easier task to remedy the problem rather than having to delete their hardwork.
That site may help.
I understand that HubDefender will identify if your Hub has been copied elsewhere but how does it work to tell you that you are plagiarizing? ('cause those are two really different functional scenarios)
Ooops sorry, misread the question.
However I think hubdefender would work in the same way - identifying parts already on the internet. It shows it even if it is only some of the article.
HubDefender will work either way - it does not assume that the hub is the original source, but rather scans the hub and searches online for any duplicates, regardless of which source came first.
So a hub copied from existing content will still be displayed as duplicate content in HubDefender...
Is it possible to find duplicate content even before publishing the hub?
I'm not sure how there could be duplicate content for a hub before it's published, unless it is intentionally being copied (for example using an already-published blog post as a hub).
Anyway, HubDefender would not be able to search an unpublished hub, but you could manually search for duplicates by cutting and pasting lines from it into Google...
An easier was is to make sure your write everything in your own words. And that if you have published it elsewhere that you rewrite it enough to be original.
If you have any articles with similar content not on HubPages but elsewhere , even if this content is your own work, this will most likely trigger the flag.
The feature is already in the TOS for this site. Write original, unique content not found anywhere else.
I'd like to know what percentage of a hub being duplicated counts as duplicate. - 10%- 40% - what exactly?
I've got three hubs at risk - one identified as duplicate. Well they are jokes I thought really funny.
I've since re-written most of them, but obviously not enough because the duplicate tag still stands.
I want to know the percentage because I really don't feel up to re-writing jokes - it's not my forte, so to speak.
I have another jokes hub which is also copied content but so far without the warning notice, and a quotes hub which HP staff allowed after consultation.
The new Google algorithm takes copied content into account, and so it is important to only publish original content.
This is an interesting question for me, too. I have avoided rewriting any of my older work until now.
Some of it was work-for-hire stuff I did a really long time ago- much of it never got published. At any rate, I revised well (I think). I don't want to rip of anyone who already paid me for unique content, even if it isn't published.
I am just waiting to see what happens before I try any more rewrites.
Does anyone knwo how long it takes before something gets flagged?
Thanks to everyone that replied...Although there have been some real good suggestions made - unfortunately non-of them allow me to identify what/where exactly is this 'Duplication'. This should be a feature that Hubpages can develop into the existing platform.
I don't want to be paying someone else for checking something which has not even been published. The feature should be a little like spell & grammar checker in word. There has got to be a developer in the community that can string together some code that will check and identify an hub with duplicate content then high-light those areas.
When I was accused of having duplication on another site, I first put every sentence one by one of my article in to the google search bar to see if it was a duplicate, there was 3 sentences that were, I couldn't get them to unlock my hours of hard work so I finally just closed the entire account and came here...Now before I even publish any article I use a plagiarism checker, and enter every single paragraph of my work into it searching both google and yahoo at the same time...If any of your sentences or paragraphs are on any other site it will show you exactly which one, that in turn showing you exactly where the duplication is, now I'm not sure how reliable the plagiarism checker is, so I am going to put each and every sentence into the google search bar and the plagiarism checker to see if they both find the same results if they do then I'll stick to the checker it's quicker, I'll have to wait a bit tho since all my paragraphs I enter in the checker point directly to my other hard work I finally ended up closing...I have a hubpage ready to go but will wait till the checker says 0%...Here's an example I took your 1st paragraph of your posting in here and put it in the checker the results were - Total Matched Phrases / Total Submitted 33% (1/3) thats both google and yahoo but it only found this "Thanks to everyone that replied" as a duplicate, if you click the number that it gives you under Google Results Found in this case it said 8+ it'll take you to every site with the exact paragraph/sentence...Like I said tho not sure how reliable the checker is it's called an article checker,
I don't know which hub of yours was marked duplicate, but it looks like it could pretty much have been any of them. Here are a few of yours where substantial portions at least are duplicate:
