Hub Rejected for Duplicate Content

    Yesterday I took an article that I had posted elsewhere on the Internet, reworked it a little, and posted it as a hub here on hubpages. I then immediately deleted the article from the other website where it had been posted. When I logged on last night, the hub had been flagged for duplicate content, even though I wrote the content both places myself, and deleted the previous publication. Is this because of Google's cache? Do I need to take the article down first from the other place? If so, how long do I need to wait before trying to republish here?

    Thanks!

      contact the staff and tell them the original has been deleted.

        That was my first thought too, but how do you contact them? I must be missing the link!

      Even if you delete it the stuff remained indexed in Google for weeks and months. Happened to one of my hubs.  You've done all you can in writing to HP Staff.
