My hub was pulled to be revised. I wrote entirely on my own and now have no idea where to look to see which hub this was similar to. Do I have to read all the hundreds of hubs on similar topics or was there a specific complaint so that I could review that hub and revise mine???
So I am not allowed to write about anything that might be found else where on line even if my writing is original? I guess I am confused. This was a hub that was written to help people prepare for dying. It is a common topic but I tried to summarize my lifetime experience as a physician helping people with this journey. Now it is withdrawn and I am asked to modify it to make it original but I have no idea what was deemed "similar". Is there a way to ask the person who pulled it?
No I have not. I wrote it from my experience only. I appreciate the recommendations. I will send an email. I was really enjoying writing these articles but I may not be doing this in the right venue. I just was hoping to help a few people. Thanks again.
Thanks. I tried that for every line in the article. Not able to find any articles on the internet which cover all the topics I do in this manner and the only thing I found were words that were similar but no complete articles. Thanks though.
You are not understanding the rules I think. The article may be not be entirely same or may be presented in different format but even if few lines are appearing as it is in another blog then that is considered copied. If you would like then you can send me you article through the messaging system and I would help you find the duplicate content.
However, I am a new user here so if you are finding any difficulty in trusting me then I am sure one of my seniors would volunteer to help you.
Sometimes a Hub is moderated because it is written about a heavily saturated topic, even if it is not actually copied content. (That is, the topic is covered in many different articles on the internet.) But if the information in the Hub, or the way it is presented, is unique and adds value to what is on the web, publication will be permitted. I think (not 100% sure) that in these cases, a human moderator has to check the Hub to be sure it fits those criteria. The topic itself may have automatically triggered the notation for revision, even before a human moderator ever saw it.
I think your best bet is to contact the staff directly.
I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and...
