      I did get hold of a cached copy and check it on Google for duplication... there are a couple of sentences that came up right from the searches as copied word for word..  http://hubpages.com/faq/
      It would suffice to say that there is substantial similarity of your hub to many other articles on the web...check this out and rewrite your content in your own words . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Substantial_similarity

          copy paste and search on Google.. it is not may not really be word to word copy except for the two sentences I mentioned...you should read the link for substantial similarity ... and sort out this hub... www.goldandsilverexchangenm.com/learn/platinum.php  is one place I found one sentence word for word.. the first one I checked.. check it out..
          'Its incredible density and weight make it more durable than other metals and provides assurance in value' ..is the sentence... just one example for you to work on..

    The web page with the identical quoted text was in Google cache on 28 January 2012. So it does not appear to be a case of the hub having been copied by the other site.

    Here is a link for a 'plagiarism checker'

    I always run my articles through this, especially if I have done my research from the web. Our brains retain phrases and its so easy to unknowingly write word for word.
    Hope this helps

      That is why we should take our research from different sources. I don't like writing articles the same day I research them for that reason, the brain thing I mean.

          Indeed. A partial photographic memory must be a good thing to have.
