I recently had one of my Hubs flagged for revision because it's a duplicate. This particular Hub is a photography post, with seven of my own original photos, paired with descriptions. I truly don't understand how I could have duplicated the work of someone else. Does this mean that someone copied my Hub? This is the first time this has happened to me. I contacted the HubPages to see if I could get some answers. Has anyone else had this happen to them?
Have you published it anywhere else. It would still be a duplicate even if you wrote it. Hubs must be unique to HubPages.
Check out the forum link to the plagiarism comments. There is a big thing going on with a site that is copying all our work.
Using a Plagiarism checker works for me to find where any duplicate content may be at on the web. I use the one below and it works well for me.
You can enter the hub text or the url into this tool.
