    Just curious, is this a new thing, i just answer a request and I was flagged as certified original, i haven't seen this one before? 

    http://hubpages.com/hub/girls-name-from … tles-ideas

    It says:
    CERTIFIED ORIGINAL: This Hub has been granted an exception to the HubPages duplicate content penalty.

    Despite being flagged by our system as having a large number of duplicates of its content on the Web, this Hub has been reviewed and granted an exception to the usual penalty applied to Hubs with duplicate content.

    Have you seen one before?

    It means that our duplicate content checker found portions of the text in your hub on a lot of other sites, but that your hub was granted an exception to the normal duplicate content HubScore penalty.

    The algorithm probably picked up on the lyrics in your hub, but you obviously weren't claiming those to be your original writing (and there was plenty of original content as well).

    We made a lot of changes to the (always evolving) HubScore calculation and our moderation tools about 2 months ago -- this was part of that.
